"Amazing cooking thought by an amazing teacher. Definitely worth the money for the food alone!!"
Vivien Savath 28 July 2020
"Online cooking with Shveta was the perfect way to connect our extended family remotely during covid-19! We had nine food-loving cousins in the class from San Francisco to Seattle and New York. Ages from 39 to 5 were all on the call and able to follow along with Shveta. My cousin’s boyfriend Pranai even said the resulting meal tasted just as good as the food he gets at temple! Until we can safely get on planes and eat grandma’s cooking again, we will be taking more Traveling Spoon classes."
