Chef Valerie was professional, patient and very kind. We put our session to use by making empanadas the following week for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! Thanks for putting this cautious very new cook at ease.

Had a great experience with Chef Valerie. She answered our questions and was encouraging even when our empanadas looked a little sad.
