Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience as a married couple and would recommend this as a date idea. We learned several things and will put them into use at home.

This was fun and entertaining, but we didn't appreciate the inappropriate humor and would not recommend this for children. We also booked a wine pairing, and that is not what we received.

It was a blast! Totally recommend no matter what’s on the menu. We got to participate as sous chefs, ate & drank homemade food & wine to our heart’s content. So many great tips for cooking authentic Italian. You will want to go again & again!!!

I've been wanting to go to this class for years. Finally booked one and am so happy I did! Chef is a blast and gets everyone involved. From the time you walk in the door to the time you leave, it is clearly evident that he loves what he does and loves people. I learned so much in that short time. I'm looking forward to trying out some new skills and new recipes on friends and family. I highly recommend the experience and plan to try some of his other classes with friends and family.
