Chef Chris was very fun and informative. Food came out really well. We were allowed to do a lot of the prep and cooking. Looking forward to the next class already!

Myself, my wife and another couple decided to do this for a fun date night. While we did have fun, we did not cook. In fact we did not "Cook" a single thing. We cut all of the vegetables up for Chris to cook. It started with him making a couple types of salsa. Unfortunately, he only had about 20 tortilla chips for 6 people. We couldn't eat the salsa. There was a little awkwardness with an AIRBNB guest ordering Uber Eats as well coming through the area we were in. Finally, to making the Flan, it was already made. We were told we didn't have time to make it. In my opinion when you sign up for a "Cooking Class" you "COOK". The 6 of us did not touch a cooking device and dessert was premade or purchased. The appetizer was useless as we had not way to eat it. BTW we were told that the recipes would be emailed to us the day after. We have not received anything since.
