I bought this class as a present for my boyfriend's birthday and we both had a great time!! We learned so much from Chef Paul that we apply in the kitchen every day. I hope to take more classes from Paul in the future!

Chef Paul was very knowledgeable and funny! I have a little bit of experience cooking and I still took a lot away from this class. He very thoroughly answers any questions you have and is patient and encouraging. I will definitely go back for another class!

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.
