Harvard Cookin' Girl was wonderful experience. Bibi was an excellent host and her staff was wonderful also. Went with a group of people and everyone had a very good time and wel all enjoyed having a hand in preparing our meal as well as gaining a better understanding and appreciation for the food we were prepariing. Would definitely go again.

My wife and I had a great time at Bibi's! She was one of the best hosts we've ever met, very friendly and professional. We opted for an Italian menu and every dish turned out to be so unique and original, in terms of taste and presentation. It's worth every penny! Remember to go with an empty stomach :)

Dear Ryan- I just saw this great review. It was such a pleasure to have such a nice couple all the way from Singapore to come and have my food and see them so happy. I think that the baby news added to your excitement that day:) Keep me posted on great news and come back (with the baby) next... More

We spent two nights of our week long trip to San Diego with the Harvard Cookin' Girl and her staff. The first night was with a group of girlfriends. We enjoyed it so much that we returned with our husbands. Both evenings were fun, entertaining, and educational. What a great and different night out! Worth the drive from San Diego.... More

Bibi was an amazing host and the food was fantastic. We had a diverse group of people and everyone had a great time. Bibi's knowledge of good and spices and her engaging personality made this a perfect event. I'd highly recommend it!!

My 8 year old daughter loved her week at Harvard Cookin Summer camp. She came home with a new interest in cooking, participating in dinner prep at home, and experimenting in the kitchen. She was excited to show off her professional onion chopping skills and even helps clean up. Thank you Harvard Cookin!
