Overall was a fun class. A couple things I would consider. First, make everyone wash their hands or provide gloves. The fact that we got anyone’s pasta is just gross. Did they wash their hand?. There were a lot of people in the class, also we were starving by the time 9 pm rolled around. Just was too many people with too much going on. Sucked that some had to leave because it was getting too late and went home hungry. I would have loved to been involved with the making of the pasta sauce. Or been asked to come up and watch. It wasn’t as involved and defeats the point of learning to cook. Which is why I took the class in the first place.

I was very disappointed in this experience. Way too many people for the class. Crowded and in a loud environment and you could hardly hear Chris speak. Lead to believe we would be making the sauces. Had to share ingredients with 2-4 other people and out of 3 hours, had about 15 mins of actual hands on time. Didn’t even eat our own pasta. My friend had to leave before even eating. Nothing was printed and we were expected to email him to get the recipes. Totally NOT a cooking class. Ridiculous for the price. We got a scoop of pasta at the very end, after the brewery was closing down. So many other things. I planned to make a post about the amazing night, I was really looking forward to it, and was so frustrated and upset by the end, didn’t even share photos. 0/10 recommend.
