This is fantastic half day experience. We took our two boys aged 10 and 8 and had a great morning making dumplings / chatting about Taiwan and generally having fun. Jodie is a great cook / teacher and Taiwan expert so you can't fail to have a great experience. We would recommend this to anyone....its fantastic fun and a great... More

Had a great day learning how to make dumplings. I'm a vegetarian which can be a challenge but this class was perfect since all the dumplings were vegetarian. Only 1 other person in the class made it intimate. We made 4 very different dumpling type dishes. All were fairly easy and just take some time to prepare but can also... More

From the moment Jodie opened the door with a smile and we saw the amazing views from her apartment, we knew we'd chosen well. We wanted to learn to make dumplings ftom scratch and we got just this. She gave the right amount of guidance, encouragement and leaving us to practise, for us to feel like we'd succeeded! She showed... More

This was a very special time in our most recent stop in Taipei. Jodie's class was outstandlingly clean, educational and delicious. It was a really outstanding afternoon's experience for us to learn the secrets of Taiwan's cuisine and eat them too. The charming place was only five minutes in the taxi from our hotel in the center, but its a... More

I did the dumpling class alone, but I learnt so much more than just a dumpling recipe. Jodie is a very inspiring woman. She really enjoys what she's doing and it shows. She taught me to make the basic dough which we used for dumpling, potstickers, pocket and the much wanted scallion pancake! Yummy! Even a dessert with black sesame... More

I had a class with Jodie in May. It was only me in the class, which was great. Although it was quite expensive, it was worth the money as I really enjoyed the experience, all of the food was simple yet delicious. It was also vegan/ vegetarian friendly which suited me, and I'm sure meat eaters would equally enjoy the... More

My husband and I like to take food/culinary tours when we travel as a means to get to know where the locals eat, purchase foods and do business. Fancy hotels, shops and restaurants don't give us a feel for the city we are visiting. We found Jodie's Kitchen and Walking tours online and decided to take her morning walking tour... More

My son and I took Jodie's dumpling cooking class during a visit to Taipei in May 2015. We thoroughly enjoyed learning this unique style of cooking. The four-hour class encompassed four recipes: 2 types of dumplings, green onion pancake, and "Zi Ma Tian Bing", a dessert made with black sugar and sesame seeds. Jodie's apartment is in a beautiful part... More

I took several classes with Jodie and loved them all. Whether learning about dumplings, basic Taiwanese cooking, taking a guided walk through the old city, or a leisurely hike in the beautiful mountains near Taipei, Jodie is a goldmine of information. Not only did she teach me about cooking, but I can't believe all I learned about Taiwanese history and... More
