Alex was awesome! We did a couples class and learned how to make cacio e pepe. It was one of the best pasta dishes we've ever had! The recipe was super easy to follow, and he showed us many tips and tricks along the way. Alex was super easy to get along with and talk to, and he made the whole experience enjoyable. He really exceeded expectations, would highly recommend!

Great experience! Easy to follow recipe and steps, and a FANTASTIC meal. Alex was super easy to talk to and made the experience fun and relaxed. He was very understanding when I asked to make accommodations for diet restrictions. Thanks Alex!
