Great class! Easy to follow recipes and the instructor explained everything extremely well. I didn’t even feel a need to ask any questions. It was thorough but still simple to do.

Karen Lee was fantastic. I learned a lot. She took care of all the details, and when she had some time to spare, she answered questions that the students were interested in. Bravissima! BlueBeard man!

Wonderful experience. It was fun, but more importantly, we left feeling more inspired to cook and took with us skills and tips that we immediately implemented the next day. We actually cooked pretty much all day making meals for the week. Karen is a great teacher who clearly wants her students to learn and enjoy her class.

It was a pleasure learning from Chef Karen. She really had the class learning everything hands on. She even teaches the importance of (where, where not and why) when purchasing fish . The importance of ginger and mushrooms for you health. I plan to take many more of her classes.
