Chef Catalina was a great instructor and the entire experience was fun. We lucked out and had a funny group and it made the time that much more memorable. 5 stars, no scam here :)
23 Feb 2022
We had a good time and having only 4 people in the class was a bonus! Catalina was friendly and knowledgeable. The only reason why we gave 4 stars is because it would of been nice to have a recipe to take home to be able to make the dish on our own. I understand a lot of it is taste preference but to have a basic recipe would of be great!

The class was a fun experience to try. My only suggestion would be to have more food available so people can take home some leftovers and to limit the class size so the space isn’t cramped.
