    Online cooking with Shveta was the perfect way to connect our extended family remotely during covid-19! We had nine food-loving cousins in the class from San Francisco to Seattle and New York. Ages from 39 to 5 were all on the call and able to follow along with Shveta! ...we will be taking more Traveling Spoon classes.

    ...Reshma provided easy to follow instructions, provided insights into the ingredients and flavors and we made a delicious meal! Really fun way to pull together family members living all over right now. Even my 5-year-old nephew was engaged!

    Gabriela’s cooking class was fantastic! It was the perfect birthday gift and the food turned out great! Gabriela was enthusiastic and helpful and made sure to answer all of our questions. We had a great experience and would definitely recommend her classes!

    We scheduled the Thai cooking class with Pia as a "Mom's Night In" event for our local group and we had such a fun time! Great communication about what we needed to prepare prior to the virtual cooking class, and we loved that we could ask questions, as well as communicate with each other, during the class...Highly recommend Traveling Spoon!

    Reshma is a wonderful cook - she made the process of preparing butter chicken and naan easy to follow. We had several family members online - it was a great way to get together during Covid 19! Lots of fun - I'd highly recommend her class

    This class is for anyone appreciating fine pastries. It was very easy to follow the class. The hosts were not only great chefs, but also willing to share stories about their country, which is even more important in these times of travel restrictions. Thank you.

    Our afternoon with Sofía was very fun - she expertly guided us through the preparation of delicious tacos! It was wonderful to be able to have a taste of Mexico during this time when we can’t travel.

    We made khinkalis with Tina and it was a delightful experience! We made both vegetarian and chicken version, both unique flavors and so good. Tina was very engaging, conversational and we really felt like part of her family. She was patient with us as we were a bit slower on rolling out the dough and walked us through the process. We had such a great time!!
