My friend and I had the most amazing experience with Chef Erica! As a newbie cook and HUGE fan of British Bake Off and other cooking/food shows, this was exciting to do. Chef Erica was not only welcoming but made the experience of cooking step so much fun. You can tell she loves what she does and you can feel it as she explains the steps. I will definitely be back!
