Jodi worked with our law firm on short notice to accommodate our team of 12 for tapas and wine, incorporating fun competitions and providing solid recipes that were manageable for everyone. Definitely more fun than a stuffy dinner. The views from her location were beautiful.

Jodi is so talented! The food we cooked was amazing. She was such a wonderful host and taught the 6 of us some wonderful skills. My boyfriend and I have already made some of her recipes (the eggplant rollups are one of our favorites)! We highly recommend taking this class with Jodi. She will not disappoint!!
