"My girlfriend’s been wanting to get into pasta making. I got her a pasta maker for her bday and wanted to supplement it with pasta making lessons. I put a request out to Thumbtack for someone to come over and teach us a few pastas/sauces using her new machine. I received a message from Zac with an overview of his background and willingness to be our teacher. He was professional and responsive throughout the entire process. He even went the extra step of researching the machine I purchased so he could make an informed decision on pasta/sauce options. After providing us multiple options, we decided to go with fettuccini, tagliolini (both were compatible with the pasta maker), a light garlic/lemon/white wine cream based sauce, and a Bolognese. As an added bonus, he taught us how to make ravioli and whipped up a delicious sauce on the spot. Not only was Zac a great teacher (I can confidently say we can make pasta on our own) but all the food was super delicious! Most importantly, my gf loved the gift! Zac was instrumental in making the night a success. He took the time to understand my vision and how I wanted the evening to go. He was prepared with all the supplies/ingredients, provided ample time for the pasta making and sauces, and cleaned up afterwards. Zac's a super friendly guy and it was fun having him around to teach us. I would recommend him to anyone."
