"Maria offers an amazing cooking program!  It was a total hands-on experience making the amazing Chicken Paprikash and Yellow Bean soup with Maria's guidance.  Both dishes were awesome and I can't wait to make them at home.  We learned so much about food and Hungary in a relaxed, fun atmosphere.  Can't wait for the next course!" - Laurie Rishworth, Woodstock, 2017.
