What People Say...

Thank you so much again for today’s class. We had a wonderful time, the food was delicious, and I came home inspired to cook more vegetable based meals and use more “exotic” spices. Oh and my husband was very grateful for the doggy bag - he had a late but very delicious lunch on my return, dessert included!
We’ll be back for sure for a different class. Keep us updated!
