One of the best date experiences I've ever had. Chef did a great job making the novice chefs in the roof feel comfortable and provided an atmosphere that allowed us to make fast friends with the other couples in the class. The food was great, the recipe was simple, and the overall experience was well worth the 3 hour drive.

Had a great time with Daniel. We did the Vietnamese cooking class with just my daughter and me. Daniel was a great host. Got some hands-on experience learning some new techniques. Fried rice and wings were terrific! Lots of room to cook with great music in background. After cooking, we enjoyed a nice sitdown with tasteful place settings in spacious dining area.
