Amazing class! We learned so much and had such a fun time with the other two couples. Chef Rakhi's home was beautiful and very welcoming. The food was delicious as well. We'll definitely be back!

Chef Rakhi was wonderful! She asked how hands on we wanted to be allowing us to do as much or as little as we wanted to do. We wanted to be hands on, so she showed us what to do first and then gave pointers along the way. She answered all sorts of questions - questions related to the recipes and basic cooking techniques. Our high schooler enjoyed the class and felt comfortable trying to cook as wellThe food was delicious and she was so accommodating. Highly recommend her class!
