Attended: David Kolotkin - Basil

The crowd was noisy and it was a bit hard to hear the chefs if you were sitting in the back Food tasted excellent The questions asked by the crowd were very basic and slowed down the chef Overall recipes covered were good although could have been more sophisticated
