Working with Chef David was awesome. He has a strong background in cooking classes and it was clear that he knows how to teach! He was super professional and very fun to work with. He taught some very useful techniques that I am definitely going to be incorporating into my cooking and I also learned really interesting facts about ingredients that we were using (I have a whole new perspective on cutting peppers now!). I highly recommend Chef David for anyone in the Chicago area.
