My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time learning how to cook with Chef Michael. It was a lot of fun making pasta from scratch, and the recipes were so delicious -- it was clear there was a lot of thought put into the menu. Chef brought all the ingredients we needed, and as long as you have pots and plates, you should be all set. Chef Michael is also fun and easy to talk to. A great experience all around. Would highly recommend!

Chef Michael was awesome! What a great experience he provided to myself and my boyfriend. It was truly a HANDS ON cooking class and both myself and my bf did everything from beginning to end, which is exactly what I was looking for. The food was amazing and he was wonderful. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This class was incredible. My boyfriend and I came as a surprise for his birthday, and he loved it. We had so much fun handmaking pasta and learning different cooking techniques throughout the night. Chef Michael even played some nice jazz to add to the ambiance. We had a truly wonderful time and will definitely be back!
