Chef Paul was great and I would highly recommend him to anyone in the NYC area looking for a cooking class. He is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He took his time explaining his reasoning behind each step of the process to help me understand exactly why he was using certain ingredients and techniques. It is very obvious how experienced he is and he was happy to answer any and all questions I had throughout the entire class. The venue is beautiful and there is a lot of room to spread out. I am looking forward to working with Chef Paul again next time I am in the area!

I wanted to do something special for my wife for her birthday. Instead of getting her something she didn't need I decided to do an experience based gift. After the private class with Chef Paul she said this was the best birthday gift she had. I highly recommend doing a private class with Chef Paul. We really enjoyed this experience and can't wait to do the next one!

Chef Paul was fantastic. This was my third visit (that alone speaks volumes) to Miette but most recently in April 2021, my wife and I took her parents here as a Christmas gift. The food was fantastic - Chef Paul was engaging, educational and fun. The safety precautions were very sound. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun night out in NYC.
