We loved our cooking class with Wayne and Ginger! Our class started with a brief tour of a local market where we were introduced to new fruits and herbal teas. Our class consisted of making three dishes and made-from-scratch bubble tea. We made some amazing memories and will definitely do another class with Wayne and Ginger when we visit Taipei again!
Very warm and heartfelt thanks for Mila our tour guide and her passion displayed during the tour!
Although the change of dates was quite last minute, she was accommodating and agreed to this tour for my small group. One can really feel the passion that she has for her home town when she shared with us her personal anecdotes together with the Keelung's history.
This tour was worth it, as a introductory tour to the hidden places for food, and will definitely come Keelung again to try out all the recommendations!
