This was such a wonderful experience. Chef Melissa and her team did such a great job with their presentation, they were punctual, and so accommodating throughout the entire experience. We were a group of girls for a bachelorette party and it was the last day. The experience was truly the icing on the cake! Highly recommend chef Melissa and her team, and the overall take a chef experience.
