Chef Marc fell ill the day of the class, but his lovely wife Simona was not only great about communicating AND she stepped in to lead our group. She was informative, patient and encouraging!

Enjoyed the duration of the class, it was not unduly long and was not rushed. Chef Marc was very knowledgeable and a very good instructor. He made sure we were always catch up before moving on to the next step. Enjoyed his teaching style very much.

Chef Marc was a wonderful teacher and host. Myself and my grandson were on one device, my daughter and her children were on a device in another state and my daughter-in-law and her kids were on a device in another town in my state. This cooking class allowed us to cook "together" as a family. It was fun, entertaining and informative, and delicious. We are glad we did it. Thank you, Chef Marc.

The class started earlier than the time I was given. I was told the class would start at 3:00 Eastern time and the class was over when I logged in. I called and messaged. No one has returned any of my calls or messages for a refund. I will never sign up for Classpop again.

Chef Marc made following a long really easy. He was great at moving the camera to give us up close looks. And also really helped us understand how to share our dishes in progress so that he could guide us. This was our first virtual cooking class but won't be the last. Risotto is now one of our favorite dishes. Thanks so much.
