This class was a gift. Everyone enjoy their experience. I enjoyed the bread samples they brought home from the class.

Loved this class! The teacher was super knowledgeable and the facility was perfect. I would recommend it to both a total beginner and medium beginner - reva made it relevant for everyone.

Reviewed by Dana Z. on 9/14/2019
Not sure if it was just the group of students I was with but no one seemed comfortable asking questions. There were a few instructors there, maybe would have been good to have one stationed at each table to facilitate discussion/questions. Overall learned a good amount and took home a weeks worth of fresh bread!

Reva was great, we're almost certainly taking another class.
Bread: Basics
Reviewed by Michalene M. on 4/8/2019
The oven was not woking properly causing the instructor to become flustered and the buns not to be properly done and unable to be taken home as the class ended. The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided high level info. She was very competent and self assured. The acoustics were poor and I missed a lot of dialogue. I am open to attending more classes given by her. I will give the oven a chance to be fixed. Lastly, no recipes have arrived in my email, as promised. Enthusiasm is greatest directly after the class.
