"Sandra Catena is a combination of Scheherazad and a world class cooking teacher! She entered our home with infectious enthusiasm for the art and science of cooking. During class, my wife and I were held spellbound by Sandra's stories of food, family, and the origin of Southern Italian cuisine. After 2-hours, we ate a delectable 3-course dinner! We hired Sandra for two more classes that night."       Tom A.
