My wife and I arrived at Cristina's apartment and from the very first moment, we felt like we were good friends. Cristina immediately made us feel welcome, shared stories about her family and was interested in hearing about ours. She has a very genuine quality and a passion for people, it showed. Cristina had planned out an awesome menu of chestnuts, kale soup, baked bacalao, and a baked ricotta dessert, along with wine and cordials. Her instructions were easy to follow and the meal was excellent. As we ate and talked, time flew by so quickly that we never realized we were there for four hours. We are now friends on Facebook and intend to stay in touch. It is remarkable how such a short amount of time can have a long lasting positive impact. I highly recommend it.
