Chef Mike’s class was so engaging and practical. I can now use a chef's knife efficiently (and elegantly!), encouraging me to cook fresh meals. I highly recommend the class for anyone who considers all the chopping and cutting in meal prep as laborious. As to Chef Mike, he's not only an extremely knowledgeable and patient teacher but also a very kind individual.

Chef Mike was thorough explaining the classic French sauces. It was fun and the time went quickly.
