We really enjoyed this class! Never having done this before now, my husband I weren't sure what to expect so were pleasantly surprised at the relaxed, conversational, and clear way this class was instructed. The atmosphere at Rockwell Brewing Company was perfect to share directions on the food prep and then enjoy the results. The mango salsa was the BEST I have ever tasted and I look forward to getting the recipe to try to duplicate it at home. Hope to do this again soon and bring friends along to enjoy as well!
