Chef Jay teaches much more than the techniques and skills needed to cook. He helps you fall in love with the spices and vegetables through his enthusiasm for the way they smell, feel and taste! He is very patient and creates an environment where everyone wants to work together to make the meal successful. I learned a lot as well as really enjoyed the evening!

I felt that there needed to be more on knife skills and less on building a recipe. I expected to have more (and larger) vegetables to practice on. While the recipe part was nice, we spent over 45 minutes making poached eggs and hollandaise which took away from the knife skills portion of the class. The instructor was good, great personality and very friendly and knowledgeable. More teaching, less schtick would be a good comment.

The class was amazing! Wow ! A wonderful introduction to a vast variety of healthy food ingredients and tasty burger recipes. The class was taught by Chef Jennie, who is a knowledgeable and professional chef. Her mild-mannered, pleasant personality was the perfect compliment to the evening.She guided us through the array of menus , teaching us techniques and interjecting pertinent tips and suggestions to aid us in our cooking skills. Her assistant Jackie was also very supportive and extremely helpful. The foods was delicious ! I really enjoyed the class and am looking forward to making the recipes at home.

The chef was great and hats-off to him for working around and helping a group. Not easy! Being that this is a “fun” class, I wish the wine would have been offered during the class to make it more casual and fun throughout the 2+ hours.

The class was so much fun! It was great learning a new recipe (that my husband can make) and chat with other couples. It was a nice mix of cooking and being social. I will definitely do another course there and have told some friends about it!
