Loved:

Organized, good quality ingredients

Improvements:

Music would have really loosened up the mood! The instructor can have a lapel mic and control over the volume. The instructor was perfectly fine, but we were expecting a bit higher energy.

Loved:

The personal instruction from the chef. The culinary tips the chef shared with us. The choice of items to be cooked. The preparation of all the ingredients and the cleanliness of the stations. The continual cleaning and prepping by the assistant.

Improvements:

Too many instructions and ingredients were sometimes given too quickly and we couln't remember which ingredients he said to put in when.

Loved:

Everything! We had so much fun. I’ve never taken a cooking class before as I don’t consider myself a very skilled or patient cook and after this class I already feel more confident and inspired to recreate the dishes we learned.

Improvements:

I wouldn’t change anything. Everything was so on point, easy to follow, fun and organized. I can’t wait to return.
