Fantastic and yummy!
, Jun 2022
What a great hands-on family experience! It was an especially great activity for a rainy afternoon (it’s a rainforest, folks). We started by making our own mojitos (mock tails for the kiddos) and then made a 3 course meal: ceviche and platanos with black bean dip, a main course of cashew crusted sea bass with mango salsa and pork shoulder with mango chutney, and dessert of flambe’d bananas with homemade chocolate sauce and ice cream. Everything was delicious. My kids don’t eat fish and they actually ate this! Thanks to Scott and the team!!

Enjoyable cooking class. Learned a lot of cooking tips and looking forward to trying the delicious recipes at home. Our chef was professional and made the class entertaining.
Juste WOW!

J'ai ADORÉ mon expérience avec Scott! Il est super sympathique et disponible, tout en nous offrant d'excellents trucs culinaires et de savoureuses recettes (d'ailleurs, Scott nous envoie par courriel toutes les recettes préparées en cours, ce qui nous permet de les reproduire à la maison). Sa salle de cours est magnifique et super ensoleillée. Pendant que je cuisinais, mes enfants et mon mari sont allés pendre soin des chiens, dans le refuge de Scott qui se trouve au même endroit. deux belles activités à faire! Merci encore Scott et bien hâte de recuisiner le ceviche et bien sur, la sauce au chocolat.
