We had so much fun. We learned interesting facts and stories related to the Victorian Christmas and where traditions came from. I learned there are no Plumbs in Plumb Pudding, and it's DELICIOUS! We also had hands on time decorating a Gingerbread House

I am delighted that you have enjoyed your experiences with A La Carte Food Tours Kitchen Clinics. You did a better job of describing Kitchen Clinics than I've managed up to this point. I hope to see you again very soon at another Kitchen Clinic.

Awful! My review very much mirrors markgU2387ZZ - we were on the same tour. To be called a "tasting tour of German Village" is beyond inaccurate; false advertising at best. There was very little tasting and it hardly resembles the tour description. Sheila, the tour...More
