In the restaurant camaje. There are cutting boards with all necessary prep equipment in the main seating area and once everything is prepped you go into the kitchen to cook it all!
Answer from Shandy L. Verified Student
Yup, there is all of that, plus shopping for the fish to start the day. Our class bought and cooked four kinds of fish, plus mussels, shrimp, and scallops.

Abigail was a patient and amazing guide, showing us the ins and outs of how to pick fresh seafood. The cooking of the fish was also an amazing experience as we were able to prepare a meal in the kitchen of her restaurant. The entire experience was extremely enjoyable and I would recommend this for everyone.

Chef Roger was great - patient, funny, knowledgeable. There was plenty of time for questions which he answered fully. It was a really fun class and I felt that my husband and I learned a lot. There were a lot of recipes to get through and I can understand how 7-8 students were needed. But I felt that the restaurant's kitchen can really accommodate only 6 or 7, excluding the chef. Overall, this was a great experience!

Still waiting for the chef to email the recipes. I especially enjoyed shopping for the fish in Chinatown although the walk back to the restaurant was a hike in the rain. Learned how to filet a fish. Chef Roger was very engaging & informative. Didn’t like all the garnish on the fish.
