We had a fantastic afternoon with Carmen making pizzas and gnocchi, there were four of us in total and we had a wonderful time together - it really was great fun. I'm not a great cook but Carmen explained everything clearly and the food we created was just incredible! Thank you so much! We will definitely be back again :)

We had a wonderful time, learned some great recipes, ate and drank well while taking Carmen's class. We highly recommend taking one of her. She is a knowledgeable and very skilled chef. The dishes she chose for us to make were absolutely delicious.
