Such a delightful evening and we could not have asked for a better instructor than Chef Paul! Chef Paul was patient, his instructions were given with a genuine delight and interest in you learning the techniques that will change the way you cook for the rest of your life. The entire experience will help to make you more comfortable and it gives you a sense of confidence in using a knife (several actually lol). There are lessons, tips and small tricks that you will learn that are helpful in the preparation of cooking any meal and in awakening your taste buds and those of your guests. You will learn to cook healthier! I was definitely a novice and there were others that were on my level but the entire group was patient with one another and Chef Paul was patient with all of us. Our group was an inquisitive crowd. At the end you enjoy the meal that you prepared and we spoke about the new techniques, life, the Olympics and so much more. You leave the entire experience feeling fulfilled and accomplished in the kitchen. It was my first experience and it exceeded my expectations and that of my friend. THANK YOU PAUL (Not sir or Chef lol!) FOR SUCH A DELIGHTFUL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE EXPERIENCE.
