Jyoti was a fantastic host - we learnt so much about the history and contemporary Indian cooking. She made things simple, and the food was delicious. Next time we are in India, we would come back to Dehli just for another lesson with Jyoti! Thanks!

I love Indian food, and have been cooking it for a very long time. Some basic dishes eluded me, however, and I thought I would take advantage of being in New Delhi to learn some new recipes. What Jyoti showed me, however, was a world of techniques that will make my meal preparation faster and tastier, as well as a... More

A highlight of our trip to India was to meet Jyoti in her home and experience her wonderful cooking. She is a gracious and charming host. The food was wonderful and I wrote to her later asking for a recipe, which she readily shared with me. Definitely hook up with Gourmet Desire!

Excellent culinary adventure! Jyoti and her very kind staff were fantastic. I'm a previous chef, and her knowledge and skills were exemplary. She taught me techniques I had never thought of previously! Lot's of fun, awesome food, and very educational. The Tikkis were my favorite. If you love Indian food, you'll love Jyoti's class. Nice folks! I highly recommend!!

A cooking lesson and introduction to Indian culture all in one. Jyoti could not be nicer and her teaching skills are impressive. I am not a talented cook and was hoping not get too embarrassed about my lack of fundamentals kitchen skills; not to worry, it was very laid back and enjoyable for people of any skill level. It was... More

We had an easy journey to the class picked up from right outside the hotel, very kind lady leading the class, highly recommend for a group of 2. Great teaching on fundamental Indian cooking, we were given handouts containing all the recipes we cooked. Jyoti was very flexible and taught us to cook recipes thar we wanted to learn.

This was an incredible experience! Jyoti is so welcoming, flexible, easy to contact, and friendly. I did the dinner class with the spice market tour. The class was customized to my tastes, preferences, and level- something that really made me feel at home! Gourmet Desire is a must do and it made my trip to Delhi complete.

This was a great experience that went beyond just cooking. I told Jyoti I wanted to have cooking sessions, a place to stay, something fun to do at night, and in general learn about Indian lifestyle. So, she invited me to stay at her place for two days of all of that! We had several cooking sessions over 2 days,... More

From the moment I communicated with Jyoti, I knew that I would be having a very special experience. I arranged a cooking class for six of us. Her communication was great, and she even called me in the US to clarify things. We cooked a complete meal at her house. She was a very welcoming host. First we visited a... More
