What a great way to have the fun of your foreign culinary experiences last well after you you return from your trip; learn to recreate them at home! Joyce was a great guide at the wet market, not only did she explain many of the more unique ingredients, we were greeted personally by many of the stall owners which made... More

Lovely market walk and cooking class with Joyce! Learned a lot about the produce sold on the market; besides being fun, Joyce is very knowledgeable and keen to answer all questions that we had. The dishes we made represent local cuisine and are simple to make, so we can make them at home as well :-) We had a wonderful... More

What can be more rewarding to any foodie than to first stroll around a local market with a local then take the produce back to their apartment to prepare and cook it? This is very much a cottage industry. You are with a local in her own environment, learning from her. If you are a foodie, I can't recommend this... More

This was a great cooking course! My husband and I have taken a few cooking classes in a few different countries, and this was one of the best. The recipes we made were all really delicious but simple. We'll be able to make everything again!

Our morning spent with Joyce was full of exotic sights, sounds and smells. It was wonderful having a local to guide us through the maze that is the Shau Kei Wan wet market, explaining what produce was available and why they present it as they do. Joyce was happy to answer any questions we had, not just on the topic... More

This was a wonderful experience - the high point of our visit to Hong Kong, Macau and China. I am not usually one to step outside of my comfort zone and do anything unusual, but my son signed us up for this. Visiting the wet market and seeing how people actually live in Hong Kong was something I will never... More

I'll start by saying that we enjoyed our morning with Joyce. She was very warm and welcoming and was good about explaining things during the market visit and subsequent cooking at her home. I will say that the class itself isn't a great value given the menu and level of hands-on experience. The class costs roughly 80 USD and for... More

Had an excellent experience of home cooking with Joyce and her daughter. Joyce answered all my questions in the wet market, and the cooking class was great - I learnt technique for preparing scallops, making dumplings, and cooking using woks and steaming. Great time! Definitely recommend.

I've been to HK a couple of times and am not really interested in shopping. I was looking for something different and away from the usual tourist traps. I found out about Home's cooking school and wet market tour. I enjoyed spending time walking through a suburban wet market, asking Joyce about different fruits, the process of where the food...

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
