Chef Tay was great. She explained to us step by step how everything should be done. Food was amazing, super tasty. It was great to have her come to our home since she showed us how to use our own kitchenware to cook all the food. I really recommend this class.

Chef Tay is a very nice person and I enjoyed spending time with her! Her food was very tasty, and she is passionate about Southern and Caribbean cooking. I learned how to make grits creamy and tasty -- and they were delicious!

Since I have known this woman, she has been cooking! I am happy to see her share it with the world! The Mac & Cheese is the cheesiest, The Fried Chicken is the crispiest and if you name any seafood dish, she can execute it with TLC and finesse! The way her soul speaks through her dishes, it is riveting! I would book her for any event and be confident that my guests will not only have a satisfied palette, but also be met with incomparable service and professionalism!
