Cooking class with Chef Ruel was a fantastic experience! My boyfriend and I attended the Spanish Tapas class right before Valentine's day. Chef Ruel had a lovely setup with all the necessary ingredients at hand. Another couple was also present for the class and we all split up to chop and prepare different parts of the meal. Chef Ruel provided some basic cooking tips as well ad advanced instruction on how everything comes together for the final presentation. We had a delightful time taking the class and really enjoyed spending the evening with the other couple, Chef Ruel, and Shelly.

My girlfriend and I booked Chef Ruel for a pre-Valentines Day (February 13th) cooking experience, and we can’t say enough about how great our evening was! We worked with fresh ingredients and took turns learning various cooking techniques, while we prepared our meal. The atmosphere was very light and Chef Ruel was very accommodating to both our dietary restrictions and our varied levels of cooking experience. At the end of the night we enjoyed a meal that I would have paid good money to be served at a fancy restaurant for Valentines Day. We’re definitely going to book another cooking experience with Chef Ruel, and we’re bringing a bunch of our friends with us. Five Stars!
