Chef Dirk was lovely and very communicative, however many of the items were pre-prepared and it felt somewhat disorganized.

This was one of the most fun nights out I've had in a long time, not to mention one of the best meals! Chef Dirk is an energetic, personable host and an outstanding cook. He was fully prepared, and once we arrived, we were off and running. Over the next 3 hours, we prepared and enjoyed several courses, each as delicious as the last. I'm inspired to try some of these recipes at home to try share with friends. Highly recommended!
