Chef Andy and Esme were amazing; Andy exudes a warm, easy personality, immediately making us feel at home in his class. We brought our kids aged 5-13 and he was engaging, interactive and involved our kids in every part of the class - our kids loved Chef Andy. We couldn’t recommend this class with any more confidence, and can’t wait to do another class with Chef Andy.
