Chef Teena was an amazing host for our team building event. Prior to the event she was very communicative and flexible to our needs. Once we got there, she quickly connected with the group and allowed us to work together with her support and direction. Everyone had a phenomenal experience and the food was fantastic!

Chef Teena was patient, encouraging, and extremely knowledgeable. Our group ranged from novice to intermediate experience, and everyone learned something new. We had to work together, which added to the team building element of the class, but she also split us into two teams, which added a competitive flavor to the class that our group really enjoyed. Plus the food was absolutely delicious!

We used Chef Teena for an event with our clients. She is simply amazing! She taught our group how to make an Indian vegetarian feast, which included some really fun hands-on elements where people were able to get involved. We had more than 20 people participate, and Chef Teena managed our group magnificently. She had a very kind and helpful staff with her, so we didn’t have to worry about anything. I would definitely recommend Chef Teena for anyone who is looking to put on a cooking class!

We hosted our small company holiday party (~15 people) with Chef Teena and her team. The space was perfect, and all of us got the opportunity to participate in different types of activities associated with learning how to cook Indian food. It was a great team building/bonding activity, and Chef Teena’s team had everything prepared perfectly. They handled our group really well, and every employee had raving reviews. I’d definitely consider booking a class with the same team again.

22 of us from Reach Analytics (a local Redwood City tech company) held a cooking/dinner party last night with Chef Teena and Chef Tony (and Teena’s Mom, and four other awesome helpers). From the planning, to the pricing, to the training, to the surprises (a prize and dessert too), to the awesome meal we enjoyed was really a great team event. Everyone was ebullient and the accolades are pouring in from the team this morning as well. We’re a very multi-cultural team and I wanted to do a party for them that would honor that and bring us together in an active way. The dinner was Indian, Mediterranean, and Japanese, so that was fitting. Thank you, Chef Teena and Chef Tony for your hard work and love of your craft.

Our team was THRILLED with Chef Teena and the food that they prepared. They came in to work this morning raving about the whole event and were really happy. Thank you so much for taking care of our folks and giving them such a great team building event. If we could get an email of the recipes that would be great - I think several people forgot to take them but would love to have a copy so they can remake the dishes at home.

I recently yelped cooking classes for our work team building event and found Explore Culinary Arts. I reached out to a few people, but Chef Teena was so great in her response time, which made me feel excited to work with her. She was able to accommodate our team of 24, which a lot of other places weren’t. Chef Teena provided us with several menu options to choose from and even said we could provide her something we were interested in if not on the options she provided. Very accommodating. Our group decided to go with an all Indian Cuisine, which appeased to both the vegetarians and non-vegetarians. She requested a 10% deposit prior to the event, which was very reasonable and payment options were very easy to work with. When we arrived at the location yesterday, it was beautiful. She had 2 tables set up for the group with wine glasses ready for us and the kitchen we cooked in was top of the line. It’s inside Atherton Appliance, which is a show room of high-end cooking appliances. Because we were such a big group, she hired a few assistants to help her as well as a special guest Chris, who showed us how to make Naan bread and Chicken Tikka. She started out with a nice ice breaker and then we were divided into several groups in stations around the kitchen. Some made chutney, some made naan, some made chicken tikka, and others made a chickpea dish. Everything was clean and fun to work in. Once we all finished, we sat down to feast on our labor. Chef Teena and her assistants all brought out beautiful plates of our meal that we prepared and served us. She provided water too. You are able to bring your own beer & wine to enjoy during the event, which we did. After we had our nice lunch, we all gathered around the wood fire oven to watch a demonstration of flambeing bananas, which was cool. We were provided with a chai tea and our dessert which consisted of a pear cake and bananas foster. Another cool thing is that Chef Teena hired someone to take photos of our entire team during the day. I haven’t seen the photos yet, but they are coming. It’s nice that we have something to help remember the fun day we had. Overall, it was an amazing day. The team loved it and it brought us all together to do something so fun. We will definitely come back to Chef Teena in the future. I would highly recommend going to her for your team building events. You will not be disappointed. A big thank you to Chef Teena and her team.
