Chef Raina is so knowledgeable and so sweet, her husband was also extremely kind and super amiable, I had a great experience. They made the experience really laid back so I felt comfortable throughout the entire class. They answered all my questions and shared their experiences with me about Indian food and traveling around India. The class itself was hands on and super easy to follow, even for someone like me with little experience in Indian cuisine. Trying the spices was one of the highlights since a few of the spices were ones I hadn’t tasted before or simply did not know the name of. I left the class really appreciating the food I had just made and definitely appreciating all the spices used, the depth it gave the food, and the amount of work one has to do to make these yummy samosas. I will be taking more of her classes in the future!!
