I am Nistha. I am the founder of The Kitty Party in Berlin which organizes food and cultural events.

I come from a small town in the northern part of India where I learnt the skills to use Indian spices from my mother and grandmother.

My passion is to simplify Indian cooking and its ingredients. With these experiences, I am distilling all my knowledge in a format that is going to be fun, engaging and widely useful.

Over the last 7 years, I have hosted countless events across countries for individuals, families, teams for organizations like Capital one, HP, Stilnest, Iconosquare, Care.com, Allbirds and also for the Government of Korea.

You can connect with me on Instagram: kittyparty_spiceitup and get to know more about my company The Kitty Party at www.kittyparty.de

This was a great introduction to spices. I have been meaning to educate myself but had no idea exactly where to go to learn specifically about this aspect of cooking. It was super-helpful and it's clear Nistha has a deep knowledge of the subject, including why combining certain spices produces health or flavour benefits. She knew about the chemistry, which added a layer of logic to things I just hadn't thought about. I can highly recommend this experience.

In the session, we went over the spices that I have and she made recommendations and explained how to use the spices well. This will be really helpful in the future, and also to better understand why earlier “experiments “ turned out badly.

What a wonderfully fascinating session with Nistha last night about the spices in my cupboard. It's not often we stop and really smell in order to learn about what we're putting in our mouth. I loved the personal experience especially as I had Nistha all to myself and with some Bollywood dancing to end the session, it was a perfect start to the weekend. :)

This was such a great experience. Nistha is so kind and personable and really teaches so much about spices. She explain everything in a way that makes it easy to pick up the basics. She has a wealth of knowledge in this field, I learn so much especially since I'm vegan. She gave me a lot of common sense tips, in which I'm going to apply to my life especially her dad story. Again thank you so much for this experience.

I took this class as a teambuilding activity for a small group. We all love food and we all learn so much!! We loved the experience with Nistha, especially to learn more about the different techniques, uses, and traditions. Nistha is very knowledgeable and we really appreciated that she was able to personalize the experience based on the spices we wanted to learn more about. I highly recommend this experience, time just flew! Thank you Nishta!
