Chef Karmala was a great night/experience. She was very prepared and knowledgeable! She encouraged questions about anything cooking wise which I enjoyed. The food was amazing as well!! It was spicy but it gave the experience that much more fun lol We all had fun during every step of the menu! Definitely recommend her for more that just this class, but for special occasions as well!

The chef is nice but things didn’t quite work out as planned (the fitness didn’t work) so the class was very short and focused primarily on decorating pavlova.

I took one of Mala's class and I learnt so much and enjoyed the whole thing that I signed up for more of her classes. She is very knowledgeable and well organized and she jokes throughout which makes you feel at home and relaxed. I highly recommend her classes.
