Chris was a real treat. He’s a humble and extremely knowledgeable teacher who, you can tell, really loves his craft. Yes, the food was amazing, but we really just enjoyed peppering him with questions around the “why” we used certain ingredients or prepped foods in certain ways. He knows much of the history and culture behind the recipes and how specific ingredients or preparations add to the success of the dish. This was a very enjoyable anniversary gift for my wife and I.

Chef Chris was amazing! He was very informative with an great personality. My son and I were very comfortable talking and engaging with him straightaway. I am definitely planning to schedule another class soon.
