Food was delicious , the chef was great and the class was very informative. Atmosphere was also like walking into your grandma’s dining room for one big family dinner. Very fun!

The chefs were all knowledgeable and eager to share what they knew about not only the dishes we were making but also how to organize and run your kitchen, along with great knife skills. The food was fantastic and did not disappoint.

Chef Ivan and his team were friendly and patient throughout the whole process. It was an engaging experience and my partner and I enjoyed making the pasta dough since it was our first time. The pasta was so delicious and it was nice enjoying the fruits of our labor at the end!

I'm sure this course would have been wonderful, but for the second time in a row, I got a notification last minute saying not enough people had signed up and therefore they were canceling the class.

The event was cancelled the day before by the organizer and they have been unresponsive in returning our money for a refund for the event since we will be unable to make an alternative or the new scheduled date.

Great experience and incredible food. The chefs were patient, knowledgeable and genuinely eager to make us part of the experience.

His adventures in the world of food preparation took him through Europe and eventually brought him to New York, where he manages a catering company and volunteers teaching children's cooking classes. With a focus on sushi, Italian and French cuisines, Chef Ivan is always excited to share novel kitchen techniques with his guests and students.
