Kanae speaks very good English and was very attentive to our questions and inquiries. She first showed us around the Nijo market, where we could buy typical products that we will need to reproduce the meals at home. Once at her lovely home we cooked together not less than 5 dishes plus an extra dessert! We loved talking to her about food and sharing our cultural backgrounds. We had a very great time with her and would be very happy to learn more from her another time.
I arranged this experience as a way to explore the flavours of Ethiopia and I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the opportunity to wander through the local market, and learn about local foods. Daniel and his family were warm and welcoming...The coffee ceremony was a wonderful end to the meal.
There is no way I am going to be able to describe a day like today and give it the justice it deserves. Was pleasantly surprised to find my hostess waiting for my arrival. It was magical the way we instantaneously hit it off...Hours passed before my body told me I had spent most of it happily sitting, eating and conversing.
Shalini and her family were so lovely with us that night. The whole cooking experience was amazing and to finalize we ate everything, sharing with this lovely family. Highly recommended, is the first time we take this kind of private class and must to say was much better than a group one.
Very interesting tour. Family history as well as full explanation of the balsamic process. Nice table of very tasty hors d'oeuvres using balsamic vinegar. Thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you!
We had a beautiful evening with Reyna and her friends and family. The vegan and non-vegans in our group all loved this experience. Heartfelt conversation and music enhanced the fantastic food. Do go, you’ll be glad you did!
It was just great to be hosted by Archana, her husband and her mother. I got a welcome with a coffee and different homemade traditional Indian snacks and after that we went to the market with Archana and her husband by car. I had a wonderful meal on a banana leave with a huge variety of dishes. I have to say a big thank you, it will always be remembered as a unique local experience!!
All in all, it was a most memorable experience. Gerardo and Sandra and family are the most warm and generous people. I would encourage folks to consider this experience. I would certainly visit with them again.
Putu and her family were amazing hosts. We particularly enjoyed being shown around her lovely Balinese house and garden. She was very knowledgeable not just about cooking but also about Balinese culture and history. The food was delicious and class was held very professionally - you can tell the process was well-thought through because we managed to cook so many dishes in a short span of time!
Let me just start by saying that our host Lucia was absolutely STELLAR. We arrived at Mercado San Angel for the tour and she was extremely knowledgeable of all the foods, but most importantly, the people working the stalls too. Lucia was very well-versed and answered everything we asked of her. If you're interested in learning more about Mexican food, its history, and the current scene, Lucia is the one to ask.
Luca and Marielle are not only gracious hosts, they are also very generous of their time, and care. Their beautiful home is welcoming and warm. Their conversations are interesting, informative and thoughtful. Let’s not forget the reason we were there in the first place, the FOOD. FABULOUS. We learned so much. Grazie Luca. Merci Marielle, for what may be a wonderful new friendship.
What fun! After a few minutes we felt like we were in a relatives home. Sundari made us feel welcome and comfortable in her home. From the wonderful conversation to the demonstration of multiple South Indian dishes to the actual participation in the cooking, everything was outstanding. This experience is a MUST.
