Clear recommendation, with smear

We were alone in the course, so the cook and 2 guests. Unfortunately, this reduces the social component of a group cooking course. However, it would also have made it possible to respond to the individual guests' level of knowledge. Unfortunately that didn't happen. We unfortunately had no influence on what is cooked. But otherwise the course was great. Clear recommendation.

Fantastic experience, my husband and I loved it.

Great experience and enjoyed market visit and also the hands on cooking and of course the eating of the delicious food. The only thing I would suggest is that the group was too large. There were 20 people in our group but I think a maximum of 16 would be perfect. This posed a problem at the markets as we couldn't always hear our guide and then in the kitchen there were four benches with four workspaces on each and we had to squeeze another person on.
