We were a small group of 6 and given a personalized service. We went to the market and introduced to the ingredients that were to be used for our future recipes. Once at the restaurant, we were well greeted and quickly put to work...the sous-chef was friendly and a great coach. The recipes were not only easy to make but we enjoyed to eat at the end.

Not exactly as expected in the description but turned out ok

The market “tour” is a quick run. Felt very rushed (it’s small) as another class was going to be joining in part of our class. That was a little awkward as we had no idea what was going on. Then a lot of time sitting. Waiting - coffee then waiting. Food was not bad. All traditional and the staff was entertaining. No fancy stuff just basic bread pasta and fish. A ton of food to eat at the end!!
