Mariana and Geraldine were fantastic hosts! We started off with a market tour…and purchased some fruit we had never had before. We walked past a magazine stand of food magazines and most of the photos on the covers were styled by Mariana and Geraldine - very cool to hear about their experience as food stylists and how important healthy, good food is to both of them. We then went back to their beautiful home, prepared a delicious salsa, home-made tortillas and made quesadillas and sopas with 3 different fillings; each very unique. Dinner was eaten outside in the back garden; we chatted about food, culture, and Mariana and Geraldine showed us their award-winning cookbook!
Whether it’s your first time eating or cooking Japanese food or you have some prior experience, we’d highly recommend taking a class with Satoru. He is very talented, thoughtful, and observant. Non-judgmental, positive and encouraging. The food was delicious; we had a great time. Oishi!
What fun to be able to go to the fish market with a local to buy our food, then to be in a home in Morocco to actually learn how to cook Moroccan food. Chamsi was a wonderful host and a great cook. She explained all the spices used well and gave us cultural information to help us understand the cooking we did. Overall a great day!
Rafa and his cousin, Melania, were wonderful to meet. I had a very good time walking with them to the nearby market, trying some local food and fruits while talking about Mexican cuisine. Back at the apartment, I had a great time learning to make some local dishes. Rafa did an excellent job walking through things as we were preparing them.
What a stellar experience! Ismael started off with an incredible tour of the local market that only someone truly connected with all the vendors could provide and then took us back to his home. Everything we made was delicious...Ismael spoke great English and shared his love of Mexican food and culture with us. This experience was easily one of the highlights of our time in Mexico City.
Fotini was an absolutely wonderful host and the food was excellent!
Midori was an amazing host - very inviting and incredibly helpful. She gave us lots of tips and secrets to Japanese cooking. She also gave us lots of advice about Kyoto helping us make the most of our time. We have taken away lots of treasured memories (as well as some great recipes)!
This was SUCH a fantastic experience! Dewa and his family welcomed me into their home and we cooked the most delicious food I've ever eaten in my life. I felt truly immersed in the culture and learned so much about it beyond what I learned about cooking. Dewa was fantastic and I highly recommend him!
The entire experience was amazing. David cooked one of the best meals that I have had in a long time. Just when I thought that the meal could not get any better, he would bring out another dish to prove me wrong. But what really made the experience exceptional was David and family. It really made the experience an authentic local one because of his family's long history in Penang. They made me and my wife feel right at home.
Chef George was both knowledgeable and passionate not only about Greek cuisine, but Greek culture as well. It was one of the highlights of our trip.
April was wonderful. We slept through our alarm because of jetlag which made us 2 hours late to dinner, but we called and she had us over anyways. She was nice and the food was amazing!
