Answer from Michelle K. Verified Student
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.

Attended: Shop & Cook: Chinatown for Fish
My dad and I had so much fun. Abby was an incredible tour guide and chef. We learned so much and had an amazing meal to finish it. The restaurant is so intimate and wonderful and while we got to do a lot in our won, Abby was there to guide us through learning from how to filet the fish to how to perfectly seat a scallop. Worth every penny and we'll definitely be back!

I absolutely loved this class. Abby was amazing! I now feel pretty confident to buy fish in Chinatown and cook up a storm with friends and family. Great group of people and I learned a ton (get the pan HOT!) Definitely worth taking this class!

Excellent class. I took this class because I found cooking with fish somewhat intimidating. Learned everything from how to find the good ones to different ways to cook (plus some other general cooking tips that will be helpful). Abby was a patient, interesting, and fantastic teacher. Definitely recommend.

Incredible! Abby was so knowledgeable and passionate. We all started as strangers and ended as friends. It was a delightful day. The food was amazing and the experience was lovely. She closed down the whole restaurant and offered us wine, mimosas, coffee, and anything else we needed. I want to do it again :)
