Thank you! My family and I had the wonderful experience of the private ZOOM friends and family cookery class. Louisa and Chef Elvira were incredible! We had an amazing time learning the secrets of Sicilian speciality cooking. Finding the ingredients was simple and our menu was perfect for all of our friends and family. Louisa made us feel like we were in her kitchen with her the entire time! Delicious food, amazing teaching and entertainment and the perfect structure for a cooking class. I would HIGHLY recommend this cooking class for any family or friend event. Having been to the class in person years ago and doing it again from Zoom at home, I would say Louisa and Chef Elvira are incredible and I would love to do it again! – Mia & Michael from the US.
