My wife and I have never experienced anything like this before, right from the moment of booking to the moment of getting there all of it was amazing. Chef Ricky and his wife Janet are the most welcoming people, caring and sweet. Very knowledgeable, we learned so much and had a perfect date! Super fun and unique experience, definitely recommended. Thank you Chef Ricky and Janet.
