Chef Parsati was an amazing teacher! In addition to learning how to make the dishes (which were all delicious!) for the class, she also took the time to teach us how to make substitutions and how to use tools that make the process faster/easier. She shared the recipes with us after the class, and we’re looking forward to recreating the delicious dishes at home!

Amazing experience of an authentic multi-course meal. Convenient spotless cooking space, comfortable kitchen utensils, mise en place of everything needed when we arrived. All the necessary covid-related precautions. The instructions were very thoughtful and informative, with lots of tips on how to handle authentic ingredients, spices, and how to adjust the recipe to someone's taste. Chef Parsati was super attentive and delightful to learn from. And, of course, the meal was fantastically delicious. Amazing experience for a date night! Thank you, chef Parsati!
