This class was a gift from my daughter. Our teacher was engaging, informative, knowledgeable and entertaining (funny)! The professional kitchen was clean, spacious, and well-equipped. We (a class of 16) had plenty of room to observe, participate in demonstrations, and do the work of the class - making dumplings! We learned how to roll a spring roll with rice wrappers, how to make dumpling dough, and four ways to roll and shape dumplings. Our teacher's demonstrations were detail-oriented but not overly complicated. Our creations were steamed and fried by our teacher; we had a delicious feast at the end of the class! I had a lot of fun and will definitely do another!

This was extremely fun! The food was so delicious and it was very hands on. We made dough from scratch, vietnamese spring rolls, dim sum and learned to fold different dumpling styles. There was crackers, spring rolls, wine, and other drinks available to have before and during the class.
The chef was great and very helpful! Chef Danny and Alex are a good time and made everything an easy, smooth experience.

Chef Tresser and Chef Mark were great. They were very thorough and helpful. The class was informative but very fun at the same time. Will definitely be coming back!

Krista Gundersen Mar 2023

Chef Ygael was great - he was funny and informative at the same time. This is definitely more of a basic level class, but what was nice is that it took the pressure off of anyone who wasn't comfortable in the kitchen. Chef Ygael demonstrated everything first and then we would practice the techniques. The dumplings and rolls were delicious!

Brittany Lim Jan 2023

The teacher was amazing and provided us a lot of help and technique to roll spring rolls as well as different shape to make for dumplings. The sauce he created paired so well with the dumplings we have created.
