      Wonderful time with my 9-year-old granddaughter
      Rachel helped us prepare a wonderful homemade pasta and red sauce dinner. My 9-year-old granddaughter who already was interested in cooking especially enjoyed the experience. Rachel interacted with her as nothing less than a miniature chef as we made linguine from scratch and a red sauce with lots of herbs. It absolutely turned into a tasty dinner with wonderful company. Heartily recommended

      Make pasta like a pro
      This was an amazing experience in an intimate setting with Rachael as our host and teacher. We were a total group of 8 plus our host. She was patient and positive. I would definitely recommend to others. It is in her apartment, so be prepared for the personal space. It doesn’t hinder the experience.

      NYC cooking class
      Amazing experience. Doing this in an intimate environment with just a few people really makes the experience super enjoyable. Rachael had a great personality and made the experience memorable. Everyone had a great time. Couldn't recommend more highly!

      The class was cancelled and I didn't even get an email about that. So I went there and stood there with my friend who I gifted the class to. Nobody was there. Now I am trying to get a refund but they don't answer the phone. Horrible.

      A must try if you're looking for something fun, new, and different!
      I didn't really know what to expect when I signed up for Uluc's online coffee reading, but what a pleasant surprise! Overall, the experience was incredibly fun - perfect for a group of friends! Uluc is very personable and interactive. He provided a wealth of information regarding the Turkish coffee tradition and was able to read insights into my life that resonated. I left the session feeling inspired and lighthearted. I give this online experience 5 stars for Uluc's upbeat personality, the anecdotes and stories he provided, as well as the reading itself. The format of the experience worked great with no major technical issues. I highly recommend it.

      Try Something New
      This was such a fun way to get together with my friends! We decided to switch up our typical Zoom happy hour hangout routine and try out the coffee readings with Uluc. We learned about the Turkish tradition and did a spin using our coffee at home. It was cool to see the process and my reading was pleasantly surprising. It was a good time and an awesome moment to share together in a new way :)

      Chocolat Dreams!
      This was an especially immersive experience from beginning to end! Daniela's workshop gave me a new found appreciation for cacao and all of it's uses/plant medicinal properties. She is so knowledgeable about the plant and had a lovely spread of homemade treats (both sweet and savory) with cacao for us to try. I'm still sipping on hot cocoa with the chocolate we processed together. Her space is so aesthetically Brooklyn - decorated with her husband's art, holistic books, and herbs galore. I felt like I was living in Chocolat! Great option for friends and couples.

      Very fun and interesting experience in Lower East side!
      I LOVED my experience with Uluç! It was really interesting to learn about the tradition of Turkish Coffee reading. The coffee was delicious as well as the home made Turkish delights! Very relaxed atmosphere with other guests and super fun experience when he reads in the coffee cup, I would definitely recommend! He's also sending the guests a map with his favorite spots in the area. He's very passionate and wants to share his culture with his guests, I'm going to send him friends next time they are in town!

      Wonderful dinner with great hosts
      We loved our dining experience with Dina in her home. The food was authentic and delicious and not something we would easily encounter in NYC (or anywhere outside the Balkans). Dina explained each course and also talked about culture and traditions from the Balkans. We were a group of 4, along with others, and also had lively conversation on a range of topics! Highly recommended!

      Delicious and Full of Insights!
      As a Filipino American, I was curious to learn more about my culture and its food from a host who has made waves in New York's Filipino Food Movement. Host Raf didn't disappoint by any means. While at his experience, he made sure everyone was welcomed and comfortable, re-introduced our itenerary and menu, faciliatated fun discussions along with trivia, and explained each dish as we ate. I could tell that Raf has put so much passion and care into his tours and anyone who attends, Filipino or not, can learn and eat something new.

      A beautiful evening with delicious food!
      What a gem! Johnny and Julias experience was fantastic! Every dish was so thoughtful, delicious and beautifully presented. They explain why they chose these dishes and how they came to craft the menu. You can get a sense for how much it means for them to share their passion of food - and it was delicious. (I still can't choose which dish I enjoyed more!) We had locals and travelers at our table, and the conversation took us from travel stories to the "must places to try" while in New York. It was a beautiful evening.

      Wonderful dinner and experience after the US Open
      Our group of 11 experienced a wonderful dinner with Johnny and Julia in their home in Brroklyn. Johnny's family is from Honduras and all 6 courses were inspired by this. From the margaritas, to the yuca con chicharron, the corn tamale and awesome sopa de mariscos, everything was spectacular and the atmosphere was like a family meal. We highly recommend this experience and it was our 4th EatWith dinner and might have been our best so far. Thanks for a great evening Julia and Johnny.

      Intimate and delicious!
      I hosted a party for my wife's 40th with Julia and Johnny, and it was absolutely wonderful! Even my most mushroom-skeptical guests were converts by the end of the meal. Highly recommended.

    What a unique, special, and fun event! Uluc is such a great host in so many ways. He is so welcoming. I'll add that I've never gone to a "reading" and was skeptic about this experience, BUT I read so many great things that I wanted to experiences it myself - I am happy I did. Uluc takes you through the tradition of Turkish coffee; from the preparation to its role in the culture. Guests enjoy Turkish delights with their coffee (Uluc makes one himself! So good!). Then you get your reading. It's fun and enjoyable. I've recommended it to all my friends in New York!
