    ...I requested healthy foods, and boy did she deliver...Out of all the food I tried in the Philippines hers was easily the best.... Do yourself a favor and book this trip. It really is something special not to miss out on while you're here. 10/10 experience, would do again...

    ... unforgettable and definitely the highlight of our culinary trip. The food, the wine, the conversation, and of course, the music (still listening to Savage Daughter 😄) was an incredible experience - one that I will remember for years to come....
