Chef Li was amazing!! She was so nice, she accommodated food for someone in our group who can’t eat meat, and she was so helpful! I would highly recommend taking a class with her. However, the way the ad for this class was written made us believe there would be a drink included with the purchase and there wasn’t, there were only two burners to use for cooking, and the location didn’t allow for great conversation as it was only one long table (but these aren’t anything Chef Li could control!).
