When Ivy originally starting teaching cooking classes, she was teaching her foreign neighbors interested in learning more about Taiwanese cuisine. And that's exactly how she makes you feel, like her neighbor. She's an incredibly warm host who will impart invaluable knowledge about shopping at the market and cooking delicious Taiwanese cuisine. I hope to one day go back and learn more dishes! I highly recommend you take a class with Ivy, she's wonderful!!

A fantastic cooking class experience ! Ivy is a magician and a wonderful guide through taiwanese wonders. More than a cooking class, it was a real cultural discovery. Very pratical, I felt in love with Ivy's passion about food, nature and culture. For the planet lovers, this is the class you need to attend. She was able to explain everything about local fruit, veggies and cooking traditions. She has adapted all the meals to be vegan and it was delicious. I have spent a day in a cooking paradise with a great mentor. Thank you !

Dear Audrey, Thank you for your great comments! I hope the nature of Taiwan inspires your yoga too! I always believe that a cooking class is not just a process of cooking, but also the background of the food the culture of the country. Good food will touch the heart by its taste and story. Wish you stay sound and get more inspiration from your stay in Taiwan.

It was really a great experience cooking the food with Ivy. We loved everything, including Oolong tea, recipes with wide variety of choice, the way the cooking class was organised and especially the personality and hospitality of the host.

My fiance and I have done many cooking classes around the world; however this was the first where it was just a private cooking class with an equal cost associated with it. We opted for the market tour and cooking class option (with an additional cost for the market tour naturally). Ivy took us around the market, introducing and explaining some key ingredients the Taiwanese use for their dishes, and what grows locally (which is a surprising amount)! After the market tour (which was very insightful and enjoyable), we headed to her apartment which was a short 5-10 minute walk away. Ivy started off by providing us with some Tea (with the traditional Taiwanese method) and chatted with us some more about Taiwan and where we had already been. Once we finished the tea, she reviewed the menu (based on the items we wanted to cook) and we started preparing! We chose to make the Xiao Long Bao, Zhong Zi and Sweet and Sour Pork. Ivy took the time to explain all the processes for us - although also referenced in the recipe copy she provided for us. It was very kind of her to have prepared some of the ingredients beforehand as they sometimes took time to 'prepare' before putting together. However she let us be very hands-on, which was definitely appreciated as that is the fun part about cooking classes. Overall it was definitely a highlight to our trip in Taipei, and we would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking to learn and cook Taiwanese foods. Thank you for the great experience Ivy! When we come back to Taipei, we would love to do another class with some different recipes! <3

Dear Cinyi, Thank you for your detailed review. As in a private class, this is the best way to talk to people and understand what they are really interested in local food and culture to learn. That's why I persist to provide only private classes. I am happy to share my experience and turned out helpful knowledge and skill for you. Enjoy your cooking passion and hope to meet you again.

I highly recommend Ivy's classes - she is friendly, cheerful and kind! Also, most importantly very knowledgeable about recipes, ingredients, and Taiwan and as she used to be a Chinese teacher, we spoke mostly in Chinese and she corrected our mistakes - perfect! We made 4 dishes which were all delicious. the class was in her house which was a lovely place to be. I hope to visit again. 我强烈推荐常春藤的课程-她友善,开朗且友善! 另外,最重要的是,她对食谱,食材和台湾知识渊博,而且她以前是中文老师,所以我们大部分时间都使用中文,而且她纠正了我们的错误-太完美了! 我们做了四道菜,都很好吃。 班级在她的房子里,那是一个可爱的地方。 我希望再次访问。

Dear Allebara, Thank you for your great review! I am really impressed with your Chinese level especially you learn it not for your job and just for 5 months when you moved here. I admit that I enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge and techniques with mixed languages with my guests if possible. Such a conversation makes the class more interesting and unforgettable. I am sure you will practice Taiwanese cooking very often!
