Chef Michael was amazing! My daughter and husband loved the class. He made it interesting, informative, and fun - and they made a fabulous lunch, as well as learning a ton of knife skills. Thank you Chef for an incredible class!

Chef Michael was incredible! We attended as team bonding activity with 10 people from our company and we had the best time! We learned a lot and the food we made was delicious. The chefs even made us fresh warm macaroons to snack on while we prepared our meal. I would 110% recommend this class to anyone looking for a fun night of learning to cook and eating delicious food!
