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.

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.
