Attended: Isaac Bernstein - Pomegranate

Great class by pomegranate and DeGustibus cooking school never disappoints,


Attended: Markus Glocker- Batard

The host of the class interrupted the chefs throughout the class and was distracting. Every time the chef was about to say something interesting he would interrupt and ask an unrelated question. He also kept jumping in front of the chef to take pictures

Attended: J. Kenji Lopez-Alt - Serious Eats

Great class! I've been a big fan of Kenji's and was so excited to see him in person. He was really receptive to questions from the audience and the entire staff was extremely warm, friendly and welcoming. I'll definitely be coming back for more classes here.

Attended: Hossein Aimani & Costas Mouzouras

This was an incredible class. Both the content and presenters were fabulous. Would do this over and over again!

Bibi K.

Attended: Franck Deletrain – Brasserie 8 1/2

The menu for this class was well thought out - it was excellent. The chefs were very patient and went through each step in detail. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to experience the fine art of cooking, braising and brining. Also, the dessert was outrageously finger licking good.
