Excellent teacher! She was fun, passionate, and interesting. Learned a lot, had a great time. Highly recommended!
This was an amazing experience. The chef was grate. I had fun. Learned. Met new people. I am sure others will enjoy it. Thank you.
I thought the main instructor and assistant were very nice, professional, fun. I think I expected a more advanced class. I learned two new techniques. Expensive night out, $95 for class, $47 for parking, $15 tolls, gas, dinner, But cupcakes were good, tasted great, but wanted to do more difficult products; filled, flavored.Overall enjoyed the night out with my girlfriend.
Terrific class. Very fun and exciting for beginners. Great instruction, relaxed environment, and not bad meal either :). A little long, and you eat a little late. A little tight quarters.
I thought it was really great. The instructor was super knowledgeable and I felt that her teaching was really informative as she included some schools of thought from the Torah, etc.
Very informative class , the chef was very good at explaining ,showing hands on ,and answering all of our questions . I would recommend to anyone interested you won't be disappointed .
Great class - fun and informative instruction by Lynn Kutner and a terrific group of students!
Intimate setting, hands-on and very pleasant to attend- time flew by! I also really loved how Naomi, taught us the symbolism and tradition of Challah not only the actual recipes. Would definitely attend again!
Lots of fun, highly recommended.
VERY INFORMATIVE AND DELICIOUS
