Author Notes: We did a house boat cruise in Aleppey back water recently
Let me explain the food part of a houseboats total three staff will be there which includes a cook and two crew members.
And the cook who will be interacting with guests and will be of great important to guests , because he will be making food , serving it in a hygienic and professional way but keeping a family environment .Being a locale and experienced , he can explain the scenic beauty, culture ,tradition, sightseeing places and local waterways and safety precautions . Our chef can easily interact in English, Hindi ,Malayalam(Our language)and many regional languages.
