Meet and Learn from World-Class Chefs
The crowd was noisy and it was a bit hard to hear the chefs if you were sitting in the back Food tasted excellent The questions asked by the crowd were very basic and slowed down the chef Overall recipes covered were good although could have been more sophisticated
It has been such an interesting class! Avery is really very professional and really knows how to bake ! I recommend her class!

While She seems like a very lovely person with a rich history of stories and recipes her personality did not come through in the class. Food was tasty, instructions lacking
While she may have great stories and numerous awards, she had difficulty articulating them and keeping on topic. The food was good & tasty!
