"The course was excellent, with
lots of good instruction from the chefs, Maynard and Benedict. Our skills
greatly developed because of lots of `hands on` experience and on the
last day we designed and prepared our own meal. The only `F` word in
this kitchen was FUN. We would definitely recommend this course and
shall be returning ourselves if we can."
