"Just wanted to say thank you for coordinating this class for us. WE LOVED IT. And Ploy was very cultured and funny, and we loved how authentic she was with her cooking techniques. We definitely will be looking to plan more events in the future. Please pass along our gratitude for hosting such a fun class. It was fun to see our CEO cheffing it up in the kitchen. Plus, everyone raved about the dumplings! :)"
