Chef Shailini was amazing! My mother (who has cooking experience!) and I learned many useful cooking tricks. We will make these recipes again and again. FIVE STARS for a wonderful evening and recipes that will be used for years to come. Thank you chef for not only your expertise but for a fun evening. :)

This class was a gift to my children, they were both a bit skeptic but had a truly lovely time. The instructor is incredibly warm and deeply knowledgeable and it quickly feels like cooking with your beautiful worldly aunt. The food was incredibly tasty and it was great to see the process and learn about the dishes and the culinary tradition of Nepal. Wonderful class would recommend if you love Nepali food and also as a great introduction to the cuisine. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
