Hands-on Cooking: Knife Skills
Reviewed by Anonymous on 3/4/2018
The class was fun and I learned a lot. We spent the majority of the class chopping food, then we assembled many recipes. It was a bit rushed as we were preparing the recipes. The food was delicious though! I’m interested in taking more classes at the Botanic Gardenss
