    Our class with Cinzia was wonderful... Cinzia gave us useful insights and methods on pasta making and explained why different approaches have different results. I've made pasta for a few years now on my own, and this definitely increased my skill level...

    Emi was a fantastic host... I have always had trouble making dumplings... but Emi's way worked for me and my gyoza looked professional! It was an enjoyable class and I highly recommend it! A great cultural and culinary experience from your own kitchen.

    Pea's class was fantastic. The pad thai and papaya salad turned out better than I ever could have hoped. She was kind and generous and really fun to work with. The three of us loved the class!

    ...Daniel and his wife Tigist are amazing. They made our class easy and fun and made us feel very welcome and capable. We had the perfect mix of chatting and getting to know each other with the cooking guidance. I can't wait to visit and do an in-person class when we can travel.

    Was a great fun evening and a way to connect virtually with my colleagues. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for something a bit different to do. Thank you Gabriela for making it fun and tasty!

    Shalini was an awesome host for our class on Samosas. She was super helpful, understanding, and patient. The Samosas were excellent and we enjoyed our first Traveling Spoon experience.

    Fabio and Anarella had a great set up in their kitchen so we could clearly see them and the food. They did a great job engaging us as if we were there in person. It was a fun experience...

    ...Casto was great and walked me through the entire process. He is an excellent teacher, and was very patient... I have recommended his class to friends already, and highly encourage people to take any class he offers.

    Daniel and Tigist were friendly, patient, and generous, and we thoroughly enjoyed the conversation in addition to the food. When we sat down to dinner (about midnight our time due to the time difference), it was absolutely DELICIOUS! Absolutely worth staying up late for a midnight dinner. Definitely a rare highlight of a very weird year.
