    ...Isi is a great host and extremely knowledgeable not only about adobo, but Filipino food in general... Recommend for anyone wanting not just wanting to learn how to cook adobo, but for those who do know and want a deeper understanding or expand their dish repertoire.

    ... Our most recent experience was the Moroccan cooking class with Manuela, where we cooked a delicious tagine and rosewater pudding. It was relatively easy to prepare, and everyone who shared the tagine commented on how delicious it was!

    The instructor was very personable and a seasoned baker who was able to break down a complex recipe into smaller more manageable components... Thank you for an excellent and engaging class!
