At the outset, I would like to thank Chef for hosting us and making time, however, the experience was far from joyful. We love food, both cooking and eating, and were really looking forward to this class as a celebration for our anniversary. Taste, ambiance, hospitality, recipe, technique - i wasn't impressed with anything. 1. There was very little involvement from the participants. 2. The raspberry coolie was made halfheartedly and that's why it tasted really bad 3. Everything that we made did not taste good. I am a huge fan of desserts and we try different ones from different bakeries. 4. We were standing throughout, which is totally okay when we cook. I feel hospitality says that we sit down at least when we are eating. 5. The two other participants were nice and jovial. That was what kept the atmosphere alive. I am sure Chef has done some great work in life and full respect to that. But hosting a cooking class calls for a different skill set.

This was a birthday present for my fiancee, she loves baking and creating a layer cake would add a new level to her baking. Chef Jean Yves exceeded all expections. He brings 46 years of experience where it's not just about the recipe and measurements but technique and feeling. He is truly a gem!

A truly wonderful experience! I took my 10 year old niece to a chocolate baking class with Chef Jean Yves and she was simply delighted. He was so patient with her and spoke to her like she was a confident adult, rather than a kid.... and in turn, it made her more confident. She was so proud to share what she learned with her parents and loved having the family taste the delicious chocolate torte she made!

I did the lava cake and floorless chocolate cake with my girlfriend. Chef Jean was highly entertaining, and the desserts were delicious (coming from a guy who is picky about sweets). We had a lot of fun with him, and would highly recommend this experience!
