I booked Fusion Date Night with Chef Gustavo for my fiance's birthday - and what an incredible experience!! Chef Gustavo is a true professional, who has years of culinary experience. He taught us many techniques and the food was absolutely delicious (I'm still dreaming about the salmon!). For dessert, we made crepes, with apples and dulce de leche, and had a blast learning to pan flip them. This is a wonderful experience that anyone would enjoy. Highly recommend. We will be booking another class soon :)
