Chloe from New York | Private Cooking Class

We took a private pasta-making class with Maria on our honeymoon in August 2018 in which we made two pastas, two sauces, and tiramisu. Maria is incredibly personable and knowledgeable. Everything was absolutely delicious, including the local wine that we had with our lunch once we were done making it! We learned some great tips and tricks that we are very excited to take back to our kitchen in the US. Thanks Maria!
