Chef Polina taught my boyfriend and I how to prepare and cook paella with shrimp, clams, mussels, chicken, and chorizo. Her passion, expertise, and sense of humor made our date a fun, educational, intimate experience and we had an excellent time with just the 3 of us. Chef Polina also included a few easy appetizers and fruit for dessert. She has a beautiful home and garden and we felt very comfortable in her home. I would definitely take her class again!

Chef Polina is a delight! She came to our home and gave us, along with our friends, a paella lesson. Polina arrived extremely well-organized, with everything she needed to make a delicious dinner of tapas and paella. She gave us many helpful tips as she plated the tapas, sautéed vegetables, and assembled the chicken, shellfish, sausage and rice. Polina adds her own special twist to the meal - such as large pink shrimp, quail eggs from her own backyard quails, and a variety of spices from a local spanish grocery. As she prepares the food, Polina entertains her students with stories about her career and ilittle bits of cooking lore. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!
