The class was great, maybe a little more time to cut if you’re cutting the whole portion for recipe. Learned good knife skills and enjoyed the recipe.

He’s amazing 😉 great class - We enjoyed so much!! Thank You Chef Chris 🙏🏼

20 Sep 2020

He never showed up for the class. Am I getting a refund? When?? He doesn’t get any stars. What weren’t we sent a cancellation notice?

18 Sep 2020

I did give this no stars if I could. Chef Chris never showed up for the class. Waste of time and money.

16 Sep 2020

I purchased this class as an anniversary gift for my parents. They enjoyed the class. I was disappointed to hear that they purchased all the ingredients on the list, only to have the chef skip one of the recipes. They are left with unused ingredients they are unfamiliar with.

13 Sep 2020

Great class. Chris went at a good pace and answered all questions as they came up. Definitely glad I took it

13 Sep 2020

It was my first time making pasta from scratch and participating in a virtual cooking class. It was for my bday weekend. I had fun! Chef Chris was pleasant and helpful.

13 Aug 2020

Was fun and learned how to make fettuccini snd a couple of great sauces!

12 Aug 2020

Such a fun and delicious time!

28 Jul 2020

Chef Chris was an excellent teacher! My internet dropped for about 5 minutes and he quickly recapped what I had missed, quickly bringing me up to speed. I look forward to doing more classes with Chris!

27 Jul 2020

It was a great class! My only complaint is that we had to stay on mute due to echoes. Several of my coworkers signed up as a way to spend an evening together, but we couldn’t talk.

26 Jun 2020

Great class! Chef Chris was great. He gave us a little background history on where some of the food we discussed came from.

22 Jun 2020

Great instruction, clear and precise, delicious Ravioli, made again two days later!

21 Jun 2020

Chef Chris was great. Made it very easy to learn.

19 Jun 2020

The class was well-organized and Chef Chris was easy to follow. He answered questions and gave tips along the way as well as at the end. The food turned out delicious. My family loved it!

19 Jun 2020

Good class but I was confused about the amount of filling to dough.

13 Jun 2020

The class was cute and a fun idea, but the instructor Chris was disappointing. He didn’t instruct us to leave our eggs out at room temperature before the class began, which led to his pasta dough being much different from ours and several of the other participants which was a huge factor throughout. He also flew through many of the steps very quickly, used some ingredients that weren’t on the list, didn’t use some ingredients that were on the list, and didn’t ever actually cook/finish the dish with us (the class ended before that).

10 Jun 2020

Chris did a great job,explained things clearly , allowed time for questions and was easy to follow. My only criticism was that I thought the class was an hour and it was two hours

09 Jun 2020

Excellent class! Great food

07 Jun 2020

Chris was very knowledgeable, and it was easy to follow along! I bought this class for my mom for Mother's Day, and we did the virtual class together. It was a great way to spend time together!

07 Jun 2020

It was a great class; I learned a great deal about making pasta! It’s a lot of work. Chris was great taking all questions gracefully. I felt hesitant to ask questions taking so many other people’s time but was glad to hear others questions that I wondered too. Thank you it was a delightful class.

06 Jun 2020

Highly recommended class. The class is engaging. Chris managed to respond to all the questions and to pay attention to the needs of each participant. The ravioli are delicious. Thanks Chris.

16 May 2020

I did not like the class. It was my first time making raviolis and I did not have the proper trained to make it . I was frustrate and loss all my ingredients

10 May 2020

Great class!

10 May 2020

Thank you so much it was a wonderful class! They turned out so good!

20 Feb 2020

Had a great time!

04 Feb 2020

Chef Chris did a great job leading a group of mixed experience to a successful and delicious result! Thank you!

14 Jan 2020

Chef Chris is very personable and knowledgeable and did a great job managing our 15 person team. He walked us through the process, gave us tips on both cooking there and cooking at home and shared his experiences and knowledge. The pasta and sauces were very good and the team really enjoyed interacting and having fun. Venue at a brewery was also good with Chris providing "beer breaks". Reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because we scheduled for 6:30-8:30pm but didn't start until after 7pm and didn't eat until after 9pm.

Chris was a revelation. We went into this experience not knowing what to expect and were so happily surprised. Had no idea a cooking class could be so much fun! He was part of the experience, he was incredibly knowledgeable, and great company. Along with this the food was incredible. Suggest a million times. Will go again and bringing friends.

17 Oct 2019

Chef Chris was both friendly and knowledgeable. He made learning the techniques a fun experience that will stay with us. Thanks for a great time!

17 Oct 2019

Chef Chris was awesome. This was a surprise date for my wife. The food was great, the experience was hands on and Chef Chris was very engaging. Will definitely do this again.

17 Oct 2019

Chef Chris is professional, knowledgeable, and so friendly! You can tell he is passionate about what he does and it shows in his skills, how he teaches, and the food! We had the best date night in taking his cooking class - I would recommend him to anyone!

17 Oct 2019

Great class. Chris is very engaging. Fun way to meet some new people. Food was excellent!

17 Oct 2019

My husband I had a wonderful time. So much so that when it was over I was surprised the time had passed. The food was fun to make. Miracles really do happen. This was a Christmas gift from my husband and he got a lot of points :) What a great gift. I look forward to doing it again.

17 Oct 2019

This was a great experience! Would not hesitate to book again. Delicious food and Chris was so helpful and personable. I've taken a few cooking classes in the past but this is the first one that has inspired me to go out and buy new kitchen equipment in order to replicate the delicious food we had.

17 Oct 2019

Chris made learning so easy and fun!

17 Oct 2019

This was a great experience for me and my co-workers. I don't really like tomatoes, pasta, or coffee, YET I ate everything single thing we made because it was absolutely delicious. I never knew how good homemade bruschetta, spaghetti, and tiramisu could taste. Chris broke the recipes down so well that I feel confident I could go home and do all of it myself. I learned so much from him and can't wait for our next class with Chris.

17 Oct 2019

Cooking with Chris was a great experience... From the cooking, the conversation, the atmosphere and overall experience... Everything was phenomenal. He gave us a great experience and an amazing memory. He definitely knows what he is talking about and we plan to cook with him again.

17 Oct 2019

Chef Chris was VERY knowledgeable about his craft and educating us on the food, preparation and even the rich history of the food’s origin! He was very courteous and patient with those who do not cook. He guided us through several hands-on tasks, ensuring that we enjoyed the event. He even took care to ensure our dietary needs were met. The BEST part was that the outcome was a delicious meal our team enjoyed eating :-) We had an amazing time and would definitely recommend.

17 Oct 2019

We really enjoyed our experience with Chef Chris. It was an intimate setting so everyone could learn from it. Chris was extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions thoroughly. I also like the style of teaching where we're not taught to just follow a recipe, but instead taught to cook by scent and taste. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and plan to return again. Thanks!
