A dear friend Alex gifted me with this online cooking class. I included my sister and her daughter and yesterday at this time, people in three countries cooked an amazing meal with Marc.
We had fun together, learned a lot - and ended up with a delicious meal that we will surely make again! This is highly recommended for anyone who loves to eat and for those who want a break from Covid isolation 🍲

My husband and I really enjoyed our cooking class with Jaew and the team. Although it’s a little pricey, it was definitely worth it for the experience, the banquet of food we made and enjoyed, and the recipes we took away with us.

Thoroughly recommend as an introduction to Burmese cuisine, a chance to explore a little of Yangon, and a great way to spend half a day.

After an interesting tour of a local market, you’ll have chance to make c.5 dishes. Unlike some other courses we have been on you get the chance to do pretty much everything yourself (no “here’s one I made earlier”). Our chef/guide was very knowledgeable, and supported by a great team throughout.

Well worth the money and I definitely recommend.

Absolutely loved my morning with Jo for the traditional cooking class and market tour! Jo and the rest of the staff/volunteers at Saba are incredibly friendly, relaxed and full of info! The market tour was a gorgeous way to fully embrace the traditional cooking class, with a local guide providing so much useful and interesting info on market life and how to navigate them. The cooking class itself was so much fun! All of the food was fresh produce, and they were simple, easy meals I’ll take back home with me! The flavours were amazing, colours were vibrant, and the food was delicious! We sat down together to eat afterwards, which was a really lovely experience.

It was a fantastic way to learn so much about traditional Myanmar culture, and share an amazing experience together through food and laughter, with a fantastic local guide who has an amazing background in cooking all over the world!

Will be bringing visitors to do the same tour, and recommending to everyone! Thank you so much for a great day!

If you are looking to tantalize your taste buds, look no further! This awesome cooking class is given by experienced national and international cooks with loads of experience. First you discover the lovely colours, flavours, sounds, and scenes of the Burmese market after which you are learned some delicious recipes. Friends and family back home will be impressed by your newly gained skills.

While traveling across the country, I enjoyed various Burmese cuisines and thought that learning how to cook would be a great way to close this two weeks' trip. And this cooking class turned out to be more than perfect. I could learn about every ingredient in the nearby local market and mingle with local people there. For the cooking part, the chefs and the friends there were very professional and kind. The kitchen was very clean and the program was very well organized. You should try this. Highly recommended.

For the market visit and the cooking class it was only the two of us. Not sure what to expect but we were surprised by the openness of our teacher. He explained everything very clear with a nice sense of humor. We loved that they joined us for the food we prepared so we had a nice closure of the lesson. Our backpack created by the women of the center is still traveling with us. We enjoyed every minute and learned so much!
