"Savita’s class was awesome! She warmly invited us into her home, shared her best tips on cooking this recipe and was really invested in making sure our dishes were developing as they should throughout the cooking process. We had three in our group and she individually coached us through how to make sure our dish was just right. After taking her class, I really am skilled in making this dish again, since her tips and coaching were so specific. I made the dish again (on my own from memory!) the next weekend even. All around, a fun time connecting with someone new but also a fun way to connect with my Mom and cousin since we are in different locations around the country. I totally recommend Savita and this class! Everything was smooth in setting this up! We asked beforehand if anything should be prepped before because we wanted to be extra sure and received direction from Savita to chop items which was helpful and I’m glad I asked so we weren’t behind!"
