My class size was 5. Very hands on. We made 2 different kinds of pasta, tiramisu and learned how to make risotto and a butter and sage sauce. The Chef was knowledgeable and personable. His recounting of his vast experiences took the class over the top.

We had a fabulous time. At first we thought 5 hours was going to be too much but it was perfect. The activities were timed out just right. Our chef was amazing. He was very interesting and personable. I cant wait to recommend this to all of our friends.

We had a wonderful time in the cooking class. We made tiramisu, pumpkin ravioli & saffron risotto. The chef was patient and a good teacher. We can definitely replicate these recipes at home. There were 9 of us in the class- a couple from Scotland, a couple from Israel & one local. Very enjoyable.
