Does the thought of making maki rolls and nigiri at home excite you? What about the secrets to a beautiful flan? Chef Andy makes it all fun and easy to learn! Full of energy as well as knowledgeable about food--this young chef will teach you how to turn an ordinary strawberry into a cool rose for garnishes, and even educate you on edible flowers and fresh herbs [he actually grows them at home!]. If you're looking for a fun evening, you don't want to miss this class.

Booked the "Kids Colorful Italian Creation" class for our family. The kids (ages 12, 10, 5) and my wife and I were all hands on and loved learning different cooking techniques. Chef Andy was great with making sure everyone was involved and having fun. Chef Andy was a great teacher and showed/shared his knowledge of food throughout the class. It was definitely a fun class to do and it was great seeing the kids enjoy tasting their delicious creations.

My husband and I had a FABULOUS time learning from Chef Andy. He has fantastic stories, and was able to help us hone in our knife and intuitive cooking skills - Chef Andy is a patient teacher and very supportive. The menu/food was delightful, and it was a perfect way to celebrate my husband's birthday. I've already recommended him to three friends, and can't wait to hire him for future classes! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a lovely evening.
