She was great. Very interactive and engaged with students by name. I was impressed with the detailed instructions. She did go a little fast at the end, as if she was running out of time. And she didn’t use all the ingredients on the list (green onion for example). The cashew cheese was more of a cashew hummus. Overall though it was a great class with delicious recipes.

I purchased this gift for my husband since we had another fun experience cooking online with another chef. Chef Rishika did an awesome job! In order to cover everything, the class went a little fast (definitely prep your ingredients beforehand), so it was a little stressful at times, but she stuck to the time allocated. Having never cooked more time intensive Indian food, this was great. We both really enjoyed the meal and had great leftovers after adding some veggies to it. I would recommend this online cooking class to anyone who likes Indian cuisine and wants to learn how to cook a couple of dishes.
