Even after staying in the family, I prefer to cook my own food. However, my family can share whatever they cook. Which is organic but you may feel it's very basic. If so, you can cook for yourself. You can use Kitchen, Utensils, groceries, and dishes for cooking food. However, I do expect you to replace the groceries you consume during your stay here. Please do not bring the egg, onion, garlic for cooking. Since we have many crockeries, you should ask me which should be the right one to Cook. Please clean everything including kitchen after using - such as wiping food off the counter, rinsing dishes & put in the sink, or dishwasher if there's room, clean up spills etc
