The chef was great and had an awesome personality. He made the class fun but also informative. Our food tasted awesome and looked close to the real deal, he definitely did a great job explaining things. The venue was great as well; the woman working the front desk was extremely pleasant and nice. I wasn't able to try the wine but everybody else seemed to enjoy it. Would love to come back for one of Chef Victor's other classes!

Just completed the mozzarella and burrata course in Hicksville. Very infomative and a great class to meet like minded foodies in long island. Make sure you bring a cooler for the mozzarella cheese if you are eating out afterwards.

Sadly, this class isn't a Mozzarella making class. It is a curd melting class for restaurant owners. The class starts off with Victor telling you how restaurants make mozzarella by using curd purchased in 30 lb blocks. Vistor even explains how getting a hold of the pre-made curds is difficult, so much so that you have to buy in huge quantities. He laughs this off and then proceeds to show you how to add pre-bought curds to hot water....so difficult. We went to this class to learn how to make cheese at home, when we asked him questions about using a kit at home he laughed and acted like we were crazy. Victor told us he's never even made mozzarella from milk.

Was a fun class and Chef Victor was a great teacher - very knowledgeable and funny. That said, it was kind of a bummer that there were only three stations and we had to wait around for our turns to make the cheese.

My sister wanted a "fun" Christmas gift - so I offered to take her to a cooking class on her next visit to NYC, and she choose the Pad Thai class. The class was fun and the chef instructor was outgoing and informative. There was a wide array of fresh ingredients to choose and a protien option of tofu for vegetarians. The class was split up into pairs, my sister and I making our own Pad Thai - and the end result was delicious! I would reccomend for a fun night out with friends or a date.

Chef Victor with his character made the class lots of fun, and Cedric was an excellent assistant who thought through everything and prepared everything for us, students. We asked many questions about mozzarella and other food topics, and many were answered for us! I would want to participate in Chef's other classes if I get a chance!
