Beginners Culinary Boot Camp
Reviewed by Stephanie L. on 11/27/2018
Great class, especially for absolute beginners like me. I wasn’t afraid to ask questions or ask for guidence because the instructors were so great. Highly recommend this class - I gained very useful skills and, most importantly, gained confidence in the kitchen.
