    Wow, the days flew by! I had a really great time, you did a really top notch job of organizing our adventures, fitting in so many incredible sights and new experiences. The cooking classes were wonderful, not to mention, dining on the balcony with those incredible views! I will also long remember the progressive dinner night and pub-hopping in the village... Two words: Woolly bully!

    We have attended two Live Spicy cooking classes so far. Chef Ina's culinary creations were a delight for the senses, and she presented her innovative recipes and methods in a way that gave us the confidence to take them home and try them ourselves. Two foodie thumbs up!

    I have attended a few Live Spicy events in Kauai and each one has been great! The food is always delicious, fresh, healthy, and unique. The presentation is beautiful as well. Chef Ina definitely has a knack for mixing food with art!

    I don't think anything could have gone better. Ina did an excellent job and the food was delicious, as were the leftovers for the next few days. Hats off to the chef!

    Ina was a wonderful chef serving healthy and delicious meals. She met the challenge of diverse palates, including children and vegetarian. She had a long distance to drive in very inclement weather and never missed a beat. She was responsive and personable and we definitely recommend her.

    Ina provided great service and delicious food. Positive feedback from guests abounded. She helped, not only to plan the food, but gave great advice on what we could do to throw the perfect party; food and beverage choices, as well as party planning ideas. She took all the work away from us so we could enjoy mingling with our 50 or so house guests. We would definitely use her again.

    Ina was amazing! She came really early to set up, was incredibly professional, and cleaned up our kitchen before she left. In regard to the food: it was delicious! The appetizers were my personal favorite. She was a quiet presence in our kitchen who would readily answer questions without taking over the event. She even surprised us with an additional dessert at the end of the night. Overall, it was an amazing way to spend my birthday with my husband and 8 of my best friends. I hope to use her again in the future and strongly recommend her to anyone for their next special occasion.
