My wife bought this for me as a surprise birthday present. This was an original innovative and highly motivational experience in the presence of a true expert. It was wonderful not to be in ‘a class’ but just Simon, my wife and I, plus brief encounters with Simon’s equally personable wife, because after all we were in their home. I cannot recommend this experience and value for money highly enough. Thank you, Simon!
If you want a customized, unique cooking experience, book with Aoy. We told them that we didn't want to cook typical dishes like pad thai so they customized the class for us and had us make pomelo salad since pomelo was in season. We also made green curry from scratch then used that leftover curry paste to make fried rice and marinated chicken skewers. Delicious and so full of flavor! We highly highly recommend this experience.
I loved everything about this experience with her. It was also great to hear her family’s story while we were on the way to the market. So kind and charming Isi is!!! I recommend everyone coming to Manila experience her wonderful cooking class in order to know more about the local culture which you can never have with normal sight seeing.
My partner and I took Dewa's class and it was one of the most memorable things we did during our time in Bali. Dewa was so incredible as a host, giving us a tour of his garden and rice patty and sharing with us the knowledge and history of his land and his people. He speaks incredible English and is so considerate and kind. His home is lovely, and his kitchen is very traditional. The food we made was of the best that we ate in Bali.
Whether this is your first visit to Puerto Vallarta or your tenth, spending a few hours with Chef Manu will delight and inspire you. A professional chef with impeccable technique, creativity and a deep knowledge of Mexican traditions, Manu responded to our request for contemporary seafood dishes with a menu of two different ceviches, a simple octopus preparation and fantastic shrimp enchiladas. Going to the market with him was an education. His English is native-speaker level. A personal experience well worth the time and expense.
It was such a nice experience!! Anna and her mom were so kind, sincere and friendly. I could have a look and get an explanation about making dumplings with various ingredients and sauce. She also gave me a recipe on e-mail. It was a perfect time. I highly recommend this experience if you have interest in cooking healthy and traditional Chinese food!
Our Traveling Spoon experience was a highlight of the trip. Juan and Marina are remarkable at what they do and truly give the guests more than the standard dinner. My wife is wanting to make empanadas for Thanksgiving now, because of how inspiring the experience was. The knowledge they bring to the ‘table” mixed with their own experiences makes for something very special.
We had a beautiful dinner including appetizers and drinks, borsh, duck with potatoes and salad, Tiramisu for dessert. It was fun to spend the evening with Lili, Patrick, and Natasha. We would strongly recommend having dinner with them when you are in Dublin or Skerries.
