It felt like an evening together with friends. Furthermore Aki is a great cook and an excellent teacher and the food we cooked was so delicious. Not just Japanese food you know from the restaurants, but real Japanese home cooking, that I definitely will make again at home. I had a wonderful evening and an authentic experience and will certainly recommend it.
My partner and I enjoyed an excellent private cooking class with Emi and learnt some great Japanese home cooking recipes. If you enjoy cooking and Japanese food, this is a great class to take and you’ll bring home some skills to recreate the recipes.
The food was great and we had an opportunity to take a part of cooking..and very shortly you felt yourself like you met your old friends after while. The atmosphere was so cool that we didn’t even realise that the time was already over 10pm. All over that evening with Juan and Marina was among our very memorable experiences in Buenos Aires.
The cooking class with Emi was lovely and such a treat to experience while in Tokyo. We learned all about Japanese food traditions as well as cultural insights, like why rice is always served on the left. Emi is very sweet, easy to talk to and is very informative! We really enjoyed our cooking experience with her.
What a wonderful afternoon. Not only was the cooking experience enjoyable it was great to be able to spend time with an English speaker to understand local culture and customs. Our host and her friend made us very welcome and catered to our dietary requirements helping make it a very special experience!
Our family of 4 learned so much about the traditional Balinese way of life and food. We loved seeing their home, learning about their traditions, cooking with their wood fire stove, getting inspired by their nearly waste-free lifestyle and enjoying their gorgeous property. Definitely was a highlight from our trip to beautiful Bali!
Suzy and Bob could not have been more welcoming or friendly. They genuinely enjoy hosting people and are very open and sharing of their time. The cooking was fun. The food was amazing and plentiful. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in getting to know a local and experience a very authentic home cooked meal. Would definitely book again!
This was such an amazing experience! We observed the cooking from muddling spices, to steaming rice, making tempeh, and everything in-between. We then joined the family for dinner in a very nice open dining area. All of the food was excellent and the family was so kind. Certainly an experience I will never forget! I highly recommend this!
Our host went to a lot of trouble to prepare a beautiful and delicious lunch and was very patient with all of our questions. She let the children play outside in the snow after lunch and bought them a lovely decorated lollipop, which they loved. She took us to a nearby shrine which we really appreciated before taking us to the train station. We enjoyed the experience very much.
My husband and I enjoyed every moment of this market tour and class, from our shopping through our pasta lesson through dinner conversation. Cinzia is a great instructor and a lovely, warm host...I will add that if you cook and love cooking, it's really worth it to take a private class - you get the kind of hands-on experience and attention you simply cannot get in a group.
We had the absolute best time with Julieta and Daniel. These two long-time friends couldn't have been more gracious and hospitable. It really doesn't get much more authentic/local than cooking with these lovely people. If you're in Merida, even if for less than 24 hours like we were, I would highly recommend you take the time to cook with Daniel and Julieta! It was definitely a highlight of our week in the Yucatan.
I truly had a great experience with Michiyo and her family. They are very welcoming and I learned a lot in terms of Japanese culture and cuisine. I loved the Nikujaga and the best thing is I was able to replicate it at home :)
This was such an amazing experience! Wayan's husband picked us up from out resort in Ubud. When we arrived, we were given fresh coconuts with hand-made bamboo straws. We observed the cooking from muddling spices, to steaming rice, making tempeh, and everything in-between. All of the food was excellent and the family was so kind. Certainly an experience I will never forget! I highly recommend this!
