Chef Jason was great, he explained a lot of techniques in detail and made sure to tell us about small little tricks and tips to help us along. He was great host and it was a pleasure talking to him and understanding more about how the kitchens and chef's in them work. The food was phenomenal! I loved the all the three courses but espec8ally loved the cheesecake at the end! Highly recommend it, it's a very unique experience and Jason makes you feel very comfortable and at home all the way.

Jason was so great! We had a great time making the garlic bread, pizza and brownie sundaes! It was such a fun activity to do and would definitely do again!
