So tasty! The instructor was very friendly and informative. He kept asking questions and giving all types of general cooking tips. We could have easily been learning with a food network star. The lunch we prepared with salad, Spanish omelet, and paella was very flavorful.

This was a ton of fun! It was a small class, so lots of hands on and interaction with each other. Chef was great, explained everything well and had lots of good tips along the way. All the dishes tasted amazing! I had a lot of different kinds of paella in Spain, and this recipe was a favorite. We asked about being sure to get the recipes and they emailed us all the recipes even ones we didn't make! right then and there.
