    Lucia is wonderful and, honestly, I think the cooking class in her home was the highlight of our trip to Mexico City. She has a beautiful home with an amazing garden (where we picked herbs to use in our meal and lime leaves to make tea). She's so knowledgeable about Mexican culture, cuisine, and history - and is a great teacher. I couldn't recommend her class more highly.

    Excellent. We had a lovely time with Shveta and her family. It was wonderful to be at a family home and engage in interesting conversations about Jaipur and India.

    What an absolutely wonderful experience!  Suzy and Bob were warm, inviting, and exceptional hosts.  The home was beautiful, the conversation was rich, and the cooking experience was a lot of fun.  If you want to really connect with the city and its people then cooking a meal and sharing it with individuals from the area is the way to go!

    What a wonderful experience, Putu's warmth hospitality and knowledge never waned in the 6 hours we spent with her and her family.  All answers explained, all cooking techniques and produce used are well transferable to home,  we already have a Balinese banquet to organise.  This should be a must do for anyone visiting Ubud / Bali.
