Chef Denis was outstanding. He taught my wife and I so many things about the culinary world that I'm sure we'll probably forget anyway. However, we won't forget how lovely the night was while we chatted, cooked, and simply enjoyed each others' company for the few hours he was with us. Oh! And the food! Magnificent. We ordered the French meal, and he made for us the best couscous dish I've ever had. Of course, he had us help, but it was all under his control and tutelage. Thanks, Chef. You made my wife's 40th Birthday that much more special!

Denis was knowledgeable with his instructions. We learned a lot in this class! He brought items from his own garden.

Chef Denis taught us SO much, and we genuinely had a fantastic time getting to know him AND learning more about how to make pizza like a serious chef!
