I decided to book a cooking class as a way to celebrate my best friend Karlas birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed learning how to cook Hawaiian food and would highly recommend chef Parsati!

Chef Parsati was amazing! She welcomed us into her home and made sure to accommodate everyone's allergies. Her Huli Huli chicken and potatoes were mind blowing, I'd love to recreate her recipe soon.

Cooking with Chef Parsati was a great experience! She told us she wanted us to feel like guests in her home just making and enjoying a meal together and that’s exactly how it felt! I learned a lot and enjoyed it very much!
