I really like Chef Ruth, but she didn't have some key ingredients for her dishes and had to use our food. The food was good, not great, and not very authentic. Also, I thought this was going to be more of a cooking "class" type of experience, where we would all be cooking along, and we really just watched her cook.

I had high expectations for the experience and unfortunately I was pretty disappointed. This was not a class, it was just having someone cook for you. I expected to have it organized in groups of us prepping, etc... There were no recipes during the class, the chef forgot ingredients; grits, salt, cheese, butter and oils. She asked to use what we had on hand and left her knives at a previous event. The chef would mention things she was putting in, but not really demonstrating technique. The flavor was ok, but thought the gumbo lacked spice. In addition, for the price, the quality should have been better. She used Johnsonville packaged sausage, low quality chicken, value whip cream. I would have thought it would be organic and high quality ingredients. Overall I was not impressed and would not recommend this for anyone looking for a class.
