    This was a great experience. The tour through the markets was informative and fun, we were free to ask questions about unique and different ingredients. It was a great way to learn about different food and how they should be cooked.
    The class its self was a lot of fun and the food that we made was local cuisine. Our hosts were informative and chatty, making us feel at ease and very comfortable. I loved the dishes we made and ate a lot. A great experience
