We had a wonderful evening with Chef Daniel getting all kinds of tips and instruction in making a really delicious meal. We had a lot of fun with the other guests and he did a great job explaining the ingredients and techniques and then dividing the tasks up between each of us. The meal was fantastic and the fact that we have leftovers an added bonus!

Chef Daniel was amazing, so warm and welcoming and showed us how to make a beautiful meal! He gives great tips on how do do “basic” (basic for him, that is!) tasks in the kitchen. I’d love to do it again! The meal was absolutely delicious! Homemade pasta was to die for, as was the entire meal! Thank you Chef Daniel!!
