Chef Robert is a talented chef who had training in Italy learning things such as homemade pasta making. He has a sense of humor that makes his classes very enjoyable to be a part of. A great piece of advice I learned from him was to invest in several cookbooks and try new things! He gave me the confidence I needed to explore more in the kitchen.
