My wife and I had a great time. Eliza was knowledgeable and passionate. We highly recommend this class if you want to learn the basics of fermentation.

Chef Eliza and Chef Peter were INCREDIBLE! I ended up scheduling this event as a corporate team outing... and we all had such an incredible time! There were ten of us, along with two other guests, so quite the party. Chef Eliza not only didn't appear to be overwhelmed but also has such vast knowledge of cooking, fermentation and knife handling. She has a great sense of humor, laughed along with all of our jokes. We were allowed to bring snacks and wine- they also provided some for us! It was such an enjoyable experience and we will be sure to return for another corporate event. Thanks Eliza and Peter!
