The cooking class was great! My wife and I really enjoyed learning from Chef Joshua about how to make pasta. We were curious students of the game and he answered all of our questions about the pasta-making experience. We made gnocchi a few days after his visit based on his guidance and it turned out excellent. I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in learning more or honing their craft.
