Chef Robert was an absolute delight! He arrived early and was ready to go in no time. He was extremely patient with us and so helpful. I was writing down recipe information so I could cook it again, and he never got frustrated for having to repeat directions, measurements, or ingredients. He was so polite and funny -- just really personable. The food was AMAZING!!!! OMG the seasonings were on point! There were two of us (me and my daughter) who received the Modern Surf & Turf in-home class. He told us of other classes he does and we can't wait to use him again!!! I HIGHLY recommend Chef Robert if you want to learn to make a tasty meal that is not just pretty food, but also YUMMY food! I am so excited to make the menu soon. He also told us we could contact him in the future if we have any questions or need any help! THANK YOU CHEF ROBERT!!!!
