    Chef Purna and his wife were excellent hosts and very patient when our (read: my) fingers were all tangled up trying to create those different (five) momo shapes. During the course we learned how to make everything from scratch: the dough, the filling, and the folding of the momo. My personal favourite filling was the buffalo filling: just exquisite. Chef Purna also shared his secret ingredients at the end, and we took a picture of his list of ingredients. A truly tantric training.

    Amazing host!

    Purna was such a gracious host during our momo class! He explained everything as best as he could (he doesn’t speak much English, but the guide was a helpful translator), he was very patient, and held such a fun class. The momos were delicious and he even shared some of his homemade “wine” (for foreigners, it’s closer to hard liquor than wine) before the class ended. I would recommend this class to anyone!
