Chef Michael was amazing! My son and I did his Soul Food course and not only was the food incredible, but the experience was something we will never forget. It really inspired us both. Chef Michael was so helpful, patient and friendly and really took the time to explain everything in a way that was fun and interesting. I highly recommend this experience to anyone. Thank you Chef!
