Our French Bistro Fare cooking class experience with Chef Karen was wonderful and the food was merveilleux!! From start to finish, Chef Karen was inviting, genuine and made us feel so comfortable to ask any questions. The kitchen has a wonderful set up and we loved learning all the little tips & tricks to make life easier in the kitchen. We can't wait to make this meal for our family and to hopefully take another class one day soon.
