What a great way to start my online cooking class journey. This was my very first time taking a cooking class ever and my first online class and it was great! I think I will now forever more be addicted. My family really enjoyed eating the empanadas that I learned to make with Chef Marc, especially the spinach and cheese ones - the best!

Thanks, Chef Marc, for the class. We enjoyed our experience thoroughly. You were clear with your instructions, patient, knowledgeable about your dish, and moved through the course at a good pace. Thanks and we would be willing to do this again!

Chef Marc taught such an engaging, helpful, and informative lesson! I learned a lot of general techniques and tackled making and rolling out dough, which always intimidates me. My empanadas did not look nearly as beautiful as Chef Marc’s, but they are DELICIOUS. My boyfriend ate 10 of them in a row.
