    Can't speak highly enough of the great experience preparing a meal in Dewa's lovely home. Dewa showed us the surrounding area and helped give us an understanding of the spiritual and traditional influences on his family's life in Bali. Plus the food itself was amazing - will definitely be trying some of the recipes again soon.

    Christina was incredibly knowledgeable about food in general and about spanakopita specifically. Even though my wife and I are both experienced cooks, she surprised us with a few great tips for keeping the phyllo dough crisp and manageable. Her instructions for rolling out the dough were so clear that our 12-year-old created a perfect version on his first try. The whole evening and dinner were very enjoyable and we would recommend the experience to anyone.

    Greg is a friendly and gracious host. And Oscar is a fabulous cook. He taught us a few delicious recipes which I look forward to replicating at home.

    Our experience was fantastic, we started at the market where we tried a bunch of fruits we hadn't seen before. From there we went to a couple shops and tried different cheeses. Afterwards we went to a coffee shop and tried some delicious coffee. Lastly we went back to the kitchen and helped prepare a dinner. They were super knowledge about the food we cooked and it was probably the best meal we have had in Colombia.

    Iris and Nonni were fantastic hosts. We chose to get an in-home meal with them the day we all arrived in Reykjavik. They were accommodating to food allergies, flexible with time, and most importantly absolutely lovely people! It was a great way to start our trip and get a flavor for the culture, places we should visit, local suggestions, etc. They were energetic, fun, and funny! Everyone had a great time, and I cannot recommend Iris and Nonni enough!
