Edith is really friendly, knowledgeable and truly walk the talk.We have such wonderful experience with her from the start at the ferry ride, thru the wet market tour and hands on at her home. Yes I will definitely recommend my frens to have this experience beyond the shopping and sightseeing in HKG. Thanks so very much Edith with love from Singapore!

we had a great morning with Edith. Started off by exploring the local market and finding out more about the local food and shopping habits. We then went back to her flat and cooked a delicious meal. Thank you Edith for a great morning, we thoroughly enjoyed it.

This was a highlight of my trip. It was great to get a chance to travel a bit further from where we were staying in Central, and hearing more about the island and its residents from a local was an experience you won't get from any of the more touristy attractions. Edith was a wonderful host, and her tour of the local market was informative and super interesting - we had seen and wandered through several markets earlier in our trip, but it was much better with a local guide who was able to add more context and pick out delicious things to try. The actual cooking lesson was great, Edith had everything set up so it was easy and fun, but we still felt like we were learning something. She was especially accommodating for our vegetarian friends, (I'd still say you're missing out though if you don't get a chance to try the pork dumplings...) If you are looking for a unique HK experience I'd highly recommend this.

I'm not really into cooking but I'm a traveller, an anthropology major and someone who's curious about food culture. Edith's class is not just about cooking dumplings but also includes a tour of the wet market and insights on Hong Kong's culture. It's perfect actually for new expats or those who need a quick study of Hong Kong.
