Chef Erica was able to spend 1 on 1 time with us and help us learn a better technique. I enjoyed the set up and the meals. Only thing I would change is a bit more time to prepare the foods. Overall great experience, hope to do it again soon.

Erica was knowledgeable, friendly and shared great tips. Everybody got to take a turn at the main station to try out techniques under guidance. Now fancy French crepes seem within reach of an average home cook.
