didn't include all ingredients - unaffordable sadly for me to participate as I couldn't get the extra stuff

Sharna Stone Sep 2023

Lovely, intimate class with a sudden, surprise fill in teacher (sorry I missed your name).
I was a bit confused by different recipes being sent with different quantities and updated info, so my second batch was a bit soggy as I had done more prep than needed before the class, but the teacher adapted to everyone in the class. Overall, a really good class. Thank you

Max Taylor Mar 2023

Really nice class - I have managed to make potato gnocci and even sweet potato gnocci with the skills I learned and the fun gnocci paddle. Lots of fun and decent value for money.

Rebecca Spinato Jan 2023

I loved this class, it reminded me of when i cooked with my Nonna when i was young so it was really nostalgic for me. Marina gave some great tips throughout the class and the class was small enough to allow Marina to check in regularly with each person to make sure we were all on track. Would recommend this class and will be booking another.

Ciao, I’m mi chiamo Melissa.

What a great class. It was paced perfectly and was easy to follow along. I changed the sauce recipe
as I don’t like butter and sage but the Gnocchi itself was delicious.

Thanks Marina for a great dinner.

An amazing experience, the instructor was knowledgeable, friendly and guided us through when we had any questions.

They also dealt great with ASL interpreters and had alternatives for when class members may not have had all of the equipment/ingredients needed.

McRae Dunbar Oct 2021

Maria is such a great teacher, highly recommend! Made a really fabulous baked gnocchi dish.

Luci Awad Oct 2021

Amazing food and loved the results, the recipe and advice was so helpful! The instructions we were given verbally compared to the recipe differed a few times which made things confusing at times and overall, a few people got lost trying to follow along. Still a great experience but coud use a little more structure for a group as big as ours.

Jess Lay Oct 2021

It was such a great day experience. I would of never attempted to make gnocchi and it tastes so good. A great idea!

Marisa Preyser Oct 2021

That was so much fun! I thought I couldn’t cook but Marina made it easy to

Danielle Schache Oct 2021

Marina was a wonderful teacher! She helped everyone and checked up on each person individually as we went. My gnocchi could have been better but I know exactly how to improve for next time. It was a fantastic class, with a lovely teacher and great food. I would highly recommend

Megan Bohensky Oct 2021

My son & I took this class together and had a great time. Marina explained everything really well and we were able to watch what she did on camera. I’d definitely recommend this class to others.

Anna Vidot Sep 2021

Clear instructions, well explained and I even managed some decent gnocchi! Marina was a great and friendly teacher!

Whendiey Stewart Sep 2021

I absolutely loved this gnocchi class. It was easy to follow and was paced just right. I had a question before the class that I messaged through to Marina and she answered it immediately for me, making the purchase of my ingredients easy and effortless.
I now have a skill that I can transfer to the kitchen easily, and my young children aged 4 & 6 loved eating the gnocchi also. They wanted more, more, more! Winner! Thank you Marina. You provided such a lovely class with such positive, individualised feedback along the way. Highly recommended

Aniela Richards Sep 2021

Thanks Marina,
I loved this class and it was great to learn a new skill. Marina was great at explaining each step and demonstrating what we needed to do. Lots of fun and I'd definitely recommend!

Lisa Pichler Sep 2021

This class taught some tricks behind the instructions. The teacher was kind and worked with many people well. I had 3 kids in it that were teens ,which was tricky but we did it and our family of 7 loved the gnocchi, really!

Hannah Lyon Sep 2021

Loved this class! I organised to do with this with family spread out across locked down borders and absolutely loved it. not only did we get to learn how to make awesome gnocchi, but it was also a really great way to spend an afternoon together, even though we're all apart. Marina was a very attentive teacher, and took time to answer everyone's questions. the gnnochi turned out just how i liked it, super soft in the middle and crispy on the outside! it was a lot easier to make than i thought, and she took time to explain why we did each step. Loved it, and would definitely do her classes again.

We had such a lovely time taking this class. I booked very last minute as a present for my partner and Marina and her partner were very kind about it and ensured that everything was organised in time. They even delivered our package themselves despite it being a weekend with lots of traffic in the city! We learnt a lot in the class and had so much fun. We'll definitely be back! Thanks so much Marina :)

This was a great class with such a charming presenter. Marina was clear about the steps in the Gnocchi preparation and cooking. Marina was so helpful when I was not quite sure of the process - and the results showed - such fun and so delicious

Eleanor Williams Aug 2021

I really loved this class because the teacher was great. Marina showed everything to me in detail and made me really enjoy my food.

Liz Clark Aug 2021

Gnocchi making has scared me for years, but this class made me realize how easy it is. Will definitely be making gnocchi again.

Leanne Solomons Aug 2021

Marina is very passionate about making Gnocchi and took time to give everybody individual feedback. I got some good tips and certainly feel like I would be confident enough to make Gnocchi by myself next time. In the kit we received a Gnocchi board and the recipe for the Gnocchi and two accompanying sauces. I bought all the ingredients, but we didn't make the second sauce during the class~ so maybe just check with Marina beforehand about what ingredients you need to buy.
