clear and concise
This course was a fantastic use of my time. The instructions were clear and informative. I do not generally enjoy cooking due to my lack of skills and therefore have been seeking to build any kind of kitchen skills I can. This course left me inspired and confident I can get good at this!
very useful and great explanations!
