I found Carolyn very easy to follow and she shares her enthusiasm for the recipe choices as well! Her enthusiasm is contagious! She presents with confidence and ease and is great about encouraging (and answering!) questions as well. She checks in with each guest often and is very interactive. I would highly recommend an experience with her
