Chef Joni was a pleasure to cook with. She was inviting and warm. I surprised my husband with the Italian cooking class for his birthday and we had such a wonderful time. Cooking the ragu, making homemade pasta and tiramisu was so special to us. We are looking forward to another class with her and definitely recommend her to everyone.
