Words cannot express the fun we had tonight. We've never done anything like this as a family. It was truly a memorable experience as we all left feeling so happy. Your kitchen is so warm and inviting and you and your team are amazing!!!! I already wrote a review on Yelp as well. We will definitely be back to do another event. Thank you for everything. I can't wait to make Caesar salad! The best EVER. Kind regards, Ruthayn Shalom

After receiving his culinary arts degree, he worked in several restaurants in Belgium, gaining experience and insight along the way. He moved to NYC in 1983 and quickly became the executive chef at well-known restaurants in Tribeca and the West Village. His passion for teaching led him to open his own cooking school in 2001, which is still thriving today.
