Highly recommended! Jane helped us make beef wellington and explained the whole process. She definitely knows how to run a kitchen - nothing felt rushed, but all courses were ready simultaneously. Jane has an impressive knowledge of all cuisines and helped us improvise with limited resources in our tiny kitchen!
