    We had an absolute blast and the entire experience - making the reservation with TS, preparing for the event with our hosts, the actual cooking class, and the enjoyment of our meal were all absolutely first rate!... Highly recommend Traveling Spoon and even more so, Josefina and Ignacio!

    ...Kavitha is clear in her instruction and very patient. We have been getting the recipes beforehand and they are well written as well. We have actually signed up for our third class which will take place tomorrow. Looking forward to it!

    Mirella Calvelli is an excellent host. She audibly and visually explains the process thoroughly. She is very genuinely excited to educate and makes you feel that you are a welcome guest in her home. I highly recommend her and the Traveling Spoon as a wonderful experience.

    ...She was incredibly informative, patient, and a joy to spend time with. The recipes were easy to follow and she was such a delight to have virtually in our kitchen. The food was delicious! We would definitely make the recipes and take another class with Reshma again!

    It was a beyond terrific experience for us both! Gabriela was fun yet very helpful in showing us how to work the dough. The recipes were excellent. I wholeheartedly recommend Gabriela and look forward to trying other Traveling Spoon online classes.

    We had a fantastic time learning to make Mongolian cuisine! Bee and Soy are great teachers and were able to share so much about the dishes we made and their Mongolian culture! We would love to take another class with Bee and Soy in the future!

    We had a wonderful Thai cooking lesson with Pea! We really appreciated her flexibility around our limited access to ingredients, her encouragement, and her support. She was a very skilled, generous, and welcoming teacher. ...We'd love to learn from her again!
