We love Yves! He was so kind and gracious to our large family group, and educated us about some of the more traditional Catalonia dishes that we enjoyed.
Excellent experience. Farid was prompt in replying to emails, very kind and considerate. His apartment is lovely and we felt comfortable and welcome. The food was delicious with lots of opportunities to try different food. Farid speaks fluent English and we had many interesting conversations, was great to learn about his family. He had some excellent tips for places to visit and explore in the city.
My market tour and cooking class with Putu is one of the best travel experiences I have had.The food we made was fresh and delicious, I will go home with new recipes I am sure to repeat, but it was the experience of connecting with another family that made this such a special day. I highly recommend Putu's cooking class for keen foodies and people who would like to experience a truly authentic Balinese meal. It is easy to find a cooking class in Bali, but not so easy to find such a personal lesson far away from the usual tourist circuit.
Was a great conversation with Sheena and Kate - a lovely couple. Very delicious cooking. Could have stayed much longer...
Patrizia Cantini is an absolute Tuscan treasure and Traveling Spoon is one of the coolest destination activity companies to come along in a long time. Patrizia is a noted food and wine journalist, so her perspective and stories about Tuscan food, cooking and Tuscan life in general were fantastic. From tips about selecting the correct flour for homemade pasta to navigating us through an olive oil tasting, our time with Patrizia was the highlight of our time in Florence.
A most enjoyable evening hosted by very hospitable hosts Richard and Gillian [...] Our party of 8 thoroughly enjoyed an outstanding typical South African meal with superior local wines. Sadly due to the late hour the evening ended, but we left with the feeling that we had spent a fabulous time with new friends. A highly recommended experience that should not be missed.
Richenda and her husband Michael were very welcoming when we arrived and let us roam around their impressive gardens before serving us Guinness stew, mint and Pea soup, homemade bread, potatoes, carrots and broccoli. Everything was tasty and we really appreciated a home cooked meal after 10 days on the road. We ended up staying for three hours and would definitely recommend these extremely warm hearted hosts to all travelers. Definitely worth a trip out to Kilkenny/Ballyragget!
We spent a delightful few hours watching Alexander and Irina prepare an authentic meal and then sharing their unique food and warm company. We recommend this experience for anyone wanting to connect with real people.
Rossy and Emily were the best hosts! Very involved in the project, open and kind people. We had a great time cooking with them, but also chatting, dancing and learning about Dominican culture. :) It was amazing experience.
