This was one of the highlights of our Hong Kong visit. Joyce, our instructor, has taken us first on a tour to the local market to buy the ingredients we'll use for the cooking class. She has been very informative showing us the different shops and explaining the different items we saw on the market (always with a smile on... More

This is the second time I've taken a class from Joyce. She is charming and engaging, and very informative. Four of us enjoyed the morning inn the wet market. Joyce easily accommodated dietary restrictions. The food we learned to cook was delicious. Not to much cooking skill required, and Joyce helped us through. So not intimidating for the non-cooks. A...

Absolutely recommend! It was great to have someone walk through the market and point out things we would have never seen. Joyce was very accommodating for my allergies and we made delicious pork dumplings. She was a great teacher, very light hearted and patient (the chopping was very hard).

We had a fantastic morning with Joyce. Visiting the wet market with a guide was a brilliant way to learn about the local food and Joyce answered any questions we had and was very patient with us while we took lots of photographs (fish heads that were still breathing and fish pieces with hearts still beating were definitely something we'd...

We had a really enjoyable morning with Joyce in the market and at her flat cooking. She picked us up at the MTR station and was so friendly and welcoming. She was very knowledgeable about the different food items on sale at the market and was obviously a regular at the market so we had lots of friendly greetings from... More

Joyce was cheerful and easy to talk to! After we explored the local market, we headed to her Hongkong style apartment, which I enjoyed the most. We took subway to get there. We (four people in the class) made 2 dishes (dumplings and sweet dumplings) in the class. So it doesn't take long to cook. They were both tasty. Thank... More

The first part of the tour is going to the local market, which is very exciting and interesting. This is followed by cooking at Joyce's home. She has learned her cooking from her mother, giving the cooking lessons a true local flavor. It is also a great way to spend 3 hours with like minded people, ending with a delicious... More

I met Joyce at Shau Kei Wan with another lovely Lady from the UK (she never has more than 4 people in a class). We proceeded to the Wet Market and Joyce was very enthusiastic in explaining different foods and parts of the market - much better than wandering around aimlessly by yourself! We then went to Joyce's lovely little... More
