We had so much fun with Chef William! He came to our house and taught us how to cook an incredible French meal. He is fun, knowledgeable, and a great teacher. I would highly recommend this cooking session!

My husband and I had a WONDERFUL experience with Chef William for the French Indulgences lesson. Chef William put us at ease immediately and was a terrific instructor. As we made the courses, he taught us specific techniques for preparing different ingredients (ex., how to do tomato concasse, julienne onions, deglaze a pan when making sauces, etc). Chef William was easy to talk to and by the end it felt like cooking with an old friend! My husband and I loved each dish that we made and felt that it was definitely a worthwhile experience. One note - our lesson was the weekend of the crazy windstorm in DC. We actually ended up losing power towards the end (the whole street was out!) when we were eating course #4, but Chef William powered through like a total champ and turned our dinner into a romantic candlelit setting. A great experience all around and would definitely recommend.
