I feel like I didn’t learn what was in the course description. I went to learn basic cooking techniques and we spent most of the time just preparing a recipe. Very disappointed

It was a lot of fun, and Chef Wai Hon Chu is a great teacher! He explains everything so well, and is so enthusiastic about food and cooking. We were all at different levels in the class (I am very beginner), but Chef never made any of us feel stupid, just kept encouraging and offering tips and explanations. I would definitely take another class.

Excellent course for beginners or more experienced cooks. Choice of menu outstanding and clear, easy to follow instructions. All the dishes were hands on cooking so one could ask questions and be able to do the dishes oneself later. Handout booklet also very useful to follow through with. Very good instructor/chef who really made the course well worth while attending, his assistants also good and helpful. Highly recommended
