What to expect
We spent a memorable evening with Sandra, not only due to her excellent cooking! A recommended experience.
It was a lovely moment in Rome! We were warmly welcomed by Sandra and she generously shared with us her family recipes and tips to make good pasta. We definately recommend this experience !!
Sandra was an amazing host, chef, and story teller. We had so much fun. I hope I'll be able to show her around New Orleans some time soon!
Great class with a fun host! The meal we made together was delicious! I really admired how knowledgeable Sandra was about Italian cooking. Highly recommend!
