Exceeded expectations. Aleck was great with incorporating the herbs and spices we're particular to and in clearly explaining each step. He got us involved immediately and gave us insights into how a restaurant kitchen works. Such fun!

We really enjoyed our experience with Chef Aleck. I found and booked this cooking class with Aleck because he specializes in plant based cooking, and we were going to be visiting New Orleans with my family. My dad transitioned into a predominantly vegan diet in the last 2 years and while I wanted to learn some new vegan dishes I also wanted to enjoy the local creole flavors and requested changing up our menu a bit. I really appreciated how accommodating Aleck was to my request. I’ve done a cooking class at a culinary institute so I thought this would be a fun birthday experience as we scheduled it on my birthday. The personalized and tailored lesson was really fun and Chef Aleck helped inspire us with some new and creative dishes we are excited to make in our own kitchens! The 3 of us that did the lesson all cook frequently in our own kitchens, but I think we all still learned a few new things which was my hope! My dad who usually prefers to learn on his own and was skeptical of the experience also really enjoyed the whole thing, which I think is a testament to Aleck’s proper planning and flexibility to the clients. I really appreciated how budget conscious Aleck was and he talked through all the changes with me and how he could try to work within our budget. This was a really fun experience that I would totally do again, and recommend to others! One of my favorite parts was that Chef Aleck basically cleaned everything for us which really made the experience feel more fun & informative and less like work!! While we enjoyed the fruits of our labor from the first 2 dishes, Chef Aleck was cleaning up the kitchen before our next course and had the entire kitchen clean and all the leftover ingredients organized and put away. It was so nice! It was like hiring a private chef but you also got to learn and be hands on with him, too.
