Chef Linda was gracious welcoming me to her home. She shared her story about what pushed her toward a culinary career, demonstrating the fruits of her studies magnificently. With her cooking, you get to indulge in rich flavors and ingredients, without feeling weighed down afterward. The Chicken Asparagus Crostata and Crab Tartlets expertly displayed her background with pastry, proving she has a knack for light yet impactful flavors. The Ravioli with Brown Butter and Sage Sauce was another simple-to-learn dish that guests will certainly want to replicate at home. After watching Chef Linda work the pasta dough, you'll know how to! Lastly, the Bombolini were a sugary sweet dessert - perfect for filling with espresso or chocolate - and a fitting way to end the class.

I was lucky to be included in a luncheon Linda hosted in her home. Because of the wonderful food and its beautiful presentation, I had Linda cater a Christmas party of heavy appetizers and fabulous desserts. She also prepared a selection of desserts and delivered them as a gift for us during the holiday season. She is multi-talented, but never miss an opportunity to try her desserts. I would give Linda 5 stars.
