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

We loved the class and chef Ivan was patient, informative, and warm. We would have loved to learn more about selecting the fish and preparing it (proper sourcing, slicing technique, etc.) but recognize time is limited. Perhaps this information can be included in the information provided after the class?
