Chef Ben is Fantastic! His class was entertaining but also incredibly informative. I really enjoyed the entire experience, not only did I learn how to make delicious mussels and homemade mozzarella, Chef also made sure I knew where to buy all of the local ingredients at the nearby farmers market so I can make at home myself! Don't miss out on this fun experience that you can duplicate at home!
