Reviewed by Kristen K. on 5/27/2019
Perfect class size with 4 groups of 3 or 4. We made 4 unique dishes and everyone thought what I brought home looked so professionally done. Erin was a great instructor- clear and concise with lots of helpful hints. Popcorn and tea and coffee were served in case a snack was needed during the 3 hour class. Well done!
