The meal was delicious. I learned some techniques and recipes to apply outside of the class. Chef Douglas was welcoming and created a friendly atmosphere for the class. If you're an avid cool and want a new experience, I would recommend it. If you've never cooked before in your life, is recommend it even more.

We had an amazing meal with Doug, who was incredibly gracious and instantly made everyone feel at ease. The food was absolutely delicious, and I plan on making those dishes again! But by far, the best part of the experience was getting to cook and eat communally. My boyfriend said it was the best surprise gift ever! Thank You!

I have over 30 years of professional restaurant and cooking experience, ranging from traditional French cuisine to organic vegetarian food. I had the good fortune to study with the founders of the French Laundry for ten years which helped create my philosophy about food. I believe food should be delicious, accessible, and straightforward to create. All my classes are designed to showcase a meal students can go home and create for a dinner party or for friends.
