Had a great class! I completed the knife skills class and really learned a lot. I liked the mix of discussion and hands on! I also loved that we used the materials to make soup at the end!

Teacher was great! Very engaging and informative. He kept our attention the entire time, and helped us whenever we asked for help.

The class itself was very informative! It was a great foundation.

Chef Mat was knowledgeable, funny and created a great atmosphere in class. He demonstrated techniques effectively and memorable so we can take them away and practice - plank, stick Square.

This was an excellent experience. The instructor was patient and explained things at an approachable level for both novices and those with some intermediate experience. Instructor discussed various types of knives, knife safety, and demonstrated how best to cut multiple types of vegetables, fruit, and herbs. This was an excellent way to spend an evening with my partner.

Our teacher was fabulous. She gave us techniques and good baking science quickly and at the right level of depth. Our finished products look great and the recipes and techniques we learned we will use again.
