We had a great team building event with Chef Andy, here's the some feedback from the Team members: Lisa - Chef Andy is very knowledgeable, fun, and made sure everyone is involved in the class and cared for. Michael - Chef Andy has a great personality and the cooking class was well-organized, and all of us with different levels of culinary skill learned something from the class. From an administrative standpoint, Chef Andy facilitated seamless communication and accommodation for our custom menu, even providing a vegetarian option for one of our team members. His thoughtfulness extended to sharing group photos with us at the end and ensuring that everyone had a great time. I wholeheartedly recommend Chef Andy to everyone.

Chef Andy did a wonderful job as an instructor and his home kitchen and dining area were well designed for the class and tastefully decorated. He provided excellent information and demonstrations about knife skills, prep tips, food safety and cooking styles. His kitchen, the appliances, tools and utensils were spotless and in good shape. We plan to make the turmeric chicken and grilled veggies at home - didn't realize we can grill the veggies without oil using a non-stick pan; appreciated using a small amount of oil mixed into the raw chicken with the turmeric before grilling. I've been enjoying Greek yogurt with blueberries, strawberries, pistachios and honey at home - great as a breakfast item or a light dessert as Chef Andy suggested. Thanks to the chef for a fun time - we learned a lot and also enjoyed meeting the other two people who took part in the class.

Chef Andy lead our team building activity with 25 attendees and was a great leader on our pasta-making journey. Not only was the food delicious, but he gave us some wonderful tips and tricks on how to become better chefs with ease. He's a fun presence to guide a group, and I'm confident that we'll look to book with him again if we do this event another time.
