Chef Ivan and his team were friendly and patient throughout the whole process. It was an engaging experience and my partner and I enjoyed making the pasta dough since it was our first time. The pasta was so delicious and it was nice enjoying the fruits of our labor at the end!

I'm sure this course would have been wonderful, but for the second time in a row, I got a notification last minute saying not enough people had signed up and therefore they were canceling the class.
