    The Italian Desserts class I took with Chiara was absolutely wonderful!...Taking this class was a great way to "visit Italy". Chiara was very organized, gave great tips on baking, and was such a warm and encouraging teacher...I highly recommend this class!

    ...we took Isi's class because we know we'll learn a lot more than what is taught traditionally. Let's just say we got more than what we expected. We learned history, we "toured" the different methods of the major island groups... we got to know a cool Pinoy!

    ...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.
