I wanted to thank you again - my boyfriend and I were really happy to cook with you. It was one of our favorite experiences in Japan! In Lausanne there is a really good Japanese shop where I could find the basic ingredients, some gyoza pasta and nira. I tried to cook some gyozas as your recipe but with chicken. It was absolutely delicious!
Thank you Laura for a Fabulous time today. Laura was a wonderful host, a lot of fun, and I learned a lot. Everything we made was delicious. Best experience of my whole vacation!
You have to eat the bean stew," Amal's father Amin told me. "After all, they are picked from what is YOUR garden now," he said. After picking me up in Beirut, driving up in the hills above the city, showing me around the wonderful vegetable garden, Amal and her mother showed me how to make the kibbeh paste, how to hollow out the ball of paste...Most of all, I will always remember the generosity and warmth of the people, that from now on is my new Aramoun family!
On my first day in Tbilisi, I had an amazing cooking experience and introduction to Georgian cuisine. The food was prepared with love and there was plenty of food. I enjoyed spending time with Teona and her siblings in their beautiful charming kitchen. I highly recommend this experience.
This was one of our favorite activities of our whole trip to Greece! My mom is of Greek heritage and cooks lots of Greek food at home, but Fotini took time ahead of our visit to put lots of thought into creating a very unique menu that would show us more rare types of Greek recipes from the islands, as well as educate us about the history of Greek cuisine. Overall it was an experience that will last a lifetime and we would love to return the favor if Fotini ever visits Chicago!
Fantastic hospitality, conversation and food! We had a very wonderful market tour and home-cooking/eating experience with Kanae-san. She is a super hospitable hostess, a very engaging conversationalist/guide to modern Japan, and an excellent cook. We had a really great experience with her and encourage others to contact her and enjoy the same wonderful time we had!
The best thing we did in Bologna! Spending an evening with Giovanna and her family well exceeded our expectations and was by far the most amazing part of our trip. She was so warm, so friendly, so knowledgeable about the history of the city and the cuisine and her two daughters who cooked with us were just the coolest people. We made an unforgettable meal, talked about food, politics, art, sports, culture and more food for the better part of 4 hours.
The four of us thoroughly enjoyed our day with Maria who is knowledgeable, an experienced cook, a great teacher and a fascinating person. We foraged and cooked and ate and talked and learnt and discussed and laughed and shared. This is a delightful experience on so many levels. If you're considering booking this experience, consider no longer, just do it. There are not enough words to describe this extraordinary woman and her wonderfully wholistic approach to life. Enjoy!
We had a beautiful dinner including appetizers and drinks, borsht, duck with potatoes and salad, and 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.
