I struggled as to whether rate this a 3 or 4 star. This was actually made for me at a cooking class I attended a few years back, and they gave copies of the recipe for us to take home, and I finally decided to try it again. It's good, liked it, but not as good as I remember at the class. The recipe is easy to make, just doesn't knock my socks off.
