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 was amazing! She made us feel so welcome and at home! She started the class by asking us about ourselves and then found ways to connect our background to the cooking techniques she taught. The lesson was amazing and the food was delicious! Highly recommend Chef Parsati!
