Lord Curzon’s ‘The Venice of the East’ Alleppy is renowned for its picturesque setting by the shores of the Arabian Sea and its intriguing network of palm-fringed backwaters, which are now a tourist’s delight. It is also known as “the land between the sea and the network of rivers flowing into it”, identified by its former name ‘Alappuzha’ . Traditional rice boats journey you down the backwaters past picturesque villages, emerald fields of paddy and coir-making craftsmen. The coconut is a versatile god-given fruit and the people have learned to use it in unimaginable ways. From the tender coconut drink to coir mattresses to sauces in curries and desserts, people from Kerala love the coconut. Prior to the cooking demo and sit-down traditional Kerala meal, your hostess Rani is going to tell you all about Alleppy and the coconut and what they mean for Kerala. So get ready for a truly culturally rich morning with your knowledgeable hostess and her family in their beautiful home.
After welcoming the guests, and after a brief conversation to get to know each other, Hostess Rani will be giving a short presentation on Alleppey Town, coconut and coir production. This will be followed by lunch in a perfect setting of a spacious garden with green sprawling lawn and veranda.
