Class was in tables in the patio of a brewery. I think this took away from the experience for me and wished it was held inside or a better location with an actual room, perhaps a kitchen. The rain didn’t help either because it was cold. It was hard to see at times what he was doing when he was cutting or preparing the ingredients because of bags and other materials near his cutting board. Overall, I think it just needed a better set up.
