My husband and I really enjoyed chef Shailini's class making desserts. It was great from the beginning, we were welcomed into her home and class began immediately. Shailini was explaining things as we did them and was open to all questions, creating a fun atmosphere for learning. We were baking most of the time there with a break for a delicious snack made by Shailini. We then got to decorate the desserts and eat them. They were delicious and I can't wait to make them again! I would highly recommend this class for anyone that wants to learn how to make tasty desserts that look good

We did Chef Shailini's dessert menu, the experience without doubt was worth repeating. I had an absolutely delightful experience in Chef Shailini's baking class. She effortlessly created an atmosphere that felt like baking with close friends. Throughout the class, she shared valuable insights, tips, and tricks while sprinkling in some humor with her jokes. Chef Shailini's warm and welcoming demeanor made everyone feel comfortable. I'm eagerly anticipating her upcoming Thai class and can't wait to join again!
