Monica is warm, welcoming and generously shared her cooking knowledge taught to her by her father. I really appreciated the detailed ingredient list and recipe method sent to participants. In particular, the suggested substitute ingredients as we don’t have ready access to specialty Asian grocery stores.
Monica made the learning fun and relaxing and I never felt rushed. She demonstrated techniques and explained each step as we progressed through the recipe. She was great when we made some mistakes in our cooking along the way, quickly suggesting solutions and making us feel comfortable and able to laugh about it.
The end result was a delicious chicken and prawn Laksa soup which transported me back to my time living in Darwin. Where every Saturday we visited the Parap market to savour this wonderful Malaysian dish.
Thank you Monica for this fun and positive learning experience. To anyone who is thinking of taking this class – I highly recommend it!
