Our family of 10 had an amazing time celebrating our annual Day After Christmas Surprise! Chef Ziva’s kitchen was ready for our arrival with all the ingredients organized and laid out on Chef’s long, long, long kitchen table. In our fettucini making class, Chef Ziva first demonstrated how to create the dough and then process it through the pasta making machine. Four of us were assigned to this task while the remaining six of our family was divided between making the bruchetta and preparing the creamy mushroom sauce that would be incorporated into the fettucini. Chef Ziva is a natural teacher - knowledgeable, patient, and caring. She made our cooking adventure enjoyable and memorable. Making our meal from scratch was not only a learning experience - it was a lot of fun, especially when we sat down in Chef Ziva’s dining room and shared the fruits of our labor making pasta...from scratch!

Chef Ziva was welcoming, enthusiastic, and my colleagues and I thoroughly enjoyed learning from her. Her instructions were good, and I was able to cook some of her recipes at home.
