Chef James was a great host. We enjoyed learning how to make fresh pasta and sauce as well as the yummy food that was provided. It was a wonderful time.

Great, intimate experience. Food and cooking class were excellent. Pre-meal snack was lovely. Chef James really knows his stuff and was really patient explaining everything. Market tour was pretty short and could be better structured.
