Let me just start with Chef Ricky is beyond amazing and attending a cooking class with him will leave you with no regrets. I surprised my husband with a cooking class date and boy was he surprised. We arrived to the address provided for the Sous Vide Cooking class and upon arrival we were a little confused being it was located in a residential neighborhood. Once we entered the location we were blown away. The kitchen was stunning and the hospitality was warming! We felt so welcomed and ready to take on the challenge in the kitchen, though it wasn’t a challenge at all with chef. Chef Ricky was great at breaking down all the steps that went into the meal we were preparing down to the science of some of the machines we used. He made it extremely fun, as cooking should be. Chefs knowledge on life it’s self was maybe my favorite part of it all. We came home with more knowledge than just cooking. Janet (chefs wife) was also fabulous. From her beautiful conversation to her above and beyond hospitality. Sending us home with hot coffee and cookies straights from Hawaii. There is no doubt that will we be booking another class with chef Ricky. We are so grateful to have had such a wonderful opportunity and experience!
