    We loved the class. We had family from across the United States join. The chef and her team were so professional and so welcoming. The food was delicious. They gave us the opportunity to celebrate as a family even though we can’t get together in person.

    Reshma was terrific, she was incredibly patient with some novice chefs on our screens (we had 6 total screens). She did a great job interacting with each of us, sharing insight about the food but also shared about her culture.

    Cinzia was a great teacher! She not only told us how to make the food, but added the history behind why it is made that way in that part of Italy!

    Reem was lovely to talk to... We were so proud of our accomplishments and made the same meal the next day! ... we found a time that worked perfectly with our schedule. Seamless and fun experience.

    Margarita was an amazing teacher! She went at a perfect pace and offered helpful feedback when we had questions about the recipe. The food turned out great! We never thought we would be so successful at making delicious homemade tortillas. We would recommend this experience to everyone!

    Tania was a wonderful host. It was so pleasant to be with her and we learned a lot from her and her mother. The falafel was terrific. We all LOVED it. We will be back for the meze class.

    Josh did a wonderful job teaching our group how to make Sangria and Paella. His teaching style was perfectly paced and informative. The recipes were fabulous! I can’t believe we made this in our own home. I hope Josh offers other classes because we will definitely be back for more.

    My teacher was excellent. She explained everything and made me show the pan every once in awhile to make sure I was doing everything correctly. I learned a lot and was very pleased with everything.

    One basic, easy to make dough (not like a lot of other kinds of pastry) plus a big variety of shapes and fillings to mix and match. You really get a lot of bang for your buck with this well-organized and fun class.
