Great class! It's a good balance of time spent doing each part of the meal prep and actually practicing some knife skills. Don't expect a bootcamp on knife cutting, but you get 15-25 or so minutes to practice, can ask for assistance, and get some quality advice/tips/tricks to take home and hone in your knife skills. If you have a good group, it's a great time. The instructor was super friendly/helpful and I'd definitely recommend the class.

Intimate and elevated home style experience. 13-10 would recommend for couples and small groups of 6 or less. We’ve been twice and Ivan has been thoughtfully attentive with each experience.

Chef Ivan provided a great experience from start to finish. He had a beautiful set up that was clean and spacious. I appreciated his attention to hygiene, he was very knowledgeable and helpful during the courses. It was a super fun way to spend a Saturday morning! I would definitely recommend his classes and am looking forward to checking out others.
