    Very informative. While a bunch of topics to cover in a fairly short period of time, I felt like Chef’s presentation was fabulous and she took the time to answer questions and explain the techniques such that it didn’t feel rushed at all.

    Reviewed by CAMILLE W. on 12/15/2020
    I have taken 3 classes so far with this instructor. She is thorough and runs a great class. I have learned several complicated baking techniques from her including croissants and have expanded my skills considerably.
  • Hands-On Donut Boot Camp

    Great teacher, nice location with plenty of space to work and you get to really do all steps of donut making yourselves.

    It was a fresh new experience for me. The instructor was very knowledgeable and explained everything step by step. It was a very laid back environment so there was no pressure.
  • Pies, Tarts and Crostatas

    Anonymous review on 8/27/2017
    The class was excellent! I actually no longer feel intimidated at the thought of making my own pie crust for a sweet or savory pie. Each student left with a blueberry pie, 1 or 2 pieces of a savory tart, and an individual crostatas all made in class.

    I'm very thankful for what the chef taught me yesterday. As being an overseas attendee, I couldn't catch up every single word the chef said, but I did pay full of my attention to her. She is such a brilliant chef. Of course a teacher, too. BTW, I went through the recepe and looked up the dictionary right after I got back to the hostel, I even can't remember when the last I STUDIED SO HARD. It could be a century ago. Thanks Chopping Block. Thank you, chef!
