After completing two cooking classes with Chef Davide, all I can say is wow!! The first class I took with Chef was actually done in my tiny dorm kitchen. We slightly altered the class to accommodate for my food allergy, and I thoroughly loved each dish we made. Chef Davide provided very helpful tips and tricks during the class, even for someone who attends culinary school. The Private Virtual Cooking Classes are perfect for anyone who loves to cook, regardless of skill level. I had such a fantastic time in my classes and I highly reccommend them to anyone curious about the experience.
