Back to the Table is the perfect place to have a fun night out with friends, go on a date, or brush up on new skills. The recipes are amazing and the atmosphere that is created is homey and welcoming.

Three of us attended a class taught by Judy and couldn’t have had a better time. The place is very inviting and everything is super well organized. We would highly recommend Back to the Table for anyone regardless of cooking ability and experience.
