The class was awesome, the recipe turned out great! Only reason I took off a star is because it was pretty fast paced, and the recipe was half in metric system (grams) and half imperial (cups, ounces) which made it tough to measure quickly. My husband and I did this together and it was necessary to have an “assistant” to get these things together while he was doing the main cooking.
