Chef Dirk’s sophisticated French cooking class was so much fun. Chef does a really good job in making sure everyone participates in the process and he is very welcoming.

Chef Dirk was super fun and we all had a great time. I would have liked the recipes printed up for us at the time of the class. Also, we paid an extra $650. for the space and we ate on plastic plates with plastic forks.
