CHEF PASOS WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE TEACHERS

Chef Pasos was one of my favorite teachers. She was very knowledgeable and always made herself available to me whenever I needed help. She is a great teacher and I always looked forward to her classes. I would recommend her culinary classes to anyone with the slightest interest in food.

YOU WILL LEARN A LOT IF YOU TAKE THIS CLASS

Classes with Chef Pasos are always fun and enjoyable. I can assure you that you will learn a lot if you choose to take this class! I was (and am) very interested in all things baking/ cooking when I started taking her classes two years ago, and I can truly say that my skills have been sharpened, much improved, and have blossomed while taking them. Chef [Pasos] is an amazing teacher who really takes time to invest in her student's lives and help them develop their culinary skills. So whether you are taking these classes for a life skills class or for a more professional route, it is a very fun and informative class that I highly recommend.
