Excellent class. Very clear explanations and demonstrations. I liked her detailed tips to make the custard tarts the best
I have taken multiple Context Learning classes. This one was the best. Maria is so personable and so knowledgeable. She made us feel like we were good friends. She took us step by step through making the tarts. She a great speaker, no problem understanding her nor with the sound. She also included information on Port wines and a little bit about Portugal. Though my tarts didn’t look as pretty as hers, they were delicious. My husband has already eaten 4 of them. I enjoyed every minute of this class and highly recommend it.
Wonderful course! Easy to follow. Maria has a wonderful personality and a passion for cooking. Such an enjoyable afternoon session!
I had a very fun hour learning how to make the iconic Pastel de Nata today. Our instructor, Maria Lima, gave us lots of helpful hints on how to make our pastries the best. And sure enough, my wife, who has eaten Pasteis de Belem, said mine had a wonderful flavor!
Had a great time following Maria today. I am so glad that I made the dish as she was making it. I almost didn't notice the info about the ingredients but I was a lucky student when I found it ahead of time. Cooking along with Maria made a difference to me as I was able to really know how the ingredients were supposed to react. There were some items not listed that I think should have been. Such as the muffin pan, strainer and cooling rack. I had tried making a similar recipe when we returned from Porto but could never get it correct. This was great. I loved the little tips she gave as we went along.
