  • Janine Barrett says:

    A true gastronomic experience, Elizabeth gives so much more than a cooking lesson with her wealth of experience. Today’s class was all about learning how to manage flavours, and we cooked, and we ate with a lovely group of people. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. I felt like I was back in Italy again! Thank you Elizabeth

  • elizabeth tanya salehian says:

    Far too expensive – I cook well and spend a fraction of these prices. Beefcheek with mashed potatoes and
    two or three vegetable – costs me, for one, $10.50
    I’ve priced it out meat from a quality butcher regards ET Salehian
