Chef Mark was very informative! He taught at a great pace. He answered all of our questions and made sure we were comfortable with the techniques. We learned so much!


I wish we discussed temperature a bit more. It was our first time using an induction cooker so we didn’t know what was a low, medium, or high temp.

I was there with my wife


Everything was disorganized and crowded. I didn't feel like it was a cooking class as much as a live cookbook. I was expecting more instruction and less combine these ingredients.

Date Night: Backyard Summer Bites - Coconut Shrimp & Chicken Kabobs
Location: Dulles Town Center Mall - STERLING, VA
