What our students are saying about our Asian Noodle-Seaweed Salad
"YUM YUM YUM! I absolutely LOVE the flavour in this salad! I made it with wakame and it was so delicious! I used black sesame seeds and I really like the colour it brought to it, it allowed all the other colours to pop. I used sesame oil and cayenne powder. I really did not enjoy preparing the wakame though, the texture through me off. I like seaweed chopped up, but not in long strips of yuckiness! Next time I will probably just add flaked seaweed to the salad, and kelp noodles instead, I love kelp noodles. I love how all of your recipes give options, it is great for picky people like myself!"

Lasagna review: "First, it was intimidating, especially due to different techniques and maybe the time it suggested it will take to make it, but at last, I overcame the “fear” and was very happy about it. I loved the outcome: marinara sauce, ricotta cheese, all the veggies tasted great together. To describe the taste: creamy on top and in between the layers, and great crunchy texture of the vegetables due to techniques used. As a whole: simply delicious."
