Chef Gene did a fantastic job making us all feel comfortable, explaining the process and adapting the event to meet our expectations. He is very knowledgeable and made sure we were all engaged in the preparation of the meal. The ingredients were of high quality and the menu featured seasonal ingredients per our request. We all went away with many great tips on how to improve our cooking skills.

What a truly memorable evening learning so much from an expert teacher and consummate chef who is the former head of the Portland Culinary Institute. I highly recommend that everyone who would like raise their cooking skills to the next level take a class with him.
