Chef Daniel was very personable, knowledgeable, and comfortable. He involved us in every step of the process and was more than willing to answer all of our questions. And, to top it all off, the food was delicious! We were thrilled to be able to bring home some leftovers to share with others as we bragged about the experience.

We had a wonderful time and experience at Chef’s Daniel Vietnamese Cooking Class. We met some very nice couples that contributed to the fun experience. Chef Daniel provided some awesome cooking tips while we prepared the delicious items in the course. After cooking we all sat down at the set table and devoured the delightful meal prepared by us and Chef Daniel. Thanks again for a great experience!
