Chef Parsati was great for our corporate team building event! She brought everything needed for us to make the dumplings and helped us steam them afterwards for a tasty meal. She included both vegetarian and chicken options and was careful to keep them separate. While we were making them Chef Parsati explained the importance of each ingredient and how it'd contribute to the end taste and showed us multiple ways to fold the dumplings. Our team really enjoyed the event!

Chef Parsati gave us an excellent date night cooking experience. She welcome us into her home, was very safety conscious with regards to Covid and taught us some delicious dishes that I can’t wait to remake at home. Would happily book another class with her in the future.
