We fell in love with Monica, her charming kitchen, and her delicious meal. She made us feel very welcome and answered all of our many questions. Most importantly, she made us all feel like we could go back home and (almost!) prepare the meal ourselves, and isn't that the whole point of a cooking class?!

Dinner with Monica was fantastic! She was very intentional about providing us with (delicious) local food and traditional techniques passed down from her own family, and answered all of our questions about the area. Highly recommend

Monica was absolutely *the best*. Not only was her food wonderful & genuine, but talking with her throughout the experience was endearing. Be sure to ask for Monica!

Monica was wonderful. We had a delightful day under her teaching. She showed us new and exciting things that we can now prepare for friends and family at home.
