Dunja Vupora, sales coach for L'Occitane

We are grateful and happy that we have great people like the three of them who can help us in our business of running a wine shop, who are experienced and love what they are doing. We had a number of opportunities to work with them, and that was always professional and qualitative, and what is more important, with lots of laughter and fun.
We can not wait to see what they have prepared for a future business adventure…

Wine shop Bornstein

Working with Stephen and the whole team was the best choice we could make. They went far beyond our expectations. Food was the absolute winner of our St. Patricks Day Party. Our guests had amazing comments, asking for recipes and enjoying every bit of food served. I would say, in this case, the food was not just food, but an experience. The best part of our time, working with Gourmet Experiences was the type of imagination, out-of-the-box thinking, and flexibility the whole team showed us during initial preparation of the event. I would recommend them to everybody as they cook with love.

Anja Rubčić, chairman of Inicijativa federation for English language and culture

We took a Strukli cooking class with Karmela while on vacation in Zagreb.  We were not just looking for a class on how to prepare this lovely traditional dish but to learn about the culture of Croatia — Karmela provided exactly that!  We had a great time learning to prepare Strukli and Karmela added wonderful stories about the history of Croatian cooking.  While the Strukli was cooking in the oven she took us on a spectacular walking tour through the nearby open- air Dolac market and then to the meat and fish markets.  This enriched the experience far beyond what we expected … and gave us much to ponder as we returned to her kitchen to enjoy the most delicious Strukli with our new friends. 
We would highly recommend this experience and we look forward to returning to Zagreb for more classes with Karmela!
