Gaby, was a phenomenal host. Great at instructions and even better at story telling. We were thrilled at our experience and would recommend for private groups, no questions asked!

My team and I loved this experience hosted by Gaby! Her instructions for prep beforehand and the direction she provided during the class made it super easy to follow the recipes and have fun along the way. She was interactive with our group and very attentive to everyone’s skills and preferences. We would love to attend a class in the future - highly recommend this experience!
