Such an incredible cooking experience!! This was truly such a unique night and we learned so much about South Indian and Soul Food and about their influences. The hosts were super knowledgeable and welcoming, and the food that we made was really tasty! 10/10 would recommend
A must have experience

An experience everyone should have. The host & hostess were interesting,& had a extremely welcoming personality. Kylie was very organized with the cooking class. The food was delicious, an Indian shrimp dish & a Caribbean rice & bean dish both outstanding. You even get the recipes to cook at home. The best chai tea ever
Excellent experience
