This class was phenomenal! Chef Yolande straight off the bat asked us how involved we wanted to be and basically let us be completely hands-on while coaching us. I wanted to build more culinary skills and definitely learned how to make my cooking better! She was also really nice and social.

Chef Yolande was such a gracious host, and her home was warm and inviting. Her cooking methods are practical and easy to follow. She made us feel so comfortable and went above and beyond to give us as much information about these and other dishes as we wanted. The meal itself was very healthy and yummy, and I now make some of the recipes we learned on a regular basis!
