What a fantastic cooking experience with Tanja!

What a fantastic cooking experience with Tanja! She guided us through the fish and green markets, sharing her insider tips for top-quality ingredients. The cooking class at her place felt like dining at a friend's home—so intimate and welcoming. The food was delicious, and Tanja's warmth and charm made it that much better!

Tanja is a true pleasure to spend the day with...

Tanja is a true pleasure to spend the day with. Her passion is evident in the meal we prepared as a group!

I loved this experience.

I loved this experience. Tanja was a delight and if I lived here full time she and I would be fast friends! I am already a pretty good cook myself, so I wouldn’t call this a cooking class as much as I might call it a local culinary experience. Loved it!
