We had a private cooking lesson at the House of Cooking in Cairo. We learned to make typical Egyptian dishes and had fun doing it. The mother and daughter team who presented the class were sweet and we learned a lot. It was a fun way to spend and afternoon and we enjoyed eating what we had prepared.

They welcomed us and... More

I attended a Thai cooking class with Chef Nahed and her daughter Mona and enjoyed it a lot. Other than it being very beneficial with Chef Nahed giving us loads of cooking tips every step of the way, the food also tasted great and the atmosphere was fun and energetic while being professionally taught. We learned everything from the type... More
