I had a wonderful time and am anxiously waiting for our galette to reach room temperature. Mardi is a delightful teacher who helped me to feel relaxed and competent.
Mardi is well-organized, easy to follow and has delicious recipes. And makes the class fun and interesting.
I enjoyed the class and Mardi was very helpful and clear in her directions. My galette looked amazing when it came out of the oven but next time I would be more careful to heed Mardi’s warnings of what to be careful not to do.
I would have liked to have received the ingredients and the full recipe sooner than was provided for this class. It takes time to collect the ingredients and be comfortable with the recipe.
Thank you for organizing this special Zoom cooking class.
Mardi was engaging, very clear with the instructions and made the recipe easy to follow. I will definitely be trying to make a Galette on my own!
Excellent guidance though out the event (didn't bake along) with having confidence to try it on my own. The almond filling sounds Devine.
