Last night I took Chef Daniel’s “Authentic Italian Comfort Food" class and had a wonderful time. I learned a lot and cannot wait to attempt some of the recipes at home. I was always too intimidated to attempt fresh pasta but with the right tools and techniques it doesn’t seem so daunting. Chef Daniel was also very welcoming and informative. I’d love to take another one of his classes one day!
