We had an amazing experience with Nina, who is a very experienced and sweet teacher. We prepared the main menu and, thanks to her, it was one of the best meal we had in Georgia! She also shared her recipes and certificates of best kinkhali makers :)
It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Highly recommended to get a taste of real Georgian culture.

One of the best experiences on our first trip to Georgia, and such a great idea for getting to understand Georgian food and culture - by cooking it with those who know the best. We met with Nina and Maia at their apartment, and they took us straight into the kitchen, where we dove straight in to the shkmeruli recipe, then followed up with mchadi and finally, a full hands-on prep for khinkali. They are wonderful to chat with, so patient and personable, and we soaked up their know-how like a sponge. While we ate the proceeds, we learned a ton about Georgia, chatting about local history and events, even where to find blue fenugreek and saffron powder in the shops in the area. Highly recommended if you want a unique Georgian experience off the beaten path!

What an amazing experience in Tbilisi! We did the cooking class on our first night in Georgia and were so glad we did, as we learned a lot about traditional Georgian dishes. We were met outside their apartment building and brought up to their cozy apartment, where we proceeded to learn to make a number of delicious Georgian dishes. It was the perfect amount of hands on cooking and prep work, while some ingredients were already pre-prepped for us.

The food was so delicious and we even got to have some homemade wine with our dinner. The best part was talking with Maia, Nina and their incredibly smart son/grandson over dinner. We learned so much about life in Georgia and were so thankful for the insight we received. We even received a extremely well produced cookbook with the recipes for what we cooked, along with recipes for other Georgian dishes.

You will not regret this class! It was such a memorable experience!

My sister and I really enjoyed this experience when we visited Tblisi. We did it shortly after arriving in Tblisi and it was a great introduction to some of the food we would be enjoying during our visit. The class inspired me! I bought lots of spices before leaving Georgia and also a ketsi for making mushrooms.

Just like all the other reviews, I loved Maia and Nina's class. They are wonderful women and very skilled cooks. I enjoyed chatting with them and learning about Georgia, including but not limited to the food. This was one of my favorite activities I did in Tbilisi!

We had a wonderful cooking experience with a fantastic mother daughter team, Maia and Nina.
In advance we asked if we could try and cook very specific dishes we really liked most and had eaten during our trip in Georgia. This was no problem at all and they were very enthusiastic about our suggestions! We cooked at their home in very nice and family atmosphere. We were allowed to do some things ourselves and felt nicely involved in the preparations.
Everything was explained very calmly and in detail. You could make videos and photos along the way.
The subsequent dinner in the living room was terrific and we had very good conversations.
We can only recommend the two of them wholeheartedly and it has been a great experience that we would not want to miss.

Maia&Nina, all the best for your business! We will definitely visit again on our next trip to Georgia,

Vera & Felix 🤗🤗
