Chef Zach was a wonderful instructor with advice for hobbyists and seasoned bakers alike, plus plenty of colorful anecdotes from his work and travels to spice up the class. And the food was delicious! I will definitely be using his methods and recipe in the future.

We had a lovely time. Our family scheduled a private class with Chef Zach to simply have some "social distance family time". What a great way to spend time together. Chef Zach was very relaxed and didn't rush us through the class. We really learned a lot about the industry, techniques, and ingredients. What a fun thing to do! Thanks Chef!!

We had such a great class! If you do it, be prepared, have the ingredients ready and impress yourself at how much you can create in a short time. Our chocolate choices didn't quite match the recipes. For one we needed extra cream to fix the ganache. For the caramel ganache, it turned out our chocolate was tasted too fruity. Next time I'd try the brand recommended by Chef Zach. Highly recommend this!
