My wife and I took the classic french cooking class with Chef Michael in NYC. He was an excellent chef, very kind and patient with new learners. It was our 1st anniversary together and Chef Michael made our day very special. He is very knowledgeable in cooking from his experiences around the world and he knows a lot about healthy eating. Highly recommend Chef Michael for everyone.
