It was great! Had a wonderful time learning, will definitely recommend it and do it again.
We had such a great experience! Thank you so much! You have totally demistify-ed biscuits and fried chicken for us. I totally recommend this to everyone!
We had a great night. We were cooking in 3 different kitchens as a Christmas present to my dad. The experience was wonderful! Yachecia was incredibly personable. She remembered all our names, she checked in on each of us before moving on, was an excellent communicator before the event. Most of all the meal was yummy!!! My whole family loved it!
