Both me and my wife had an excellent time cooking with Chef Tess. She is inviting, funny, warm, and knowledgeable. The food we were guided to prepare was amazing... so many layers of flavor. Although we took a Thai class, I do believe Chef Tess's techniques and people skills would make any class she teaches fun and delicious. I would recommend Chef Tess to anyone looking for these things. Congratulations and best wishes with the pregnancy!

What a wonderful meal! Tess is the best! She's funny and she teaches you why you're doing what you're doing with each recipe! So confident that I'll be able to try these recipes at home!
