"Chef Joni was amazing!! 110% recommend taking her cooking. My boyfriend and I took her paella class and boy was it fun! We had her come to our home to help us celebrate our 4 year anniversary. We started with the cheese platter which tasted amazing and she taught us what goes well together and definitely introduced us to amazing products! Then we moved on the sangria to sip throughout the night. She taught us so many new skills especially with cutting, which was something new for the both of us. Chef Joni was energetic and knowledgeable about cooking and we had such a memorable time with her. After getting the paella pretty much done we decorated and platted our dessert which was a blast, we definitely got to be creative with this part and the dessert was so yummy. Overall we loved every minute of our time with CHef Joni and would definitely take another one of her classes."

"My wife and I had a great experience with Chef Joni. We had to move the date a couple of times due to the COVID situation and as things started reopening, we finally were able to meet with Chef Joni for a Thai dinner cooking class and celebrate my wife's belated birthday. Chef Joni provided a COVID-safe environment and followed the physical distancing guidelines. The class was well organized, and the whole atmosphere was very relaxed with quiet background music and kitchen/dining area perfectly designed to put you in the right mood. The food was delicious, chatting with Chef Joni was very interesting, she gave as great tips about cooking aids and ingredients, and she took us for a tour in her wonderful garden where she grows different herbs and vegetables. It felt as a special event and we highly recommend!"

We had a wonderful Thai cooking class with Chef Joni for my husband's birthday. She made it a really special occasion. The recipes were delicious, and she gave us a lot of great tips on where to buy ingredients and how to make the dishes at home. Her cooking studio was perfectly set up for the class. Would highly recommend!
