Chef Daniel was an amazing host! Before we got started he inquired about food allergies amd/or sensitivities, took time to cover the dishes we would be making, the idividual ingredients, and proper techniques. He asked and answered questions, shared stories about his experiences as a chef, and ensured that each of his guests were able to (safely) rotate through various kitchen stations. It was an oitstanding experience, and I am looking forward to siging up for more of Chef Daniel's classes in the near future.
