We had a wonderful experience in our pizza, focaccia, and apple crumble class with Chef Mert. He was well prepared, friendly, helpful, creative, talented and an excellent teacher. Everything we made with him was beautiful and delicious.

My husband and I had an incredible time learning how to make three different types of dough. Chef Mert is an amazing teacher and even knew how to quickly handle an oil spill left in the oven from a prior meal. Can’t wait to schedule another lesson but next time with friends to join us!
