This class was exactly what I was looking for. The instructor was great. She communicated clearly and it was hands on for all participants. She took the time to answer all questions thoroughly and clearly. Frankly the best culinary class I have ever taken. Also she was very efficient with time. I am now confident in my pie crust abilities. From zero to confident in one hour! Wow! Now that's 5 Stars!!!!

It was a wonderful experience of gastronomic delight! The food was fabulous and instruction detailed and delightful. Thank you so much for a great evening!
The class was taught by a chef who has a talent for teaching. This was a lot of differet dumplings to learn and everything was organized well to give the maximum hands on opportunity , which I like in a hands on class. Any student had ample opportunity to be involved or to relax and watch the goings on. I would recommend this class.
Excellent class. Chef was very knowledgeable about Instant Cookers as well as other pressure cookers. She offered details that help understand the operation of each style of cooker and to differentiate them from one another. Everyone was encouraged to participate in the cooking experience and all the recipes were clear and easy to understand. The class was not only very informative, but also a lot of fun, with good interaction between the chef and those taking the class. There was a lot of information for those who are new to Instant Cookers as well as for those who have been using them for some time. I would highly recommend the class to anyone who is interested in cooking with pressure cookers.
The instructor (Kelly) was very friendly, informative and extremely knowledgeable about pressure cookers, both table-top and stove-top. She took the time to answer questions, go into further detail when needed, and to encourage hands-on participation. During the course of the class we prepared and/or taste tested 10 different pressure cooked foods - yogurt, chicken, stock, orange marmalade, rice, humus, polenta, risotto, vegetable sauce, and dolce le leche. We went to the class hoping to find out if pressure cooking was right for us and which would would serve us better, table-top or stove-top. We not only got our answer, but came away with a brand new 10 qt. pressure cooker! :)
I liked the session. I wish it was a little longer or multiple sessions. I would like to have learned about different knives for different operations.
Wonderful class and a lot of fun. Wished it had been a little smaller, but overall a fun afternoon!
We would prefer it if there were less people so we were able to do more cooking.
I now have confidence that I am able to can foods on my own, thanks to Chef Kelly's expertise.
Andrea T. gave this class 5 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.
