We loved our local cooking experience with Edith! It began with a gorgeous egg tart, a ferry ride, and a wet market tour with Edith’s helpful cultural annotations. Then we got down to business, making and eating three delightful dishes with friendly folks from around the world.

Edith herself is pretty wonderful, and I think this is a great cooking class because of a couple reasons - first, her pacing is spot on, and this is a hands-on class so that’s not the easiest to achieve. Second, the dishes are replicable. We’ve been at home in Canada and have had perfect success making all three dishes. Yes, even the dumplings!

Pretty much the greatest souvenir one can take back to one’s own country is the ability to make the cuisine found on one’s travels. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful wet market visit and cooking class with Edith. She was very responsive before hand and graciously adjusted the experience to fit our needs with our 7 year old traveler. She was kind, patient and full of knowledge! We tasted fruit at the market and learned cooking kid friendly recipes. Everything was delicious!

I thoroughly recommend Edith’s market tour and cooking experience in her own homely flat. I had so much fun! I went alone but was happy to make friends with a young German couple who were also on the tour. Together with Edith, we all got along very well and laughed and chatted as we explored and later cooked, while the green tea flowed. Edith had everything ready and kindly took note of my preference to have chicken instead of pork. The cooking part was hands-on in terms of rolling the dimsum, chopping and preparing, as well as stirring at the wok. Edith explained all the steps along the way. There was much chatter and it felt like being with good friends one had known for a while, instead of strangers! The meeting point was easy to access, and the tour even included a short trip across to Aberdeen on a ferry and a bus trip from the market back to Edith’s home. I had taken a ‘tupperware’ container with me and was able to bring leftovers back to our hotel - Edith prepares generous quantities, and is happy for us to take our freshly cooked fare (what we couldn’t finish for lunch!) home with us. Don’t hesitate - book this tour; you’ll love it!

I’ve done the odd holiday cooking class before in other countries. So I had a fair idea of what i was getting in to.

Edith meets you at an underground station, where you’re greeted with a Portuguese style egg tart before catching a quaint ferry across to Aberdeen.

From there Edith takes you on a tour of the Aberdeen Wet Market. You’ll taste a few local delicacies (in particular pleasant fruits and bbq pork).

Once the market portion is over its back to Edith’s home for the cookery class element. It’s fun and pretty light touch stuff where you’re free to participate as much or as little as you want within the group.

You’ll prepare around three dishes where most of the commis work has been done (thankfully).

Overall a fun experience.

When in Hong Kong, there's a lot of sights to see, food to eat, and ingredients to smell. The "Local Cooking Experience" with Edith gives you a chance to tour the busy Aberdeen market from a local's perspective and then help cook some amazing Chinese food. Edith is a true professional and organizes a very efficient and informative experience, while still allowing for organic connection to happen among fellow guests. I recommend booking this early in your HK stay because it will help orient you to the island's offerings.
