Junko is a delightful woman who speaks very good English and cooks delicious food. First she took us on a tour of the Tsukiji outer market. Although I've been there a few times, we went to places I'd never seen, and Junko provided interesting information about the food and market history. We learned a lot about Japanese culture and lifestyle while chatting with Junko.
Michiyo and her husband were very kind and warm.The cooking experience was great and we had very interesting conversations about the culture, the habits of Japanese people. It was a great expérience for us. I recommend!!
The things I love best about travelling are the connections with the people I meet and how, as a result, my mind and world open just a bit wider than they were prior to my adventure beginning. This could not be truer after my evening shared with the two of you. You have both inspired me in so many ways. Again, thank you so much for such an inspirational, life changing, and enjoyable evening for me. It was the highlight of my trip and so very much appreciated.
We all have heard that in order to get the best of a local cuisine, you've got to eat in someone's home....well, this was the answer. I just feel like we had a very unique and special opportunity to witness and join in the life of a family living in Addis - that have so generously opened their home to welcome 'strangers' curious of their food and culture.
Lin was an absolute delight to spend an evening with. She's personable, smart, funny, and a great chef. With Lin, my girlfriend and I had what may be the peak experience of our 2 week trip to SE Asia. Lin's beautiful home /cooking school is just outside of Chiang Mai and her class was equal parts delicious, fun, informative, and hands-on.
We absolutely enjoyed the night at the Bed&Breakfast with Cinzia. We had such a lovely and friendly welcome with some appetizers and some good wine. With fresh ingredients and basil from the garden, we made the most delicious meal...and it was all vegan! We couldn't have had a better first Traveling Spoon experience, thank you!
