This was our first cooking class and chef Susie was amazing! She made it really fun and she taught me a lot about knife skills. Our tacos were super yummy and I can’t wait to take another class with her!

Suzy was absolutely amazing. There’s no better way to describe her knowledge, skill set, and patience. She did not rush us at all (despite our clumsy slowness with technique) and was able to correct and encourage. I cannot believe how much we learned in one class. She certainly went beyond the recipe to teach us about the importance of “time and temperature” and how to taste as you go to ensure the flavors fit your palate. I have walked away with so many new skills I can start applying right away and generalize to recipes I commonly make. The food did turn out so well, though, thanks to her guidance and expertise. The ambience was also lovely. Highly HIGHLY recommend!!!

Susie showed me how to make a plant based chocolate pudding with the base being avocados. She had a beautiful kitchen space with all of her ingredients lined up. She was very informative of each ingredient letting me know what the ingredient added to the dish. Her end presentation was beautiful. She also suggested alternative ingredients for different variations of the dish. I felt like I learned alot from her class.
