Meet your guide in the late afternoon at the entrance gate of the Crown Plaza Mall. Before you head to your host family’s home for dinner, you’ll get a taste of the daily activities and habits of Jaipur’s locals.
Work up an appetite for the evening by learning to play ‘Carrom,’ a beloved table game enjoyed by Jaipur residents. This traditional pastime is believed to have been practiced by the city’s Maharajas and Ranis. After trying your hand at this favorite leisure activity, continue to the Jaipur market where you’ll pick up fresh vegetables and meat for the evening meal. Enjoy the colorful atmosphere of the market as you chat with locals and learn to navigate the vegetable bazaar.
Head back through the streets of Jaipur as you proceed to your host family’s home to prepare your meal. Once you’ve introduced yourself, you’ll get down to business, learning about the mouthwatering array of spices, curries, and herbs that form the foundation of Rajasthan cuisine. Make sure to take a few notes so you can remake the dishes back home.
Once dinner is ready, have a seat with your local hosts. You’ll dig into your ‘scrumptious’ spread alongside your Jaipur family, asking them questions about their culture and cuisine as you see fit. Before leaving for the evening, you’ll receive a to-go packet of masala. Then receive assistance from your guide as they help you make your way back to your Jaipur hotel.
