    An authentic, local and delicious experience.
    I had an amazing experience with this local cooking experience. Edith was very welcoming and accomodating with a novice cook such as myself. She patiently taught me local and authentic Hong Kong dishes that I can now easily make. I can not wait to try to recreate these delicious meals at home! I can not recommend this experience enough.
    Thanks for joining me for a great cooking class! Edith - LCE

    Perfect birthday gift!
    Edith is a wonderful tour guide, cook and host. I learnt a lot from her and it was the best dim sum I ever made and had in Hong-Kong! She even prepared a chocolate cake for my birthday! I truly recommend the experience !! 😊 Thank you Edith 🙏
    Thank you for the great review and so grateful I got to celebrate your birthday together! Edith - LCE

    Best cooking class in Hong Kong with no doubt
    Hello everyone! I'm a French guy currently interning in Hong Kong, and last weekend I took part in this cooking class with a close friend. In a few words: it was exceptional. It was originally supposed to last three hours, but we ended up leaving after 5 hours! The course itself was very enriching and very interesting. Not only did I learn a lot about Chinese cuisine and gastronomy, but also about Hong Kong's eating habits and customs. I highly recommend selecting the option with the visit to the wet market, which allowed me (as a Westerner) to discover many typically Asian foods I did even know the existence of. And then, how could I not mention Edith? Over and above her deep love of steaming and her infinite knowledge of Chinese cuisine, she's genuinely a very interesting person, with lots to say and a great sense of humor. Honestly, go for it with your eyes closed: send her an e-mail, you won't regret it. Edith is not no 1 in Hong Kong for nothing: she deserves this rank more than anyone. Nathan
    Such a fantastic review for a fantastic cooking class together! Remember to drop by with Pierre for some more home-cooked meals during your internship if you get tired of the pre-cooked food boxes from work :)! - Edith - LCE

    Insightful and engaging cooking experience from start to finish!
    As a couple we had an amazing time with Edith! Her incredible knowledge made for a really insightful tour of the wet market. We also appreciated seeing the ingredients we sourced in the market being used in the cooking later on. Very interesting seeing Edith interacting with the local vendors and acquiring their seasonal produce. The cooking was very engaging and we received knowledge on the cooking techniques as well as applicable substitutes we could incorporate into our own cooking once we got home. Edith was incredibly generous with her time also accommodating any queries we had. The food was stunning and we were delighted to receive anything we didn't have space to finish in containers for later on that day! Incredible experience, thank you again Edith!
    I really appreciate your great review for me! Always a pleasure to spend time with people who love home cooking! Edith - LCE

    Above and Beyond
    Where to begin? My class with Edith is quickly becoming the highlight of an amazing trip to Hong Kong. From the start, Edith went above and beyond by agreeing to a dish that was very important to me that was not on her regular menu. She put extra hours of labor and research in before we even met, which was both unexpected and deeply appreciated. Thanks to her efforts, I feel more confident than ever that I'll be able to recreate it at home. Although that situation is unique and we planned it a few months in advance, it quicky became clear that Edith excells at adapting her class to the personalized needs of her students. From making sure everyone got to try vegetables they'd never seen before to trying medicinal teas for someone who asked about them, Edith has a clear and evident delight in teaching. She's also witty, talented, and a gracious host--what a wonderful way to spend a morning in Hong Kong! I reccomend Edith's class to anyone who wants to take all this delicious food home with them.
    Thank you for taking the time to write me this review. I am so glad that you are honing those cheung fun skills. Keep sending me those photos of them! Edith - LCE

    Excellent cooking class
    What an excellent way to experience Hong Kong cooking! Edith was so graciously flexible with our special request for a fish dish, and walked us through the wet market where stalls were butchering the fish in front of us. She then took us to a different market and explained all the different types of meats and vegetables, how to spot quality, and described different ways to cook and eat the produce. The dishes we made were all delicious, and Edith provided so many tips that we’ll be making all of these dishes when we get back home! She was very personable and eager to share her stories, which made the whole experience very intimate and comfortable. Highly recommend this curated experience for anyone interested in learning how people in Hong Kong actually cook and eat!!
    Thank you, Maureen!

    A fantastic & delicious cookery class!
    We had the pleasure of attending a cookery class with Edith in March 2024 and it was just great! First we visited a market together, where we shopped for food and learnt lots of details about specialities in Hong Kong. Then we prepared everything together and cooked various dumplings. Edith is a great person who approaches everything with a lot of heart and humour. It was a fantastic morning that made us want to cook the dumplings also at home :)

This whole experience was amazing. We were able to experience we have never had nor have access to where I am from. Edith gives you an authentic look into life in Hong Kong. She herself is a great host providing endless entertainment with her stories and anecdotes. She also made us some amazing Asian desserts to take home which were super delicious. I couldn’t recommend this experience enough.
