What a fun afternoon. As enjoyable to make the paella, was being in the experience from others from different countries. Alberto is a great instructor and with a small group was able to check each one's progress throughout so no one was left behind.
Paella class with Alberto was amazing.
He is not only taught us how to make seafood paella, but also provided interesting information about different products and culinary techniques that we definitely will use.
The online gnocchi class with Alberto was a fun, tasty, interesting, and was a great opportunity to celebrate a family event from far. Thanks again and all the best!
