Wow - This experience was my highlight of Medellin. If you like fresh, delicious local cuisine prepared by a host who is intelligent, funny and can explain both the food and the culture - I can't recommend this experience enough. It was amazing.
Grainne was an amazing guide to spend learning about cheese making, goat rearing and life. The St Tolas cheeses were delicious - each one in the sampling was better than the next. Though if I started in reverse order would say the same. You will love this tour and high level discourse about the region. And the 30+ baby goats were on their best behavior.
Wonderful time with Cathleen and her daughter Karen. Real Irish people! The chocolate beef stew was sensational.
We want to thank Kanae for being an awesome host. She made our local cooking experience in Sapporo enjoyable. All of the dishes we made were very delicious and simple to make! She even provided us with the recipes which we will definitely be using! Kanae was also very personable and easy to talk to. Her English is excellent!
The whole experience was very enjoyable. We decided the menu over a welcome coffee and introductory chat. A nonstop conversation, first in the kitchen and later over the dinner, about food, customs, people, and so on. We learnt a lot of dishes, prepared by Tania, her mother and us alike.
It was a wonderful culinary experience with Maria. Above and beyond attending a "cooking class". Maria was knowledgable about the food and the nutritional value of it. Created a new perspective for cooking for me.
My daughter and I had a wonderful time with Fusina touring her local market, learning about the products, sustainability, and sourcing of local food. We felt welcomed and relaxed and enjoyed the pancake making and conversation! It was a pleasure to be welcomed into her home and learn about Dutch culture.
Midori was so welcoming and kind to us during our visit. Her warmth made the experience so much fun and we learned a lot about Japanese cooking. All of the dishes we created were delicious. Midori speaks beautiful English and talked us through some of the other plans for our trip and even was able to make a few calls for us to help us overcome a language barrier. Thank you to Midori for a wonderful memory!
