"Tina was super charming and entertaining, and we felt very warmly welcomed into her home, even though it was only via the screen! We really loved it, and the dumplings were delicious."

"We did the khinkali class as a work event, and it was *great* (we even took advantage of all 3 languages possible). Amazing and lovely hosts, wonderful class, great experience. These dumplings were *delicious*. Very highly recommend this class--you will have a fantastic time and great recipe results."

"We made khinkalis with Tina and it was a delightful experience! We made both vegetarian and chicken version, both unique flavors and so good. Tina was very engaging, conversational and we really felt like part of her family. She was patient with us as we were a bit slower on rolling out the dough and walked us through the process. We had such a great time!!"

"Tina was absolutely delightful. Her English is excellent (fortunately since none of us speak Georgian) and she has a relaxed and friendly manner that allowed for a flowing conversation while still giving careful and attentive cooking instructions. Although the video quality wasn't excellent, Tina easily looked at our work and provided feedback. She accurately judged the pliability of my dough just by seeing how it hung when I held it up to the camera. And was spot on about the consistency of my filling even with my bowl off in the distance. I never felt like I was cooking alone."

"Our family joined Tina online to make Georgian dumplings one early Saturday morning. Making dumplings takes time. It requires proper kneading and patience and waiting for the dough to be the right consistency to achieve dumpling perfection. But the two hours flew by. During those moments between dumpling instruction, Tina introduced us to her family and her sweet dog. With her daughter manning the camera, Tina walked us through her home and property. We saw her garden and the river just below her house. We learned about the Georgian language and alphabet and folk music and dancing. Ultimately the dumpling instructions were easy to follow and our dumplings were in fact delicious (but next time I must roll the dough a bit thinner to match Tina's). But we also made friends whom we hope to meet in person one day."

"We had a great experience learning to make Georgian dumplings with Tina! She was very helpful and shared a wealth of knowledge with creative tips that lead to delicious dumplings. She also provided a special personal touch with her kids singing happy birthday to my boyfriend I was taking the class with. Definitely recommend this class!"
