My son and I took the water kefir class and had a blast. Barbara is a great teacher and had an amazing variety of flavor combinations for us to create and taste. Our kefir grains have tripled already and we now have an endless supply of fresh kefir at home. We highly recommend taking any of Barbara's classes if you hope to expand your knowledge on how to make great tasting food that will nourish your body. Tracey and Tanner
