It truly was a “cozy meal” in the comfort of Chef Mario’s home. Felt the menu was delicious and authentic Valencia’s cuisine. I signed up for this to do something different for my boyfriend’s birthday and he is not a cook by any means. It was great to cook together and have him learn some easy cooking tips. I think I would maybe make a different appetizer since the potatoe salad with paella was really heavy. The paella was the best I’ve EVER had. I enjoyed the crepe dessert which I think was my dates favorite. Chef Mario was accommodating, professional and engaging. Overall fantastic evening and would recommend to anyone. Heading to Italy and BF is setting up a cooking class in Rome. I think he has the cooking “bug”

Chef Mario was awesome. Explained the techniques well and made the evening a very fun and educational experience. I am a non-cook and totally enjoyed the evening. The salad, paella and crepes tasted amazing. I highly recommend Chef Mario and the paella experience
