Just a great experience! Pamela was phenomenal to work with and our "I only eat boxed mac-n-cheese" kids are still talking about "the best mac-n-cheese they've ever tasted"! I can't wait until our next experience with Chef Pamela.

Best cooking class ever!!!! Chef Pamela is hilariously charming and her food is BOMB!!! I'm not sure people even cook like this anymore. She's old school new school if that makes any sense, and she had us singing to our food! LOL, it was so awesome! I was hesitant to leave this review for selfish reasons. I don't want her to ever not be available for our group, but her demand will grow, and we're so here for it! Fans for life! Thank you Chef Pamela, you are our favorite!
