Renata and Alex could not have been better hosts! Great food, great conversation! One of our top highlights on our trip to Puebla.
We were welcomed into Dewa’s home and felt completely at ease. Dewa provided us with great insight into the culture of family life in Bali and the Hindu faith. Everything Dewa, his assistants and my husband and I prepared was delicious. By evenings’ end we knew we had experienced a truly special occasion, one of the most memorable from all our travels over many years.
Fantastic experience! A very friendly host who went out of her way to make our visit very interesting. She even changed the day of our visit because our flight was delayed.
Keiko is a great host, the food was very good (we opted for cooking with her which was very fun and we highly recommend) and she is a lovely person and an interesting converser. We took a peek of the Japanese day-to-day and Keiko was very patient to explain a lot of thing to us about japanese living.
Lunch with Keiko was one of our favorite things we did in our whole trip to Japan. She was an amazing host. The food was great but even better was the time we got to spend with her learning about the food, about the culture and about her experiences. My sister and I really felt so lucky to get to have this experience and have already recommended it to all of our friends traveling to the area!
Maia was a fantastic host. We enjoyed every aspect of the experience….we cooked and talked like old friends right from the beginning! It was wonderful to sit down at the table with her family and eat Vietnamese food as locals would. We learned a lot more than just cooking as we shared information about our cultures. We left as friends. A fantastic experience.
Great experience. Host was very friendly hospital and capable. The food course was very instructive and we'll surely continue the experience at home.
As a travel professional, I was so impressed with the experience. My Traveling Spoon afternoon was my favorite day of the whole trip. We had fun, we laughed, and we learned to cook interesting dishes. More importantly, we got to spend time and make a connection with a really special woman, and we felt so honored to be welcomed into their home.
This was one of the best parts of our two week adventure in Japan, and our first time ever using Traveling Spoon. Satomi gave us a tour of Tsukiji Fish Market, including the back-end where the wholesaling occurs. The cooking & eating were great. I learned how to use Japanese utensils and how to make tomagoyaki. She was very hospitable, personal, and an excellent cook!
We loved our time with our hosts! It was a true treat! I would recommend it to anyone.
Excellent experience! Fun and delicious.
We had a wonderful time with Putu, Wayan and Kadek, learning about Balinese traditions and culture, the market, the veggies and spices grown in Putu's garden, and of course how to cook the most scrumptious food! Everyone was so warm and welcoming and Putu even baked a delicious surprise birthday banana cake for Ruben! A must if you're visiting Bali!
I love Edwina…she's vivacious, witty, and an amazing teacher. It was a complete hands-on experience that allowed us to use all of our senses. Everyone who loves food, but is afraid to enter the kitchen, needs to learn with Edwina. Actually, everyone should just cook with Edwina.
But more important than the wonderful meal and cooking experience was to spend time with a food obsessed Florentine couple in their home, laughing together late until the scheduled taxi service had to drag us away, and for us to share wide smiles the entire ride back to the hotel. Stefano is the kind of guy that makes you wish you spoke better Italian, because you know you'd love to share a limoncello or grappa (or two) with him after dinner, trading stories.
