My husband and I have taken two classes. One was a pasta class and one was with Tally Vineyards, Santa Maria Barbeque. Both excellent. Plan on taking more classes in the future.

My son enjoyed his 4 day camp a lot. He has cooked dinner for the family twice and made scones without any help. He is confident and independent in the kitchen. What an amazing skill for him to have! Thanks!

My 14yr old son loves the classes at Back to Table. They provide excellent instruction and cooking tips. At the end of the course he gets a folder of all the recipes which we make as a family regularly.
