This was one of the best days of our visit to Hong Kong. We met our teacher Joyce at the MTR in Hong Kong Island and she took us to a wet market, taking photos of our visit. We bought the ingredient needed for our class. We then went to her home on the 25th floor, and experienced a apartment... More

Myself and my husband spent a wonderful morning with Joyce and even had the added bonus of spending time with her very charming seven year old daughter as she was on holidays from school. The wet market was interesting but for us the highlight was being made to feel very at home in Joyce's own apartment. An opportunity we would... More

Just wanted to say how much fun it was joining Joyce last week. Our trip to the market was very entertaining and informative. Cooking up dinner at Joyce's flat was relaxing and tasty. I would recommend to anyone looking for a unique way to taste, see and experience Hong Kong hospitality.

We had an amazing day today at the cooking tour. The woman who lead our class was so sweet, and really accommodating to my friend's shell fish allergy. Her grandmother is adorable! The class is held in the yard of her home on a quiet, relaxing island about 20 mins from Hoi An. Everything we cooked was delicious, and it... More

Dears, thanks for your review. But I am afraid this review is not for Home's Cooking. We are located in Hong Kong. Our class is aimed to let travelers a chance to explore the real living in Hong Kong while learning the simple, easy-to-follow and delicious home-style Chinese cooking. Welcme to visit our website to learn more. Cheers! More

If you are in HK for more than a couple days definitely take this cooking class. The day I took the tour, it was pouring rain so we didn't get a great a tour of the wet market, it was a bit rushed. Joyce was nice and very welcoming into her home. I did the class with one other person,... More

Thanks for the feedback. Joyce loves food and cooking. Sometimes when she was walking in the wet market and found with great or seasonal ingredients, she will just react as usual food lover to think of the ingredients and the food which may come up with it. And she may propose to another menu to you (well, a chef special).... More

I have done cooking classes before and expected a whole lot more for the very steep price (even by Hong Kong standards). Joyce was pleasant and we had the opportunity to see someone else's Hong Kong flat but that is all we can say to recommend this. The cooking plan changed from the menu (even after we confirmed it). One... More

Joyce was an absolute pleasure! Our adventure started at a local wet market to buy ingredients, where Joyce showed us the ropes, explaining how to navigate the various stalls. We then went to Joyce's home where she taught us how to prepare and cook dumplings and shrimp stir-fry. The meal and overall experience was fantastic. Joyce is an excellent teacher... More
