This was the best cooking class I have ever experienced! We were a large group of 18 and yet everyone had continual, "hands-on" participation throughout the morning. The dishes were fabulous and Puspa, while very professional, kept everything light and lively with her tremendous sense of humour..."Start your engines, ladies..." I highly recommend this class - you will not be... More

Excellent cooking class, everyone had the chance to be involved in the preparation and cooking of the food. I would recommend the morning class as it includes a trip to the market which was very interesting. Lunch was the food we had prepared and it was all very tasty. Everyone received a recipe book to take home.
