Meet Sara and Felix

An international young couple who love traveling, Felix and Sara are passionate about meeting people from around the world and sharing a bit of their insight in to London. Felix grew up in Paris and learned to cook from his mother, an actress, and his father; he moved to London in 2011 and works for a food startup connecting local producers with communities (be sure to ask him about the company he works for which is doing amazing work growing the local food movement across Europe!). Sara grew up in Valencia, Spain and studied management and digital business before moving to London. Sara and Felix both love jogging around London and stopping in to museums, as well as exploring outside of London on the weekends. Ask Sara and Felix about some of their favorite museums and running routes. And if you are traveling outside of England at all be sure to ask for their recommendations for things to do in Paris and Spain!

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

In-home meal: (1-4 guests) Join Felix and Sara, a young, fun couple living in central London for a home cooked French meal. Felix and Sara live in a small apartment just steps away from the London Eye - we highly recommend taking a little time to explore the South Bank and walk along the river with views of the London Eye and Big Ben before coming to their flat for a simple but delicious home-cooked French meal that Felix will prepare using recipes and techniques learned from his passion. You might enjoy duck confit brought in from France and served with fried potatoes, or savory crêpes with melted ham and cheese. You will eat together in their open living dining room area.

Languages spoken: English, French, Spanish, Catalan

FAQ

    You can cancel your experience 48 hours or more before your experience date and receive a full refund. To request a cancellation once you have made a booking simply log in and click the "Request Cancellation" link from the bottom of your booking. Your refund will be processed immediately (note it can take up to 10 business days for this refund to post to your credit card statement). Please note that for cancellations within 48 hours of your experience we unfortunately cannot offer a refund; this is because our hosts typically purchase food and begin their preparations up to 48 hours before the experience.

    Most of our hosts are able to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, including vegetarian and gluten free options. For vegetarian travelers, we have an icon on each host profile to indicate whether that host can also offer a fully vegetarian menu. There is a section in the booking form to note any allergies or dietary restrictions which will be sent directly to your host.

    If you have a question about an experience, create a reservation and include your note in the field "Write a note to your host". Once you request a booking you can continue to message your host directly to ask any specific questions. You can always cancel your booking and receive a full refund as long as you cancel 48 hours in advance.

    Your card will not be charged until your host accepts your booking. Typically hosts respond to bookings within 72 hours. In the event your host is unavailable on your selected date and your host rejects your booking your credit card will not be charged.

    Your host's detailed contact information, including their phone number, address, and direction notes, will all be provided immediately upon successful confirmation of your experience (after your hosts accepts your booking and your credit card is successfully processed). This information will be emailed to you to the email address you used to sign up, and will also be visible on your Traveling Spoon profile.

    All prices are noted per person prices unless otherwise specified. Transportation is typically charged on a per car basis, but otherwise all prices are per person. Children aged 5-11 are 50% off, and infants aged 0-4 are free.

    Some hosts offer alcohol as an optional add-on for travelers who are of legal drinking age. Pricing for alcohol is visible on the host profile page and includes one to two glasses of wine, beer or local alcohol.

    Some hosts offer transportation as an optional add-on for travelers. Typically this is round trip transportation with pick up and drop off at your hotel. Pricing is quoted per car. Specific instructions for transportation will be provided in your confirmation details when your booking is confirmed.

    Many of our hosts accommodate solo travelers. You can see if a host accepts solo travelers by looking at the traveler range found next to the experience descriptions on the host profile (indicated by the numbers in parentheses next to "In-home meal", "Cooking experience" and "Market visit").

    Your safety and security are our top priority. To ensure this, Traveling Spoon personally vets 100% of all hosts, including an in-person host visit, to ensure each host and experience meets our strict quality requirements.

    Hosts typically respond to booking inquiries within 72 hours. If for some reason you have not heard from your host or if you have any questions you can always contact us at reservations@travelingspoon.com.
