This cooking lesson was a lot of fun and learning! Tess covered so much! Part cultural, part technics, we learned about the different kind of peppers being used in Mexico, the aromatics going into molé and how to process them. We also learned how to debone a chicken, how to build flavors as you saute veggies, etc, etc. All that in a relaxed atmosphere and beautiful home. I would definitely recommend it!

Tess is a delightful person and first-rate instructor. We learned a lot about making Thai food from the core fundamentals to how to shop for good ingredients. We also got to discuss how different cuisines from around the world are made in comparison. Her breadth of knowledge is awesome. Can't wait to take another class from her and/or see her comedy!
