This experience was fantastic! Alex is an awesome Chef and Teacher and I would highly recommend his class to anyone interested! He brought everything we needed which made the whole process seamless. He is well informed about the techniques and the tips on when we try and make the same dishes on our own. The dishes were delicious and all in all we had a wonderful time! Will definitely be reaching back out to Alex in the future!
