Pros: Chef Lorenzo is a nice guy and planned a unique meal. There was plenty of food for 5 people. I enjoyed learning how to make the risotto. Cons: I wish there was more seasoning in some of the dishes. We interacted a lot but a few items were premade so we didn’t learn the techniques unless we asked about them. I would have liked more pre-class communication to know what to expect and because one of my guests had an allergy which wasn’t addressed before the class.

Chef Lorenzo began cooking at the age of 13 in his home country of Italy, and his grandmothers helped greatly with his home kitchen education. After finishing culinary school, he headed to Australia to expand his skills as chef de partie and sous chef. From there, he moved to America, where he became head chef at eateries in Miami and the Bay Area. But Chef Lorenzo's true passion is teaching others about the real Italian kitchen!
