Meet Shelly

An art lover who enjoys painting and music, Shelly has always loved food and cooking. Originally born in the northeast of England but raised in the Midlands, Shelly now lives in Walthamstow, a London neighborhood at the end of the Victoria Line that has its own village with restaurants and a couple of breweries, and is dotted with galleries. Shelly works for the local government in youth services and is currently pursuing a diploma in counseling. Shelly loves all things art and music, so be sure to ask for her recommendations on galleries, museums or local concerts to visit while you’re in town - she is a big fan of the Tate Modern and other venues along the Southbank.

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 Shelly for a meal in her cozy home filled with her artistic creations. Shelly loves cooking international cuisine and recreating her favorite dishes she has tasted abroad. Your meal might include Moroccan lamb tagine, created in the tagine she brought back from her Morocco travels, chili prawn pasta, or chicken with tomatoes and capers. Shelly also makes the most delicious creative salads that you will enjoy with your main, like her orange, olive and red onion salad with cumin. For dessert enjoy a Portugese custard tart or baked figs in an orange mascarpone cream and a selection of tea or coffee.

Notes: Please note there is one flight of stairs you will need to climb. Shelly lives in a one-bedroom flat and you will eat in Shelly’s dining and living room; you will be joined by Shelly's boyfriend when he is home.

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.

    Once you request a booking you can message your host directly to ask any specific questions. Your messages will be emailed directly to the host and any responses will be forwarded to your email and can also be seen on the Traveling Spoon website.

    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 as per person prices unless otherwise specified (typically transportation is charged on a per car basis, but otherwise all prices are per person).

    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.
