My wife and I had a great experience with Chef Joni. We had to move the date a couple of times due to the COVID situation and as things started reopening, we finally were able to meet with Chef Joni for a Thai dinner cooking class and celebrate my wife's belated birthday. Chef Joni provided a COVID-safe environment and followed the physical distancing guidelines. The class was well organized, and the whole atmosphere was very relaxed with quiet background music and kitchen/dining area perfectly designed to put you in the right mood. The food was delicious, chatting with Chef Joni was very interesting, she gave as great tips about cooking aids and ingredients, and she took us for a tour in her wonderful garden where she grows different herbs and vegetables. It felt as a special event and we highly recommend!
