It was a totally different kind of tour experience in HK - tour of HK's Shau Kei Wan roadside wet market in to buy raw ingredients then Ceci brought us to her apartment for the cooking session. Although our group was small but we enjoyed very much. Ceci is a wonderful cooking instructor. After the cooking we get to eat the food that we prepared. It was yummyyyyy... Thank you Ceci. I shall get in touch with you again the next time i go to HK for more cooking.. Can you please email to me the recipes that we have cooked and also the fun photos that we took during the memorable 4hours of market tour and cooking. God bless you Ceci !!!

We met with Ceci for the class and had a terrific time! Ceci first took us to the wet market where she helped us pick out super fresh ingredients, explained some of the local culture, and introduced us to new foods. After touring the wet market, Ceci took us to her home where she guided us through preparing the ingredients and then showed us step-by-step how to cook the dishes and sauces. We made a black bean scallop dish and dumplings, which were all very delicious. Ceci even let us take the leftover dumplings home! Ceci was very friendly and we learned a lot from her. We highly recommend this class for anyone visiting Hong Kong; it was a really great, authentic experience that allowed us to see more of the city.

What a wonderful way to spend a morning in Hong Kong! My husband, our 14-year-old daughter and I met Joyce and Ceci at the Metro station and walked to the wet market. Although it was POURING, we still enjoyed seeing all the wares on display, and Joyce and Ceci explained different aspects of the market, showed us around vendors' stalls, explained why we were purchasing certain ingredients, etc. We then took a tram to Joyce's apartment where we strapped on aprons and got to work. As others have noted, if you're an experienced home cook, there's not much high-level instruction given, but Joyce talked us all through the steps in creating the dishes for our lunch that day. Everyone was able to participate and it was fun to see how efficient Joyce is in her tiny (by American stds.) HK kitchen. Joyce had great tips re ingredients, and it was fun to get to know her and Ceci a little bit better while we spent the morning prepping food. They are both delightful and easy to make conversation with. I should add that I am gluten intolerant, and communicated extensively with Daniel, Joyce's husband, about this prior to our arrival. Over email, Joyce made some suggestions for menu items that would be completely wheat-free, and we went with some, chose another off her set Friday lunch menu (hot and sour chicken wings). Joyce's suggestions were awesome and we all enjoyed the appetizer, entree and dessert (um, glutinous rice dumplings stuffed with melty chocolate, floating in a sweet ginger tea?! I dream about them, still) immensely. It was also fun to meet Joyce's daughter, see what their apartment looked like, etc. Joyce took lots of pictures for us, which she has passed on, along with all the recipes for the dishes we made together. We'll have fun cooking them at home and reminiscing about our fun and off-the-beaten-path HK experience! We all agree that this was the highlight of our visit to Hong Kong.

Hi, we met our instructor Ceci at the MTR station and started shopping on the market. Fresh vegetables, meat and scallops we bought. Tasted a warm egg tart and took the mini buss to Ceci’s home. Ceci is an very good instructor, afterward we could really easy remember the steps we took following the recipes. Cleaning, chopping, ‘stirring the meat’ only one way, and folding the dumpling etc.. We prepared our own very nice home cooked lunch. We liked that the course was given in Ceci’s own apartment. So we could see how an local family lives in Hong Kong. We had nice conversations about China, Hong Kong and kids. My brother and I highly recommend this ‘Home cooking course’ !

We usually fit in a cooking class wherever we travel and we looked forward to a class on dim sum. We booked Joyce's Home Cooking class and Joyce met us at the local MTR and took us for a tour of a local wet market to collect the ingredients for the class. The market was very interesting and Joyce obviously had lots of connections at the markets. Joyce explained how the markets operated and shoed us some of the more intriguing produce that could be found there. After collecting the ingredients, we went to Joyce's apartment to cook. Joyce's apartment is small and the kitchen is even smaller, but we got the opportunity to watch Joyce cook as well as having a go outside. We made a delicious scallop/black bean dish and heaps of pork dim sum. We learnt how to fold the wrappers to produce the dim sum. We only made 2 dishes, but given that the tour and class was only 3 hours (including market tour, cooking and eating) that was plenty. We sat down and ate most of the dim sum ( there were heaps) and talked about Hong Kong dining and chop stick etiquette. It was a very good morning and we picked up a lot of tips. Well worth it. Joyce is a very friendly, knowledgeable and polite instructor. Highly recommended.
