“Abi’s charcuterie class was phenomenal! She brought all the supplies and explained every step of the way. My friends and I learned so much. She helped us to learn different cutting techniques, about the different kinds of cheese, how much to serve and her personal approach to the placement of each item. It was a fabulous experience and I can’t wait to get started on my own board!”

Kelsey Mulvaney

“I loved being a part of Abi’s class! She was a natural teacher and explained her tricks and knowledge in a way that made me feel confident in creating my own charcuterie board. Not only was the class helpful and full of practical tips, but it provided me with many creative ideas!! Abi’s class is the best girls night activity I have had in a long time! Thank you Abi for such a fun filled experience.”
