Great class! I loved all the extra items Chef Andy explains beyond just the dumplings you are making in the class, like how to reduce waste in your kitchen. And it was so helpful having Chef Andy check in on our progress at different steps to make sure our dumplings were a success.

Chef Andy was a pro at teaching an online cooking class! He was able to observe and comment on our skills (or those that need more practice!) and progress all the while moving the class along.

I brought in Chef Andy for the "Sushi Adventures" class as surprise for my mom's birthday and couldn't have asked for more! He was incredibly patient and helped to customize the experience for all of our favorite types of sushi dishes. He also really took the time to explain why certain techniques are important for the preparation of each dish and allowed us to walk away with a lot more knowledge regarding sushi and cooking in general (along with a ton of leftovers). He created a super relaxed environment while still making sure everything was delicious and fun. We even got to use blowtorch to add some finesse to the dishes. My mom and the rest of our family were so thrilled and had the best time cooking with him!

Chef Andy was awesome, so knowledgable and so personable! This experience was a perfect blend of cooking class, relax, and learn. I would 100% recommend this experience to anyone and I look forward to working with Chef Andy again in the future. Such a fun night!!

Chef Andy was great! He was personable, energetic, patient and overall a good teacher. My girlfriend and I loved the experience and would recommend it to anyone looking try something a little bit different. We will absolutely look to re-hiring him for future events

Chef Andy was communicative and arrived on time. He has a great sense of humor which made us very comfortable with him early on. He walked us through each step of the sushi making process and made it fun and simple. Needless to say that not only sushi turned out great but I also learned great techniques from him. I can never forget the great experience we had. I would recommend this to anyone reading this review.

Chef Andy was absolutely wonderful, fun, and personable! He made the sushi process easy and understandable for all levels. He really was a wealth of information regarding the sushi making process and other cooking techniques. I highly recommend him!

Words can’t describe how fun this experience was. Chef Andy was AMAZING & very personable - super nice. My friends and I can’t stop talking about it. I can’t recommend him enough, if you’re on the edge about booking this. THIS IS YOUR SIGN! Worth every dollar.

Chef Andy offered a great date night for my girlfriend and I. He was very personable, and made us feel comfortable throughout the evening (even as we messed everything up). Taught not only how to make sushi, but recipes, history, and techniques. Awesome experience and look forward to booking Andy again soon.

Used Chef Andy for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. I thought it would be a fun and unique experience - even more so than the usual cooking class with a bunch of other people. I can honestly say that it exceeded my expectations! We had an amazing time learning and cooking with Chef Andy. He taught us some simple tricks for presentation and knife skills as well as cleaning and using our cast iron skillet correctly. The price is comparable to going to an upscale restaurant, however the experience is one you definitely won't forget. I HIGHLY recommend this for a date night, special occasion, family get together, or girls night. My boyfriend told me this was one of the best birthday gifts he's ever received.
