Chef Alex was great. The class was informative, but not too much work, which was ideal for my group of friends. The food was delicious and the whole experience was a total treat. Highly recommend!

Had an awesome time with Alex! We had him teach us his pasta recipe for my boyfriend's birthday. He was super knowledgeable and professional. With just the right mix of fun!
