Chef Jean Yves was very entertaining, knowledgeable, and attentive to detail. He explained several baking techniques and the reasons behind them. He taught us with humor, which made the class so much fun! Not only did we learn how to make a Bûche de Noël, we also learned how to make a cake carrier from a cardboard box. I would definitely take a class from him again.

Chef Jean Yves is amazing! My son and I took his lesson on the classic, traditional Christmas Yule log. Chef Jean was very gracious, and generous with his knowledge. To be taught by such a skillful chef was an unforgettable experience for my son and I. We want to sign up for all his classes!
