Superb! Everything I had hoped for and more! Daughter in law and I went on a girls night (an escape break for her from grandkids) to learn how to make pasta! Wow, Linda didn’t just show us the basic, she went on and above! I have done blue ribbon classes in Seattle, a ton of sur la tabla in Scottsdale, AZ, but none came to the mastery mind of Linda! A true gift. I loved she taught us with rolling without hand machines by hand on to helping tools. So if you don’t have them, you aren’t stuck, you can Cook either way. State of the art chef! I love her sternly mannerism to her friendly jokes. She captures your attention from A-Z. Will be doing this again!

Chef Linda was fantastic- organized, knowledgeable and friendly. I got purchased this experience as a gift for my partner because we have a special connection to New Orleans. We had so much fun cooking and eating delicious food (some recipes were from restaurants we had been to!) and learning. Would definitely recommend to a friend and want to take more classes from Chef Linda in the future!
