Good class overall, the only real issue is that we were kind of rushed at the end. I was also hoping that the recipes would be a little bit more advanced.

Attended: Essentials of Thai Cooking

The instructor was passionate and informative. Every recepie was delicious and fun to make. I got exactly what I wanted out of the Thai cooking class! Only thing is out of the 10 recepies your assigned as a team and can only cook one of the recipes, so try to be done or take breaks between so you can observe the techniques of the other receipies being cooked by your classmates. Otherwise, worth every penny!

Attended: Knife Skills 1

I did this class with my fiancee as a birthday gift and we loved it! Our instructor was Sue and she was so much fun. She showed us easy (and quite amazing) ways to chop tomatoes, onions, peppers, etc. The class is structured very well for beginners and again, Sue makes it fun. We were laughing the whole time and couldn't believe 3 hours had gone by! [Morning class, August 17.]


Attended: Best Homemade Pizza

Suzanne Simonette gave this class 5 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.


Attended: Knife Skills 1

The teacher was very good. It would have been nice to do a very brief overview of how we were going to spend our 3 hours. Some networking might have been cool. Understanding where the cut vegetables was going. Also, just cutting vegetables is interesting...but what about fruit....what about protein? The class was interesting, but I don't think I'd recommend it to a friend. Finally, the cost was a little high.


Attended: Handmade Pasta for Summer

Great class! So much fun! And finally I know how to make my own pasta! Thanx chef Gerry!

Indiana Baltodano gave this class 4 out of 5 CourseHorse stars.


Attended: Knife Skills 1

This class was so incredibly helpful. Not only did I learn a ton of tactics to chop faster, more safely, and more accurately, I also learned how to really take care of my knives and extend their life. I had no idea how dull I'd been letting my knives at home get, in the long run I'm going to save a lot of money by keeping them in better condition. If I could give this class more stars I would!


Attended: Italian Surf and Turf

I loved the course and our instructor Melanie was fantastic. it was fun to make all the food and have a potluck-style dinner at the end of the class. Unfortunately, I wound up getting food poisoning later that night... I don't think this was by any means the fault of my instructor or ICE. It was likely because of careless cross contamination between the raw eggs or raw meat and something else we had prepared, but it definitely put a damper on the experience.


Attended: The French Steakhouse

Great class! Great chef! I'm so happy to be able to cook a good steak myself and make wonderful and tasty sauces!


Attended: Brioche and Croissant

Love the class !! Instructor very clear showing how to make dough folding step by step. Kitchen place is very neat and all provided conveniently. Class is also small enough, good size. Ingredients all provided and easy to get. I will definitely anyone to take this class


Attended: All About Technique: Grilling

I expected it would be a little moré complicated.It was to easy,very simple food. But it was good.

It was very helpful to understand and use the machine at home. Also the theory of the machine which chef explained was good.

Attended: Couples Cooking: Pizza and Wine Bar

This was a total waste of $250 dollars. Not a class at all. Essentially they just give you the ingredients and a kitchen and watch u make pizza. Certainly could have given us more wine as well. If you do not know how to cook this is not the course for you. There are no step by step instructions, it is essentially a free for all.

Beginner Sushi is a wonderful introduction to the history, ingredients and art of making sushi! Mamie is an excellent teacher...very systematic and clear. She has a lot of tips and tricks to share. I loved the hands-on aspect of the class... Making my very first Sushi roll was an incredible experience!

Attended: Essentials of Korean Cooking

Great instructor and super fun class :)


Attended: The Grill-Meister

Great class! The facilities and instructor were awesome. The family style dinner at the end was the perfect way to end the evening- plus we got to take home left overs. My only complaint was that the menu was very large and we had to break into teams to cook it all so I didn't have the opportunity to learn to cook everything first hand.

Attended: Favorite Classic French Bistro Dishes

Chef Melanie was very friendly and helpful. A great experience!


Attended: Knife Skills 1

I would absolutely recommend this class--and this teacher-- if you like to cook. I am shocked at how much more efficient I can be after taking this course. Sue was great--engaging, personable, helpful, funny. i will look for another one of her cooking classes to take in the future.


Attended: The Pacific-Northwest: American Regional Favorites

great course...me and my wife loved it...we are novice cooks and it was a great place for us to participate...


Attended: Fine Cooking 1

It went through the main skills and techniques to cook really great fine food, and it was a lot of fun. Sue is a great teacher - kind, patient, fun, inclusive, interesting, loves what she does. I really really enjoyed this course, and will continue practice everything I learned until I can do without the recipes! I plan to attend future courses with ICE.


Attended: Vegetarian Barbecue

"The course was fun and informative. The chef was excellent and guided our group through many successful dishes with clear instruction and technique as needed. There were several recipes I will gladly add to my own home cookbook."


Attended: Everyone Cooks Everything: Italian

I loved the course. To cook a five course meal in the time frame given was challenging, but fun. Our food turned out great and we loved sharing mealtime with the other classmates. I don't think it's a class for beginners, in that not a lot of instruction is provided, but the teacher was always available to give a few hints and check on things. You have to already understand knife skills, using specialized kitchen utensils and certain techniques. I'd definitely take another class at ICE and definitely from Daniela.


Attended: Knife Skills 1

Thorough instruction in the basic knife skills followed by a lot of useful tips to make cooking more efficient (both in terms of time and use of the food).


Attended: Knife Skills 1

I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn how to use a professional chef knife with no fear of getting injured! Thanks to the detailed instructions of Brendan McDermott, the whole process becomes clear and safe! Being a teacher myself, I appreciated a lot his way of performing the lesson, so that I actually had fun while learning the important skills and millions of other useful tips that he willingly shared with ( don't forget to bring a pencil with you to take notes!) There was enough space for each student in a class but what is more important there was enough attention to each student so that not a single mistake would slip away from Brendan's attention. I couldn't help but doing the whole thing again at home when coming back from the class. Bravo Brendan, so professional and inspiring!


Attended: All About Technique: Roast, Sauté, and Steam

Hands on course. Tremendously useful. Time and money well spent!


Attended: Road Trip: American Regional Favorites

Very good course, instructor, helpful assistants, everything delicious


Attended: The Great New York Steakhouse

Daniela, our instructor was wonderful. We were a little disappointed that we didn't get to prepare/cook more of what is part of class. That's just the way the class is structured and no fault of the instructor. Would have been better if it were multiple classes
