Fantastic Birthday, Rustic Italian Cooking Class, experience for all twelve of us! Chef David and Sous Chef Jackie engaged us immediately and made a complicated multi course meal prep easy and fun even for the grandkids. The food was delicious! Place was welcoming, clean and great for the venue. We all had a ball! Will definitely book again!
