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!

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
