What an incredible experience! Alex was awesome! I would highly recommend taking one of his classes. He was on time, knowledgeable, personable, and helped us cook an incredible meal. Alex also did a great job interacting with our 5 year old son, who was very excited to help as the “sous chef”. Couldn’t be more happy about our experience and we will 100% be booking him again. Thanks again Chef Alex!
