We ate, we laughed, we learned. Daniela is a great hostess, and I had a great experience.
Charming, energetic and extraordinary experience. I found plenty of delicious foods and two wonderful people. Ipek was so lovely and talkative and Nuray was so energetic and hospitable. The food was amazing, plenty and dessert was incredible. I felt very special at the table and it was so warm atmosphere. It was a great experience for me. I strongly recommend it to anyone looking for an extraordinary experience and nice people to talk to.
My wife and I visited India for a month...cooking/lunch with Noopur was the best thing we did on our entire trip. Great conversation, phenomenal meal, afterwards she took us shopping and we bought everything we need to cook tasty food back in the States. Cannot recommend this experience highly enough.
This is the best thing I did during my stay in Chennai - Jyashree, my host, was very welcoming and the experience was so much more than I hoped for. We went to the market to buy supplies (with a temple visit and a little souvenir shopping on the side), then Jyashree showed us how to make various delicious south Indian foods, including sambar which I had particularly requested. The meal we ate was one of the best meals I have eaten in India and I left very full and happy! I would definitely recommend this to anyone, whether you have an interest in cooking yourself or would just like to experience a proper home-cooked meal.
We had a Traveling Spoon dinner with Patty and Enrique in their beautiful home in the countryside of Santiago. It was so nice to get out of the city and see a Chilean home. It was a Wonderful Experience to get to know the lives of 2 Chileans and enjoy the meal with them. We feel like we have a true Chilean experience along with new friends. I HIGHLY recommend this experience.
Since I was traveling to Chennai on business, I did not have a lot of free time to explore the city. Having done cooking classes while on holiday in other countries, I knew this type of experience would be the best use of my limited time. If you are a person who enjoys learning about culture, eating great food, and meeting new people, Sundari does not disappoint! Both her and Krish welcomed me into their home and I felt immediately as ease in their presence. They went out of their way to ensure I was well taken care of. I encourage you to share a table with these two; best way to spend an afternoon in Chennai.
The experience with Linh in Hoi An was terrific and first rate; wonderful market trip where she bought from regular local vendors many of whom she clearly knew. We finished the market tour with a cup of coffee at a local cafe then to her house for the class and meal. Her teaching was experienced and organized - easy to understand and duplicate at home. The food was delicious and she offered a beer with lunch:-) The pick up and drop off were great as well. She gave a sweet parting gift of cooking chop sticks and a Vietnamese veg peeler.'
Our time with Somkid will be the most memorable moment from Bangkok. Somkid was a lovely host and his background as a professional chef not only provided us great food but improved cooking techniques.
Lucia was the most gracious host and exceptionally talented chef. It was like cooking with family, if your family were a world renowned chef!
Diep is bubbly and adorable and her energy makes the experience with her special. What I loved about the experience with Diep, was meeting and having lunch with her mom, dad and brother at their home. They are proud to offer ‘a little bit of the countryside in town’. The food was good and the experience was rich and it was great to meet this woman and her family - it gave me a solid cultural experience.
