Chef Paul taught us so many things in a short time! We cook everything with love and passion now, thanks to him. The class was so much fun, well organized, and he provided recipes for us to keep cooking at home.

I bought this class as a present for my boyfriend's birthday and we both had a great time!! We learned so much from Chef Paul that we apply in the kitchen every day. I hope to take more classes from Paul in the future!
