Shalini and her family were so lovely with us that night. The whole cooking experience was amazing and to finalize we ate everything, sharing with this lovely family. Highly recommended, is the first time we take this kind of private class and must to say was much better than a group one.
Very interesting tour. Family history as well as full explanation of the balsamic process. Nice table of very tasty hors d'oeuvres using balsamic vinegar. Thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you!
We had a beautiful evening with Reyna and her friends and family. The vegan and non-vegans in our group all loved this experience. Heartfelt conversation and music enhanced the fantastic food. Do go, you’ll be glad you did!
It was just great to be hosted by Archana, her husband and her mother. I got a welcome with a coffee and different homemade traditional Indian snacks and after that we went to the market with Archana and her husband by car. I had a wonderful meal on a banana leave with a huge variety of dishes. I have to say a big thank you, it will always be remembered as a unique local experience!!
All in all, it was a most memorable experience. Gerardo and Sandra and family are the most warm and generous people. I would encourage folks to consider this experience. I would certainly visit with them again.
Putu and her family were amazing hosts. We particularly enjoyed being shown around her lovely Balinese house and garden. She was very knowledgeable not just about cooking but also about Balinese culture and history. The food was delicious and class was held very professionally - you can tell the process was well-thought through because we managed to cook so many dishes in a short span of time!
Let me just start by saying that our host Lucia was absolutely STELLAR. We arrived at Mercado San Angel for the tour and she was extremely knowledgeable of all the foods, but most importantly, the people working the stalls too. Lucia was very well-versed and answered everything we asked of her. If you're interested in learning more about Mexican food, its history, and the current scene, Lucia is the one to ask.
What fun! After a few minutes we felt like we were in a relatives home. Sundari made us feel welcome and comfortable in her home. From the wonderful conversation to the demonstration of multiple South Indian dishes to the actual participation in the cooking, everything was outstanding. This experience is a MUST.
Luca and Marielle are not only gracious hosts, they are also very generous of their time, and care. Their beautiful home is welcoming and warm. Their conversations are interesting, informative and thoughtful. Let’s not forget the reason we were there in the first place, the FOOD. FABULOUS. We learned so much. Grazie Luca. Merci Marielle, for what may be a wonderful new friendship.
Our family of 7 had a wonderful market and cooking afternoon and evening with Hang. From the minute we met Hang and her mom they were so hospitable and informative. They answered any questions we had and gave us great insight into Vietnamese food from shopping for the food to preparing it. The ultimate meal was delicious and we also really appreciated Hang’s humor and kindness. AWESOME experience!
We had a great time walking around the market and getting to know the culture of Spanish food shopping. We cooked the paella from scratch and had a great time chatting, cooking and tasting :) We can totally recommend this also for kids, our 11 and 15 year old had a great time and participated in cutting and cooking.
This experience far exceeded my expectations! Aoy is vivacious and full of energy. With her warm, engaging personality, I felt like I already knew her. The setting of her restaurant is a tropical oasis on the river. Oh yeah...and the food was amazing. Aoy pours her heart into all she does - you will love her!!
We had an authentic Hanoian meal at Hang's place today. Her mom is a fabulous cook and Hang and her family were such warm people to have met. It was great to get a closer look and know more about the dishes we'd been tasting during our trip to Vietnam. Very glad we booked this experience.
It was our last night in Argentina, and we couldn't go out without knowing how they (Argentinians :)) prepare it! Upon arriving we were welcomed with open arms and asked to feel at home. And we really feel like with friends, enjoying cooking and company. We left Argentina with good taste, good smell and hugs from friends.
This was a spectacular cooking class. We have attended cooking classes in many countries, but this was the best. My expectations were high, but she exceeded them! Mohara Dole is such a warm person and it started with us learning about the fruits and herbs in the garden in her home and her life story. We loved eating the Ambarella fruit from her tree and that resulted in it being added as a cooking item to the menu.
