Chef was great! Food just ok, our group felt like we spent too much just to be pushing dough around. Couple of mishaps in the kitchen… small fire in the oven! Also not happy we weren’t allowed to take food home. We ate so much with the other two courses we were full by the time the main meal was ready wasted a whole pizza. If I’m paying for supplies I should be able to take home what we made. Not sure if we would come back
