Chef Alejandro rocks! Simply put, he held an incredible event in our home and showed just how passionate he is about his work. He invested a significant amount of time teaching us the start-to-finish skills and tools to make beautiful sushi rolls and hand-rolls. From just this one class, we successfully navigated the entire process again on our own a week later. Whether looking just for a fun event or to learn useful skills to recreate items on your own, Chef Alejandro is your guy.

Our experience with Alejandro was amazing. Every dish was delicious and he did a fantastic job explaining each course. He left our kitchen the way it looked when he arrived. He was also very friendly - my husband and i enjoyed his company very much. We will definitely be reaching out to him again in the future.
