Maria Lima is an enthusiastic, clear, and practical cooking teacher. She knows her stuff, loves the subject, and gives excellent instructions. In just over an hour I learned a new pastry-making technique, made custard and baked a set of the most delicious pastries I've ever eaten. I will definitely add these to my repertoire, and I would love to take more classes with Maria Lima! And now I really want to go to Portugal, too. The education about port was also terrific, and I was only sorry I didn't have any on hand to pair with my tarts. I'll have to make another batch, because these aren't going to last that long.... In short: brava and YUM!
Maria is delightful and easy to follow. My tarts were perfect! I enjoyed the experience.
anyone who has visited Portugal has probably eaten a Pastel de Nata! The opportunity to learn to bake them from an expert allows me to taste the memory and share it with family and friends. Maria was an excellent teacher, not only with the actual techniques, but with the history of the pasties ! Mine turned out ugly, but tasty. Now I can work on perfecting them
It was easy to follow along with her, and the product was great! I loved learning about Portugal and Porto
Maria is awesome! She had great energy. She was very knowledgeable and patient. And at the end of the class I had delicious Pastel de Nata to eat!
