Unlike many of the reviews here, we took the three-hour evening class, which does not involve a trip to the market. It was wonderful. We received enough guidance to avoid making complete fools of ourselves, but were allowed enough participation to give the illusion that...More

No but the morning class meets at the Mingalar Market and you get transported back to the cooking school.

Classes are held every day...you don't need to make a reservation, just show up at the meeting spot (in front of the bank near the market). I believe the class was from 9:00 - 14:00. Enjoy! What a great experience!
