Amazing experience. We had an amazing time. Manu is a super guy. He took us to the market and explained how to buy fresh fish and produce. We learned two recipes. Food was amazing. This a once in a lifetime experience.
Highly recommended activity. This cooking class was the highlight of my trip to Bali. The food we cooked was delicious. Putu taught the class. She's friendly, welcoming and gave good instructions. I liked that Putu didn't just teach us how to cook the meals but she also showed us her garden, her home, and taught us about Balinese customs.
Wonderful, fun experience. Alex & his wife Alejandra were so gracious...Their joy, laughter & fun spirits during our visit was contagious. Alex is a teacher, but he loves to cook. Alejandra is a tour guide. The combination is a recipe for a wonderful time. Oh, and the food was delicious too! Highly recommend!
It was a very good presentation and everything he showed us and told us was extremely interesting. Then he recommended three examples of usage of Balsamico. All of them tasted great. They also have cookbook in English as well as Q code shows us the cooking book. We really appreciate the CEO to be very kind for us and answering all the questions as well as pick up at the station.
Authentic, real, beautiful. This was an incredible experience this family is lovely. I did two cooking classes in my time in Ubud. One I raved because it was upscale and interesting to learn high level and gourmet Bali cuisine. This was raw, personal, authentic and accessible. You’ll embrace this family too. Start your journey here.
Great food and conversation. We were new to Bengali food so Bibi, our hostess asked us a few questions about our preferred level of spiciness, and our likes and dislikes. Everything was delicious! You could taste the different flavors and each course blended into the next seamlessly. I would recommend this experience not only for the food, but for the conversation, and recommendations that Bibi and her husband can provide. Thanks for everything!
My sweet memory in Coimbatore. Jaswant and his family welcomed us at their home. We visited the local fish market and then went shopping at the supermarket. We watched while his wife, daughter and house keeper were cooking in the kitchen...Coconut pudding was also the best ever eaten in South India! We had a great time with Jaswant’s family. It was a great day. I want to go to Coimbatore again someday!
Pure vegan delight. We arrived at Reyna's lovely home in a very plush suburb of Mumbai and were immediately offered a refreshing healthy drink. Conversation with Reyna and her friends was captivating and so we took a while getting to the dinner table. Once there though, the food was delicious. A range of traditional vegan local dishes and dessert were served alongside more interesting conversation.
The integrity of this company is appreciated. I appreciate Traveling Spoon's willingness to be flexible about their cancellation policy. Particularly since their business must be suffering during this worldwide pandemic. We look forward to traveling in the future and will definitely book with Traveling Spoon
A home cooked meal away from home. I wish I could give this 10 stars. It is simply a must-do. If you like your journey to have authenticity, look no further. There is nothing more authentic than being lovingly accepted into a family's home to share in preparing and eating a meal. This family is lovely, their why is beautiful. Do not pass this opportunity by.
Fun and tasty. Very happy that I booked this tour. Both the cooking lesson and market tour were great. Our trip to local farmer’s market was my favorite part. After an excellent cooking lesson where I got to help and received step-by-step instructions, we shared a very nice meal together in their dining room. At the end of this, I can safely say I left satisfied and absolutely full to the brim! Very nice people. Highly recommended.
Wonderful evening with Putu. I spent the evening with Putu learning how to cook a traditional meal. It was one of the best experiences of our time in Ubud. She was patient and kind. I would 100% recommend this experience to anyone.
Well worth it! Manuel was fantastic, took time to teach and gave cooking tips that I will definitely use. We had ceviche made with mahi mahi, cheese enchiladas, and octopus in a chili garlic sauce. Everything was delicious! I am looking forward to attempting to replicate the dishes.
This is a must do on any trip to the Philippines! Really nice to connect with the locals over a meal, relax in their company, enjoy the culture, enjoy the food, nice drink and be part of their family for the night. You cannot go wrong with this - give it a try! I will come back here again and again and again it is just very relaxing and great fun.
We had the absolute best time at Daniela’s apartment. She and her mom are the loveliest people. The food was excellent and we sat with Daniela and her mom for hours, learning about their culture and talking to them about ours. It felt like we’d known them for years. It was our favorite meal of our whole trip. If you’re considering doing Traveling Spoon in Medellin, you MUST book with Daniela!!
Loved every minute! The last days of our holiday were spent in Casablanca. With the help of Chamsi we had the opportunity to learn how to shop and cook like a Moroccan!. It was a fun day spent preparing delicious food purchased that morning from the market and local bakery. Chamsi welcomed us into her beautiful home to cook and eat the delicious results! It was so much fun!!! Thank you Chamsi for making it one of the highlights of our trip!
Some people are simply the best. Best teacher ever, making everything look so simple. Thanks Christina!!!
I was very impressed by Sofia’s knowledge of Yucatan cuisine. I asked Sofia if we could make tamales and although she informed me it wasn’t often travellers requested this, she managed to fulfill my request. I didn’t realise how long tamales took to make (we took 5 hours + eating time!) so I am very appreciative of Sofia’s persistence for this. It was just us two as I was a solo traveller. We also made guacamole, several salsas, not one but 3 types of tamales + dessert.
We had such a lovely time with Si and his family, cooking 5 delicious dishes. It was fun to go with the family to the local market to pick out all of the ingredients, while they educated us on local produce and meats. Back at their lovely home, cooking in the outdoor patio kitchen over wood fire was a real authentic experience
