While She seems like a very lovely person with a rich history of stories and recipes her personality did not come through in the class. Food was tasty, instructions lacking
While she may have great stories and numerous awards, she had difficulty articulating them and keeping on topic. The food was good & tasty!
Naomi was fabulous. The entire De Gustibus experience was beyond my expectations. Complete class act.
Enjoyable as always!
Extremely enjoyable!! Isaac is very entertaining and knowledgeable
I really enjoyed myself. Several tips will come in use. Food, a real treat. Looking forward to visiting Little Owl, soon.
Great class by pomegranate and DeGustibus cooking school never disappoints,
The host of the class interrupted the chefs throughout the class and was distracting. Every time the chef was about to say something interesting he would interrupt and ask an unrelated question. He also kept jumping in front of the chef to take pictures
