Wes and I really enjoyed your class. You made it fun along with all of the perfect instructions we needed to prepare our delicious Greek dinner. My husband and I savored the extra portions you sent home with us later that night. The cheese triangles and the baklava are favorites of ours and now I will be able to make them for the family, thanks to your class. It was nice to meet you and the other students. THANK YOU!

Great company, delicious food, and, of course, WINE! I enjoyed spending the evening cooking with all of you. Thank you, Elaine, for a good time and an excellent class!
