We had a wonderful team-building session with Chef Maryam. Her home setting made this experience all the more lovely, as you get to see what a professional chef's home kitchen looks like! Chef Maryam's passion for cooking shines through her lesson and conversation, and her knowledge is incredible. She got everyone involved in the prepping and cooking process, and gave us insightful tips along the way to make home cooking easier and much, much tastier. And don't get me started on how delicious the 4-course meal was!

I attended the Elevated Italian Feast class for a team bonding activity, and it was such a delight to work with Chef Maryam. She is clearly passionate about food, cooking, and making a positive experience for her guests. I learned so many helpful tips and tricks too! I would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a unique group activity. Thanks Chef Maryam!
