    Meeting Payal and cooking with her was such a pleasure for our family! She was incredibly friendly and engaging, and so supportive and helpful as we made the recipe together-- it felt like she was right there in our kitchen with us!...

    Our cooking experience with Daniel was such a wonderful and memorable experience for our family! ...Our kids had a great time participating in the cooking process and also learning about Ethiopian traditions, history, and music. It was a pleasure to meet Daniel's lovely family during the session as well! ...we look forward to joining Daniel again soon!

    Did this class as an online birthday surprise for a friend, and we all had a blast! The dosa recipe is a little challenging for those new to South Indian cooking (as we all were), but Kavitha was so helpful and patient with all our questions. Would highly recommend this class!

    We did this as a family of 6 - 3 different households, 3 different time zones. Nancy's pre-meeting ingredients list and instructions were very thorough, and she was a warm and lively host during the class. We really appreciated that she left her zoom account open after we finished cooking so we could eat "together."

    What a wonderful morning we spent cooking with Mirella & Stephano cooking gnocchi, Tuscan ragu and tiramisu... It was a great multi generational experience for my stepdaughter, 2 teenage grand daughters and me... I feel confident enough to make the recipes again on my own. Gracie Mirella!
