This class was great! Chef Landi showed us some great preparation and cooking techniques that we will use in the future. His menu that he created and the flavors he added were amazing. One of the best meals I have had with great company from Chef Landi who shared with us his many life experiences that has made him a great chef. Can’t wait to go back!

This was a fun event! We went with my parents and thoroughly enjoyed Chef Landi and learning to make the pasta! It was a fun and relaxed atmosphere. There was only one thing (hence the minus one star). We were hoping to learn more about making the sauce as well but while we were cutting the pasta Chef was making the sauce himself so we weren’t able to learn much for the and for the price I would think that would be included. Otherwise, so much fun and a good time had by all!
