Chef Alicia was incredible! She is extremely knowledgeable and we learned so much from her, both general tips about how to mix flavours and specific advice for using wonton wrappers. Chef Alicia was extremely kind and a great teacher. And the food was delicious!! Each dish was a mouthwatering combination of flavours and textures. We can't wait to try the recipes again on our own!

My wife and I had a great experience with chef Alicia. She made sure to make us both feel comfortable while learning a new cooking style and have fun in the process. Chef Alica's skills are great not only as a chef but also as a teacher. We are really happy with the experience. Oscar
