If you had a 0 I would rate it ) Starving after 4 measly courses that were in no way exceptional.. The most disappointing one I have gone to and I have been to many. The vegetarian chef from the "Spotted Pig" I will never go back again. Too much for too little quality and quantity. Also too much advertising.
I took a class here on cooking in the Puglia region of Italy, and it was a fun experience. It was a demonstration vs. a participatory class, but they were very good about explaining what they were doing and answering questions throughout the presentation. They have a giant mirror hanging over the kitchen so that you can see what they are doing. I came home with a lot of new recipes to try out and a full belly. I spoke a bit with the staff after the demo, and they all seem very excited about the work they do.
Unique sessions showcasing talented chefs (celebrity and rising stars) and wine experts, which are cooking demonstrations rather than hands-on classes (although attendees do have the chance to ask questions as the demonstration is going on). The space is tight, but a mirror set above the chef's station allows for those in the back to get a clear view of the demonstration.
