Chef Shailini is spectacular. She personalized the evening as we are vegetarian, kept it relaxing, educational, engaging and accommodating. She walked through each step, had us chopping, prepping, and participating in the experience. She also shared tips with us on what to do and where to get spices for our own kitchen. We will be back for another class with her in the near future!

We had such a great time with Chef Shailini. My gf and I were the only two in the class, so it felt like a private class. The steps were very simple and Chef Shailini was able to explain everything with clarity. The desserts taste so great and we enjoyed all of it! We would love to take another one of her classes.
