Great experience learning to make French bread with Stephanie. She made the class very enjoyable as well as giving excellent and detailed instruction. Her home was very pleasant and we even had the pleasure of taking bread home with us. Thanks Stephanie.

This French Breads baking class was my Mother’s Day gift to my mom and we had a great time with Chef Stephanie! :) Not only was it so cool to have a chef from the country of the cuisine, Chef Stephanie was very welcoming into her home, friendly, and encouraging during the class. Highly recommend! :)

My wife is a great home baker, but she's always been a little gunshy when it comes to macarons. I took her to Chef Stephanie's kitchen (we booked together so I could learn a little too!), and had a terrific time. Chef is an excellent teacher - explanations were clear and organized, and full of smart "hacks" that resonated both with my wife, an experienced baker, and with me, a novice. We enjoyed hearing about her French upbringing and her professional journey as much as we enjoyed tasting our macarons at the end of the session. And my wife is looking forward to replicating her experience at home! Thanks!
