We had an amazing experience with Chef Alex! he was well prepared, experienced, and knowledgeable. He explained every step of the process and let us try it ourselves to help us learn hand on. Finally, and most importantly, the pasta was delicious. I would recommend him 100%.

One of the most fun times I have had cooking. Alex was a true professional. Showed up on time, very friendly, and let you be involved in the process as much as you wanted. He kept it simple and fun and gave some helpful tips and tricks on how to make delicious pasta. He times it out perfectly where everything is cooked, then packs up his things and leaves to let you eat and do your thing. He brings the supplies so the kitchen looks spotless afterward. I will be recommending him to all of my friends.
