Food was great! The pace of the meeting was very challenging to manage. The prep work was meant to be done in advance but we had said lots of us didn't do the prep work. Would have like to see a way to slow us all down to get on the same schedule.

This turned out to be a private class for my friend in me; it was terrific! Vivian and Michi were personable, patient, and accommodating.
