"I wanted to let you know what a marvelous time my friend Leanne and I had at the cooking class in earlier this month. The cook is a charming and extremely knowledgeable chef and made our experience one that we will not soon forget. We were made to feel at home right from the start and the food we cooked was amazing! The kitchen was situated in a beautiful location and I would certainly like to return sometime soon and take a week long cooking school"
