Charlene was absolutely excellent! Phenomenal class, she did a great job of explaining the dishes (along with great stories!) and keeping both of us occupied while we were cooking. Neither of us felt left out of the experience of the cooking class! The food was absolutely excellent and will be trying to make the recipes again! 10/10 Experience

We had a great dinner party (9 in total), and overall Charlene was very good; very professional, well organized, and the food was very nice. We especially liked the crabless cakes. The group was not all veg or vegan, but everyone enjoyed the food.

Our experience with Chef Charlene was AMAZING. The food we cooked together was absolutely delicious. Exceeded our expectations. Even our 12 year old daughter had a blast learning about vegan food and how to cook it. I highly recommend any class with chef Charlene. She is fun, very professional, and knows her stuff!
