We joined Chef Melissa for the Treasures of Taiwan cooking experience. She was super energetic, passionate about her craft, and attentive to any questions during the entire 2 hour class. She covered knife skills, tasting ingredients, spices, baking, and more. Melissa was clearly very dedicated to making sure guests had a great time. The menu was fairly straightforward which was a good fit for less experienced chefs like ourselves. We would definitely recommend this experience and return for another one!
