We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with Chef Michael. We booked this class as an experience to share with our adult son and his wife. It was a remarkable evening making memories together. We enjoyed a brief tour of the property, and my husband was even asked to share his musical talents on the baby grand piano. The salad that Chef Michael prepared for us was delicious. Everyone raved about the flavor of the homemade pesto. We had fun learning how to make cannoli, rolling them out, and frying them. As the dessert cooled, we learned to make pizza dough. We rolled the dough and each made our own pizza. Chef Michael taught us how to put the pizzas in the oven and then rotate them as they cooked. All of the ingredients were immensely fresh and flavorful. After our pizzas were baked, we filled our cannoli and enjoyed dessert. We were all fully satisfied, and Chef Michael even sent the leftovers home with us. While the price may initially seem high, the experience combined with the high quality food made it worthwhile. We will definitely contact Chef Michael the next time we are in town.
