"Rita was great, very friendly and patient. Even though I got the original date/time mixed up she was very accommodating and willing to offer another session. The class was great, easy to follow along and I learned a lot about the history of the dish. The vindaloo and cabbage both came out delicious."

"Two very different, but delicious dishes. My wife said the “caldine” was one of the best curries she’s ever had. I wanted to swap out a different vegetable in the shrimp dish, and Rita did a great job of walking me through the different way it needed to be cooked. "

"Rita's class was very enjoyable indeed, and we produced two absolutely superb Indian dishes. Rita gave me a fascinating insight into Goan food and its origins, and my wife was extremely impressed with dinner on that evening."

"Rita's class was very enjoyable, and I learnt a lot about Indian food in genera,l but also about Goan food in particular. The history of Portuguese influence was especially interesting. Both the dishes we cooked were really delicious, and we shall certainly do them again and impress our friends."

"I loved our cooking class with Rita. We made a delicious meal. I found her directions throughout very helpful. She described consistency or flavors in a way that helped me adjust on the spot even though she wasn’t in the kitchen to taste with me. She also had us show her our ingredients or work-in-progress dishes so she could adjust ratios or temperature suggestions. It was so well organized! I learned some new things and tried new flavors. It was such a nice way to hang out with a friend from another city as well. Thank you to Rita! "

"The class with Rita was excellent, both in content and in taste! Rita was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and we had a great time cooking with her. We especially enjoyed how much care she took in adapting the recipe to our spice level and to our available ingredients. It was delicious, and the mushroom cafreal was a totally new food for us! We would highly recommend Rita and her classes."

"I always appreciate when vegetarian food (the Mushroom Cafreal) is hearty and filling. It was so refreshing to encounter new tastes and flavors. She accommodated our schedule from the other side of the world and had everything nicely set up for her presentation. Rita would stop and examine our sauces for thickness and color and ask specific questions about the flavors, and everything was wonderful and perfectly cooked shrimp. I've already purchased all the ingredients to make our dishes again! Thank you to Rita for the new connection to your part of India and to sharing your wisdom and experience with us! "
