Chef Mert is fantastic! We took his beginners course and he really takes the time to explain and answer every question you have. He explained the thinking behind the cooking to get things just perfect, which I really appreciated. He is a very polite and chill person; very easy and fun to talk to! Also so knowledgeable in different cuisines and restaurants local to the area. 10/10 experience I can’t recommend highly enough!!
