We went over on time, but had a great experience learning how to make various doughs from scratch! I loved that we learned the whys and didn’t just follow recipes so there’s more understanding behind it all.

My husband and I loved this experience. Chef Monica was super knowledgeable and so interesting to talk to, I mean that in the best way possible. The food was delicious and we learned so much about different types of flour and information about gluten. We made gnocchi with truffle Gouda, profiteroles, tart tatan and dough for naan. Chef Monica fed us bruschetta and vegan chocolate ice cream. This was just a treat. Delightful experience. Thank you for the sourdough starter!!

Just wonderful :) - we left with a head full of knowledge, good food, a great hands on experience, a desire to make sourdough and understanding so much more about gluten, food production and more. Highly recommended. Be sure to ask questions from this food industry insider!!!
