Classic bait and switch which was really a let down. Had to reschedule twice even though I was choosing dates listed as available. A kitchen that can comfortably fit maybe 10 people was packed with 25. There ended up being a corkage fee announced the day before buried in paragraphs of other info for the wine/beer we were encouraged to bring in the listing or we had the option of paying restaurant prices for theirs, so $7 beers and $12 glasses of bad chardonnay it was. Throughout the 4 hours I made pasta from premade dough, butterflied chicken breast, cleaned countertops, did dishes, and kind of just stood around. Not what I’d expect for a $250/couple class. After we “cooked”, we ate two of the four courses, a normal salad and overcooked pasta with the bottom of the pot of an extremely thin sauce and left before we got to the burnt chicken piccata and some type of stewed pear dessert. I’m sure Dirk can cook but I wouldn’t call this a class so much as an opportunity to pay to make yourself a school lunch or watch others do it. Cozymeal, Dirk’s company, and the restaurant/kitchen sure are making a killing off it though.
