Fantastic class! Teena was so friendly and enthusiastic, and my girlfriend and I learned a ton about classic Indian cuisine. The food we made was delicious.

My husband and I took our very first cooking class with Chef Teena, with an interest in learning to prepare a classic Indian vegetarian meal. We highly recommend the experience. Our senses were awakened, we delighted in the hands-on process of cooking together, and we walked away inspired. We plan to pick out ingredients today to prepare our menu again this week. It was a pleasure to cook with and learn from Chef Teena. We hope to enjoy her lively, engaging instruction again.
