I had heard positive things about this experience from previous remotes and it didn't disappoint

I had heard positive things about this experience from previous remotes and it didn't disappoint. Shaamiela is wonderful - it was so nice getting to know her and learn about her life experiences. We were told we'd do very light cooking, and I'm actually glad we did slightly more than I was anticipating. The food was delicious and it was overall a very unique experience that you couldn't necessarily find a replica of through a different vendor.
