Chef Maria was incredibly patient and full of great tips!! I did find it difficult to follow this class without a printed recipe that matched in detail. Happy to report it yielded delicious soufflés anyway!!!

We had an unforgettable experience celebrating our friend Jessica’s birthday with Chef Maria as our fantastic culinary conductor! Not only was she incredibly fun to “hangout” with, Maria was attentive, patient and able to go with the group’s flow. Thank you so much Chef Maria for blessing us with a great time, your wisdom, and sharing your sweet memories.
