    ...Manuela and her assistant were very patient and friendly and we felt like we there with them in their riad in Marrakech! Manuela made sure we all kept up with the steps of the recipe so we would have good results. We had a delicious dinner that night!

    I learned two delicious dishes: Vietnamese pancakes that I’ve always wanted to make and a spicy fried chicken that I’d never seen before. Excellent class and good customization for my wife's dietary restrictions. In fact, she said it was one of the best meals she’s ever had.

    We really enjoyed cooking with Tania. She is very lively, excited to teach and lovely to talk with. We highly recommend taking a class with her if you love travel, love food and love learning about other cultures.

    We truly enjoyed the virtual khachapuri and dolma cooking class with Lasha and Elene. Throughout the class, they monitored our progress and provided helpful advice. We visited Georgia last year and this class brought back some wonderful memories through the traditional foods of the country.

    Gabriella was amazing. She created a cross cultural cooking experience that my family and I will never forget. Her instructions before and during the class were perfect and the empanadas we made delicious. She easily managed the participation of my family across three different screens and even managed to entertain our granddaughter. For a few hours Gabriella bought us together over food to realize how similar and connected we all really are.

    My sister and I took the course together and we were both able to follow the directions and produce delicious versions of the dishes. It was a very pleasant evening, and we enjoyed learning about Shota's life and what living in Georgia is like. Highly recommend this delicious, non-complicated meal and Shota's guidance and company.
