Success Stories a.k.a Food for Thought:-)

We used Chef Teena for an event with our clients. She is simply amazing! She taught our group how to make an Indian vegetarian feast, which included some really fun hands-on elements where people were able to get involved. We had more than 20 people participate, and Chef Teena managed our group magnificently. She had a very kind and helpful staff with her, so we didn’t have to worry about anything. I would definitely recommend Chef Teena for anyone who is looking to put on a cooking class!

I’m a professional chef working in San Francisco, I’ve been taking recurring classes with Teena independently to further educate myself in Indian Cookery. I’ve learned a bunch from Teena since starting class and i would highly recommend taking her classes whether you’re an experienced cook or brand new to the kitchen. The pacing of the class is always perfect and the food is all delicious!

Chef Teena was patient, encouraging, and extremely knowledgeable. Our group ranged from novice to intermediate experience, and everyone learned something new. We had to work together, which added to the team building element of the class, but she also split us into two teams, which added a competitive flavor to the class that our group really enjoyed. Plus the food was absolutely delicious!

Chef Teena was an amazing host for our team building event. Prior to the event she was very communicative and flexible to our needs. Once we got there, she quickly connected with the group and allowed us to work together with her support and direction. Everyone had a phenomenal experience and the food was fantastic!

My wife and I had a fantastic private cooking class with Teena. The recipes were delicious, and Teena is an amazing teacher. We strongly recommend taking classes with Teena, and will likely do so again.

Tony and Teena prepared the venue with care and had a whole 5 course menu laid out for our team. Although there were 4 sub cooking teams do to the size of the group everyone worked together and created a fantastic meal. It was easy to jump in and do things under the eyes of experts that you wouldn’t have dreamed of doing before.

We were so excited about our cooking class with Chef Teena. Both of us have long been curious about Indian Food but the recipes in our Indian cookbooks were so overwhelming. Teena’s recipes were easy to follow yet the flavors were so intense. Her preparation made everything so simple and we particularly liked how familiar we were with all the spices by the time we left. She also explained how we can make simple substitutions at home when lacking some of the more obscure ingredients. We can’t wait to replicate her recipes at home. Once again, we would highly recommend Teena’s classes!

Our team was THRILLED with Chef Teena and the food that they prepared. They came in to work this morning raving about the whole event and were really happy. Thank you so much for taking care of our folks and giving them such a great team building event. If we could get an email of the recipes that would be great - I think several people forgot to take them but would love to have a copy so they can remake the dishes at home.

Our team went for a team building event. Chef Teena was able to incorporate a chicken curry into her class to satisfy some meat eaters, and help celebrated a team member’s birthday. She made amazing and authentic Chai for everyone, the location is easy to get to, high end appliances. Our team had a great time, highly recommend.

We hosted our small company holiday party (~15 people) with Chef Teena and her team. The space was perfect, and all of us got the opportunity to participate in different types of activities associated with learning how to cook Indian food. It was a great team building/bonding activity, and Chef Teena’s team had everything prepared perfectly. They handled our group really well, and every employee had raving reviews. I’d definitely consider booking a class with the same team again.

22 of us from Reach Analytics (a local Redwood City tech company) held a cooking/dinner party last night with Chef Teena and Chef Tony (and Teena’s Mom, and four other awesome helpers). From the planning, to the pricing, to the training, to the surprises (a prize and dessert too), to the awesome meal we enjoyed there...it was really a great team event. Everyone was ebullient and the accolades are pouring in from the team this morning as well. We’re a very multi-cultural team and I wanted to do a party for them that would honor that and bring us together in an active way. The dinner was Indian, Mediterranean, and Japanese, so that was fitting. Thank you, Chef Teena and Chef Tony for your hard work and love of your craft.
