Fabienne is charming, interesting and delightful. Felt like I was having dinner with an old friend. The green salad with foie gras and marinated fresh peaches was different and delicious. She served my favorite French dish blanquette de veau with rice and sautéed mushroom - outstanding. Of course the tarte tatin was perfect. I will do it again and will recommend it to anyone who is going to be in Paris.
If you’re a foodie or just want to have an authentic and unforgettable experience you simply must do this. From the minute I was picked up at my b&b to being dropped back, I couldn’t quite believe how lucky I was to spend an evening with such lovely people. It was a wonderful evening with wonderful people and wonderful tastes - the highlight of my first trip to Lebanon and easily one of the best experiences I've ever had on my travels.
Chiara made an excellent feast for us at her home and it surpassed our expectations! The food was amazing, but the experience you are getting is all about the location itself and Chiara's infectious personality. My only regret is not being able to stay there for longer.
Teo and her mom were amazing hostesses! I felt like I was walking into a dear friend's home when I arrived. We made a few traditional dishes together, all while discussing culture and sharing personal experiences. Best of all, you will leave Teo's home truly feeling like part of the family!
A most interesting family visit with the benefit of cooking together and sharing the experience of a family meal. A worldly experience.
We had a great time with Shalini and her family. To reiterate what others have said: this is more than just a cooking lesson. By touring the family house and lots of interesting conversations you will get a real insight into the daily lives of this lovely family. We had a really fun time and learnt a lot. Very highly recommended! Thanks a lot!
My wife and I had a paella class with Josh in Barcelona on May 7 and he was terrific. We did a tour of the local market then went to his studio for the class. We learned to make sangria which was the best we ever tasted and then a wonderful seafood paella. Highly recommend Josh!!
We had so much fun shopping and getting all of our long-festering questions answered about Morocco and Moroccan culture. The food was fun to prepare and delicious! I only wish I'd done this tour at the beginning of my stay - it would've been so helpful in my transition to life here in Casablanca.
Our visit to the home of Fabio and Christiane exceeded all of our expectations. The meal was absolutely delicious ( our best in Florence ) and served with a wonderful local wine while seated next to a cozy open fire. Florence is a beautiful city but to really appreciate Tuscan life and the people there ( not to mention a meal you won’t forget ) we would highly recommend this dining experience arranged through the Traveling Spoon.
Erna is such a lovely, interesting and funny woman we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon with her. The food she prepares with you is with delicious, fresh and local ingredients. She incorporates different flavours we got to try a few new things we hadn't tried before! She went out of her way to make us feel welcome and we even got to visit a local winery on her recommendation!
What a delight meeting Chamsi and her family! We were picked up at our hotel right on time, and proceeded to the market. Cooking with Chamsi and learning about Moroccan culture was most enjoyable. Her young son Sami was also fun. And the food! You will not go wrong with this cooking experience!
Maria took us into her home, showed us unparalleled hospitality, involved us in the ingredient preparation and cooking process, and provided a spectacular presentation of the prepared food. We would both repeat the experience with Maria in a heart-beat, if the occasion presented itself. The class was a true joy.
It was warm and special as Carol shows true passion in her cooking. The food was unpretentious and wholesome Chilean meals. As a chef, you’d always want to eat this 5 star home cooked meal!
