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 & grandmother. I am a regular reader and blogger. Spices are fascinating to me.

My passion is to simplify Indian cooking & 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, Allbirds, WWP, Expedia, Government of Korea. Stilnest, Iconosquare, Care.com & many more.

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

My third time at this experience. We learnt about using Turmeric this time, with wealth of knowledge from Nistha about its usage in daily life. This experience is worth attending multiple times.

Fantastic evening with delicious menu. I did not know that I can cook so good :) I also did not expect that online cooking classes and learning about Indian spices can be this rewarding. Nistha was super interested in seeing my outcome, she was telling some nice stories from her life which made me think about this classes as more diving into the Indian culture. It was great experience and I recommend it to everyone.

Our host, Nistha has made this a very special and energetic experience. I learned a great deal about spices through different perspectives. It was fun tasting unknown combination of spices, taking notes about their beneficial effects. It gave me a boost and will start experimenting more bravely at home. I would recommend it to anyone who likes trying new things. It can be a great team event and also a great bonding activity for couples or families. Looking forward to learning more from Nistha on another event!

Nistha's spice experience is truly great! I learned so much about spices! Nistha is a very warm, friendly, and knowledgeable person. She was able to answer all of my questions and I really enjoyed the snacks we made together using the spices! I'm definitely interested in taking another online experience with Nistha. She is very passionate and tells great stories. The set-up was also delightful! I can't wait to use more spices in my cooking using her tips! Highly recommended :)
