Chef Mert was fantastic. He was very friendly and great vibes. It was a perfect date night with my girlfriend. I would very much recommend any class by him, as whatever he teaches he will make very enjoyable. He came to our home, which was nice, but next time it sounds like his kitchen would be really great too.

So great! Chef Mert is a very talented, hospitable chef who made the experience fun and easy to follow (even for my husband who’s not the best of cooks…). He arrived early, prepped the kitchen, and left it the way he found it. The bread, pizza, and apple pie were all so good, we couldn’t stop eating. We’d definitely take another class with Mert!

We had a fantastic time with Chef Mert! We learned a lot about homemade dough, and made a delicious meal. Huge bonus that we had dough to make more pizzas and focaccia right away to cement the skills we’d learned.
