Putu and her family allowed us to experience the REAL Bali. Cooking was fun and the food delicious. We felt very welcome in their family compound getting a glimpse of the life of a real Balinese family. We can't recommend it enough!
Rossy and her daughter, Emily, were nice hosts to speak with about local culture. The sancocho was delicious and it was nice to find out that it is usually made on special occasions. Since it was my birthday, the family even brought out a candle and sang me happy birthday, and I was so touched. It was a great memory.
We've taken a few cooking classes around Southeast Asia and this was one of our favourites. One of the highest praises I can sing about the food is that when I asked my partner what her favourite dishes were, she picked three of the five. The setting is also really special. I highly recommend this class, and I wouldn't change a thing about it.
I was so thrilled to have a more culturally immersive experience as a family…it was as if we had met this wonderful man while wandering the streets and he took us in to give us a traditional Balinese meal cooked in his home. I left feeling like we had each taken away so much knowledge on top of truly enjoying every part of our little adventure with Dewa. If you share my passion for food, travel and an authentic cultural experience I highly recommend trying it out on your next trip!
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience. The family was incredibly hospitable and conversing with them allowed us to learn a lot about the food, culture and history of Kathmandu, and their family itself. The food was absolutely delicious - definitely the best we have had in Kathmandu. Overall, it was a wonderful cultural experience.
Sundari is a super hospitable host. She welcomed me and my friends at the entrance of her house with her husband and treated us like daughters. Everything looked great and was amazingly delicious! I think everyone not only vegetarian but also non-vegetarian can get satisfaction from her cooking lesson and hospitality.
Great market experience, excellent home chef. Went into our host's home and had the opportunity to share her kitchen experience.
Oh my gosh my Traveling Spoon experience at Shivani Sahni's home was nothing short of wonderful. She greeted me with kindness and hospitality and, of course, fantastic food. I loved talking with her, her husband, and daughter about traditions and culture in India. It was really a wonderful evening and one that I will always remember.
It was an amazing experience, Dewa and Jero were amazing hosts and we really enjoyed their company!
Our time with Alex and Alej was fantastic. They were both extremely friendly and easy to talk to. They provided us with a great experience and tons of local knowledge. The food we prepared was amazing.
Panphailin (Lin) Puntira was amazing! She is kind hearted and just a good soul to be in company with! I am going to see her again and again. Couldn't recommend her enough. This time with her made our hearts full of love and we learned so much about the Thai, Lana culture.
