A great class! Learned a lot and really enjoyed Chef James. A great meal for a cold night!

Class was supposed to be 4:00 PT/ 7:00 ET, yet started at 4:00 ET. So I was unable to make it due to the scheduling of class pop and them having incorrect information. Luckily. I hopped on just in case to check around 4:30 ET and was able to catch half the class. Disappointed in the scheduling but seemed like a great class for what I was able to watch
