Definitely the best experience in Bangkok. We've been to Bangkok for few times, but never visited someone's house and never had lunch there. If I expected 100%, it was like 120% or above. Would definitely recommend it!
Marie is studying culinary and wants to own her own restaurant - I would be the first customer!! All in all it was a wonderful experience that travelers don't usually get - to really speak to local people about their lives, their work, the politics of their country...and most of all the food. Marie was great to let me help her in the kitchen - she is a natural! It was a heartfelt and amazing experience - thank you Marie and Florent!
Vinita and her family are very warm and welcoming. I was traveling by myself, and they made me feel right at home chatting with them. Vinita prepared a number of different dishes, and all of them were DELICIOUS! I would highly recommend Traveling Spoon - it is a great way to enjoy sampling local food while also meeting people from that area. It was so much more memorable than eating at a restaurant!
It was a pleasure to meet Satomi and her father, share a meal and enjoy their company. Seeing the apartment and learning about the lives and work of our host and her father were very interesting.
Jessie gave very good instructions on how to find her place and she was well prepared for our cooking session. We enjoyed talking to her about Korean life and we enjoyed the casual homely atmosphere.
Amol was an excellent host and the villa is an oasis from the usual crowds of Goa! It was, by far, one of the best experiences we had in India for what we learned and the connection we made. After a refreshing fresh fruit juice, he gave us a tour of the fruit and vegetable plants around the property, many of which are unique to the climate and cuisine. We picked fresh ingredients for cooking and to try as we walked around. The meal was healthy and delicious! We now have a much better understanding of Goan menus and with the simple recipes and natural ingredients, we look forward to cooking our own Goan meal soon!
Boyoon is a great host who also provided a delicious (not spicy as I can't eat it) meal that both my friend and I very much liked. It was great talking to her and getting tips for restaurants in the cities she planned to visit. (The snack we received as gift was also very delicious. Thank you very much, Boyoon!)
Keiko was very nice and helpful. She really let us do the cooking and we enjoyed it very much. We learned all kind of things about the Japanese culture and food. Things that helped us understand Japan later on in our trip. We especially liked cooking Dashimaki Tamago!

Ethiopia, in the Horn of Africa, is a rugged, landlocked country split by the Great Rift Valley. With archaeological finds dating back more than 3 million years, it’s a place of ancient culture. Among its important sites are Lalibela with its rock-cut Christian churches from the 12th–13th centuries. Aksum is the ruins of an ancient city with obelisks, tombs, castles and Our Lady Mary of Zion church.
