Thanks for the great lesson. It would have been nice to have a bit more hands on time, but overall the food was delicious and we had a great time.

James was wonderful. He was a great host and explained everything in detail. His house was beautiful. The group enjoyed each other's company. I wish we had had some more hands on experience on cooking, though.
