Chef Vivian was so entertaining and inviting. She was knowledgeable of the history of the food and gave tips about cooking the dishes on a regular stove top at home. She made my boyfriend's birthday so wonderful and that was the highlight of his weekend. This is great for date night!!! You will not be disappointed!

Chef Vivian started her class with showing me how to properly cut the ingredients. She was a great teacher and made sure to inform me of the safety precautions when chopping. The dish she showed me was shrimp creole. I cannot wait to create this dish again.
