Let me start by saying that Poo is very nice. If you have an interest in cooking, food, and culture- this is not the right class for you. We booked a private class with Poo- all of us cooks and interested in spending a very...More

I went with my grown-up kids and though we've travelled all over the world this was one of the most interesting markets we've ever been to. Poo showed us around and explained everything. She's a remarkable woman; her business helps lift slum-dwellers out of poverty....More

A great morning touring the market with Poo and her team, then cooking 4 dishes using ingredients bought that day. Poo’s story is inspirational and she puts together a fantastic program.

Cooking with Poo is a fun and immersive experience for the whole family. Our kids are all teenagers and enjoyed getting first hand experience at creating three delicious dishes. We were all amazed how simple the dishes were to cook but still absolutely delicious.
