This was, without a doubt, one of the best experiences we've had as a couple. I surprised my future Hubby, as he loves to cook and he absolutely loved it. He said he can't wait to do it again. We 100% recommend this experience not only for couples Date Night, but for groups, family or friends. Both Chef Christmas and Chef Michelle as you can imagine, are very Knowledgeable and Passionate about their craft, but most of all Patient and are willing to answer any questions you may have. Their instructions and guidance during the cooking process made it a Grade A, 5 star, Top Notch experience. We want to Personally Thank both Chef Christmas and Chef Michelle for their attention to the details, making our night so Romantic.

WOW AMAZING! My dad wanted to take a cooking class for his birthday. This was better than either of us could have imagined. The way you walked us through the prep, helped us make our own spices, and the prepare the meal, was so easy and fun. The finished meal was was the best thing we have ever eaten. Thank you so much for this incredible time and experience. We look forward to the next cooking class with you.
