Don was wonderful! He was a brilliant host, did a great job getting our teenage boys involved. He showed us lots of great pasta making techniques and provided practical tips. The food was beautiful, and the night was a lot of fun. Highly recommend Don.

Chef Don provided my partner and I with an exciting twist to modern Italian cuisine. The lesson was brilliant, entertaining whilst learning new cooking skills. I highly recommend couples, or groups of friends who share the passion of cooking to give it a go!

Chef Dön is a force of nature. His class was super entertaining and besides learning about Sri Lankan Food and how to make some delicious, authentic dishes I also had a lot of fun!
