Having never taken a virtual cooking class, I was a little apprehensive. However, Gina made it easy to follow along. Preparation was key. An hour before the class I gathered the tools necessary and pre-measured the ingredients as was sent to the participants prior to the class. Once class started, it was easy to follow along with Gina's clear instruction and demonstration. My cantucci came out of the oven precisely at the same time as hers. I think having a basic knowledge of how biscotti is made definitely helps. Being able to ask questions via chat and see/hear other's comments is very helpful, as well. The interaction is fun! I'll definitely do this again.
This class was a lot of fun. I am a very experienced home cook and biscotti baker. I found Ms Tringali's class easy to follow. She was very engaging and clear with her instructions. You almost felt like you were in the kitchen with her! Her cantucci were delectable! Can't wait to make them again!
This was so fun - great way to spend a Sunday afternoon with Gina. Learn the history of Cantucci/biscotti and have something yummy at the end. Highly recommended.
