Meet your Host
Rita Gourmet Class

I hail from the state of Goa located on the west coast of India and famous for the pristine beaches, architecture, culture & delectable cuisine. I have worked as a Customs officer for several years before I voluntarily retired to convert my passion for cooking into a full-time profession. I have been extending culinary experiences to travelers from across the globe for the last ten years. Curries, Masalas, Chutneys, and several Goan dishes are part of my cooking classes. I have learned cooking skills from my family and have attended several cooking courses. I look forward to you joining me in my online culinary journey and enjoy the aromas and flavors of Goan Cuisine.
