A great way to learn about Egyptian cuisine. Instruction was very easy to follow and possible substitutions for ingredients were given. Thank you very much!

Excellent content but streaming v jumpy & freezes. I’ve tried a couple of different platforms. Have trouble on any other tours.

Just enchanting, even if this isn’t a word normally used for cookery demonstrations / classes! It is a delight to be there with the birdsong in the background, learning how to make this delicious traditional dish. Thank you for a brilliant tour!
