    What a blast!
    Chef Y and his team are amazing! They conducted a pizza making event for our team and we had such a great time. The event was very interactive, engaging and I learned a thing or two about successful pizza making. The entrance to the location is nondescript but once inside, it's a beautiful commercial kitchen with tables and chairs for us to enjoy the fruits of our labor afterwards. I highly recommend this activity!!

    Fun and engaging French cooking class
    Chef Danny was an amazing host, knowledgeable, interactive and fun! We had a work group of 18 people and we did the French Cooking Class. The kitchen is spacious, we had time to mingle within the group, but also learn different skills and techniques. The class is not very hands-on but had just enough balance between lecture, interactive and tasting. The menu was incredible: niçoise salad, filet au poivre and creme brûlée. One of our highlights was learning from Chef Danny how to cut meat and separate the different cuts. We talked about it all week! Highly recommend it!

    Fun Experience learning to Cook
    My group was scheduled for the New England cooking class. The class menu quoted to me was New England Clam chowder, steamed mussels, lobster rolls, baked Haddock and Boston Cream Pie. We actually made the chowder and the Lobster Rolls. For the main we were given Salmon that was prepared for us instead of by us. We were never informed about a change in the menu until salmon was served to us. There was no dessert at all. Communicating that there were changes to what we planned and purchased would have been appreciated. Chef T and Chef Ashley were great teachers and the staff was amazing. The class was supposed to be from 2pm -5pm but we were being rushed out by 4:27. The group enjoyed the get together but was bummed over the lack of communication of changes to the menu and no dessert.

This was an amazing experience for our NYU students. They learned how to make cheese and pizza! The best part was how amazing Danny was. A great chef and even better teacher. Food was wonderful. Music was on point. Everyone had the best time. We can't wait to come back. Thank you to all the staff for a delightful and delicious experience. Thank you again to Danny, Stephen and Hector for making our first class such a pleasure. We will be back soon!

It was a wonderful experience all around. Chef Danny and Monica were great, knowledgeable hosts, and we had a terrific time. Helping to prepare everything was a lot of fun and everyone participated. We learned about making pasta (and fresh mozzarella) and had a delicious meal with the family. Highly recommended.

This is a fun learning experience! Noto only do you learn how to cook things from scratch, the chefs give the background/history of the dishes (where they originated, secret tips & tricks, etc.).

I went for a company event, but they also do more intimate classes with friends, couples, and more which I will definitely be attending in the future!

Chef Paige and Chef Marc were excellent hosts for our Senior Dinner and Cooking class. Chef Paige was super knowledgeable and warm. Chef Marc was super responsive and a great support to Chef Paige. I brought in some extra goodies (drinks and a cake) and the chefs were super kind to help set them up and also provided to-go boxes. Our students loved how interactive the demonstrations were and expressed tremendous gratitude for getting to participate in the class. I would absolutely rebook with them again!

I've taken this class twice, both times with Chef Tee, and it has been amazing. My initial trip was with friends for a birthday celebration, and our experience was so good that I came back a few months later with my coworkers for a team-building event, and they loved it too! I would recommend it to everyone for any type of group event, or you can even go solo! 10/10!

I had such a great time with my friends at the Brunch in a Crunch class! Chef Danny and Chef Paige were super fun and taught me so much about how to make these awesome brunch classics at home. I'm now a self-proclaimed eggs benedict pro. :)

I'd definitely recommend this class for a group of friends or even a cute date idea that different from just going to a restaurant!
