Malik was late. Malik didn’t bring enough rice for us to make sushi rolls. Malik didn’t bring the crab meat for the sushi. Malik was not sanitizing. All that, but Malik was friendly and pleasant and we applaud him for trying to run a business but overall he needs to execute what customers are paying for. Will not use classpop again

Chef Malik created a great experience. Learned how to make pasta from scratch, along with fresh alfredo sauce, and made it very easy and fun. Chef Malik also got some taste of beer to try that would pair well with the pasta. It was an enjoyable class that I would recommend to anyone who would want to have an enjoyable experience.

Great idea and history. Acoustics in brewery made it a little difficult to hear and understand the chef, but he adjusted and tried to accommodate. Food was great and he explained some substitutions i never knew about

Chef Malik was great! Amidst all of the noise. He did a good job of going around to make sure everyone understood how to make the pasta was great fun, I just wish it wasn’t so loud- maybe in a kitchen too...

Great chef! Good event. Bad space due to venue booking an event during our class. Not the chefs fault but he made the best of it for us all.

My daughter and I enjoyed how Chef Malik walked us through the process. He explained how our pasta dough should look and how to fix a problem. My only suggestion would I would have liked a printed recipe so that we can make this at home. Will definitely look for other classes!

An unforgettable evening! Chef Malik showed us how to prepare a delicious curry using freshly ground spices. Yum!

I booked Chef Malik for my boyfriend's birthday, and we were both so impressed. He was very knowledgeable in the kitchen, and the food was stunning. Best of all, however, was Chef Malik's stories and wisdom. Will 100% recommend him to my friends.

Chef Malik — what can I say! My husband and I had a fantastic time. We won't forget this experience any time soon!

My wife and I would highly recommend Chef Malik — in fact, we've already told a number of our friends about him! Not only did we get to enjoy a fantastic meal, but we had a lot of fun preparing it with him. Thanks so much, Chef!

Chef Malik was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and a great teacher. Would absolutely recommend and are planning to book another cooking experience with him in the future!

Chef Malik knocked it out of the park with our Valentine's Day evening! We learned SO much about the science behind the foods we were cooking, the history of some of are favorite dishes (we'll never make Caesar Salad in anything but a wooden bowl again!), and about culinary techniques. Everything was delicious. We'd recommend Chef Malik to all our friends and family. We appreciate all the hard work and effort that went into making this night special.
