Overall the experience was very disappointing for my team. We only get to do team events once every two months, and had saved up two events worth of budget to do this. The chef didn’t seem to have much patience for people to learn, which we think is a big part of the experience. Sometimes the way she communicated directions or feedback was quite passive-aggressive (good directions but phrased in a slightly negative way). A lot of people felt like it wasn’t as much of a cooking class, but more of a cutting/chopping class. We would have loved to be more hands-on but instead the chef did a bunch of the work. There was also a helper there who cleaned everything and prepped some of the kitchen, who the chef never acknowledged, which we thought was strange/rude. The food tasted good though.

Fun!! But We didn’t actually cook the food, just prepared it, but learned good techniques!
