Chef David was great! Fun way to accomplish team building in a virtual work environment.

This was a fun experience to bring our team together virtually. It was interesting to see everyone in their home kitchens. The recipe was straightforward and easy to follow, and gave me a few ideas to tweak a dish my family already enjoys regularly. My one suggestion would be to give a quick explanation at the beginning of the class, showing everyone what view should be used in Zoom to be able to see the chef clearly. As Chef David was talking, the image of his face was the largest on screen, but he was telling us to watch his hands, and that camera was not showing up at all. When I switched to gallery view, I could find his hands, but the image was tiny. Just a suggestion for the future - I could still follow along and enjoyed the experience! Thank you!
