Great time at Chef Ramsey’s house! Terrific menu. We all participated in the preparation of the meal. Chef Ramsey shared his knowledge with the group in a fun and friendly way. Can’t wait to do it again!

We loved the class! Chef William gave clear direction, context and demonstrations during the lesson. He made us feel completely comfortable and answered all of our questions. Added bonus, he does all the dishes! Highly recommend this class.

Chef William was wonderful! Not only did we have a superb meal, we learned SO much from cooking to even pan prep. In short, it was an incredible experience with lively and fun conversation. I have already recommended him to all my friends and look forward to booking another session in the future. My husband and I chose the French cuisine and it was better than I even imagined. We left full and smiling! Great class and experience!!
