Really wonderful instructor and class, and the result was great. In particular, I thought Chef Mab did a great job of introducing herself and Persian cuisine; and showing us how she was cooking while also fielding individual questions; and helping people out w/ substitutions. Really well done, overall.

I had such an amazing time! The experience was intimate and allowed for connections among the group but also super informative and of course...delicious!

LOVED the class, cooking in my own kitchen with my own pots, getting instruction from Chef Mab, hearing the questions, seeing the others cooking. What a wonderful experience!
