Had a super fun morning with Capri! She is very knowledgeable and engaging, and she had lots of great tips for baking at home. And my family loved the yummy results :) Thanks, Capri!
Wonderful event! I love finding activities over Zoom to bring people together. My mom & I took this cooking class together (she's in AZ, I'm in CA) and we loved Capri's cooking instruction. It was lovely to chat with the group about vintage cookbooks and other quarantine cooking ideas. Will definitely try another class soon!
Excellent class. Capri is great host and teacher. She makes the experience fun and I’ll definitely do again!
