Elle was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room setup made it easy to see her and we weren’t cramped.

Teacher was involved and helpful, and we had fun making various desserts such as panna cotta and crème brûlée. Venue could be air conditioned though, was a bit hot which may impact the pastries. Overall was a fun & informative class.
