My husband and I recently attended a cooking session with Chef Ruel. From the very beginning, he made all of us feel welcome and comfortable. His apartment is super clean and organized, and the space is truly ideal for this type of event. Chef Ruel is very knowledgeable about cooking techniques, recipes and skills, yet he introduces this knowledge in an easy-to-understand format. He asked lots of questions of us, and his goal was to make the experience fun and non-intimidating. That being said, we had so much fun, the food was absolutely amazing, and we came away with many great ideas. We plan to make this exact meal for an upcoming dinner party that we are hosting for friends. I hope to take more classes with Chef Ruel!
