A great experience! Chef Veronica did a great job preparing a tasty dish of blackened catfish with a papaya mango salad. Great conversation about her background, the food scene, and life in general! A fun and unique way to do a birthday!

Veronica is extremely knowledgeable. She created really well paired dishes. We truly enjoyed Veronicas company, her enthusiasm for cooking, and the conversations we shared. Her love of food rubbed off on all of us. It was like having an old friend for dinner.

Chef Veronica was great. She welcomed us into her home and brought really positive energy to the cooking class experience. She answered any and all questions about blanching, knife sharpening, and more! The food was delicious and the experience was so memorable. It got my husband and I inspired to cook and experiment more. Thank you!
