Experiences in Goa
Maestros of the Kitchen
Goan cuisine, a blend of Portuguese, Catholic and Hindu Saraswat lineages, is as synonymous with the State as its sun, sand and beaches. Vivanta Goa, Panaji offers guests a chance to try their hand at cooking unique Goan classics. Opt for a guided morning visit to the market to shop for fresh ingredients – including fish off the boats - and return to roll up your sleeves for a tryst with fresh crab, mackerel, kokum, spicy Chouriço, cashew nuts and a splash of feni - the beloved liqueur of every Goan. Stir up a Sungta Hooman (Goan Prawn Curry), Chouriço Chilli Fry (Spiced Pork Meat in Goan Red Spices) or Semolina-Crusted Prawns along with the all-time favourite Chicken Xacuti (Complex Combination of 18 Spices). Vegetarians can learn to cook the flavourful Batata Bhaji (Baby Potato Cooked with Spices and Onion in Tomato and Coconut Blend) and Beans Foogath (French Beans with Grated Coconut and Curry Leaves). Your meal is served at Goan Stories, leaving you with enough Goan cooking chops to impress friends back home.
Cubana Dinner at the Rooftop
A lavish dinner set against the picturesque backdrop of the city of Panaji and the moonlight glittering on Mandovi River in the distance sets the tone for an unforgettable evening.
