It was awesome!

Very kind. The guide, who was for the cooking class, our chef, was very pleasant. Discovering these recipes and cooking them even with our own kitchen spaces were quite well organized, which made learning flexible and easy. I highly recommend it, you won't regret it. PS: it is preferable not to eat breakfast before, the meal is very generous.

It was great. However I was expecting full day but only got half.

Learnt a lot and it was really fun. However, part of the group got to stay the whole day but, despite paying for full, they only had me down for half the day. Would have loved to have made the extra dishes.
