Authentic and Wonderful! (by Katherine, Cookly)
"We had a fabulous time at Lily's Secret Garden Cooking class! [...] The market tour is very personable and we could learn the different fruits/veggies we saw in the market, how much they should cost, etc. At their lovely home, chef Darwin taught us how to prepare three dishes [...]. We all (we are a family of 4) really enjoyed this fun, hands on, experience and our food was delicious, ample and authentic. I would HIGHLY recommend this class, BOOK NOW!"
