    Zeljka was very friendly and has explained a lot to us since I'm not a very good chef. The food she bought with us tasted in the end very well. Overall it was an experience that we would to again.

    Such a lovely afternoon & evening with Paula. She taught me to make a couple of dishes & dessert. It was a hot day so she made fresh lemonade for us to have while we cooked. I also learned a few new techniques to try for when I get home...
