    My wife and I, along with two of our adult children and a girlfriend attended this “class” on May 19, 2019. It was wonderful!!! Our visit began with a brief tour of the area by our very friendly guide. Then on to the class. It was on the lower level of a very nice cooking wares store. We were served sangria or wine to begin with. Our chef and her assistant made everything so easy and light hearted. Her instruction and advice was easy to follow and she was willing to go into great detail if we wanted that. To us it was instructional but more of a fun thing to do. We agreed that if one were very serious about cooking, she would still have been a wonderful instructor. And that is not just the wine and sangria talking!!!
