Last night I took Chef Daniel’s “Authentic Italian Comfort Food" class and had a wonderful time. I learned a lot and cannot wait to attempt some of the recipes at home. I was always too intimidated to attempt fresh pasta but with the right tools and techniques it doesn’t seem so daunting. Chef Daniel was also very welcoming and informative. I’d love to take another one of his classes one day!

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.

Chef Daniel was very personable, knowledgeable, and comfortable. He involved us in every step of the process and was more than willing to answer all of our questions. And, to top it all off, the food was delicious! We were thrilled to be able to bring home some leftovers to share with others as we bragged about the experience.
