I really enjoyed the class and the delicious lobster dishes. Thank you again and look forward to the next exceptional class from Chef Dave.

Class was a messy blast. I loved it and the food was phenomenal. We are lucky to have the opportunity to share his (Chef Dave's) space and knowledge!

I think the thing I enjoyed the most about the class was seeing Dave enjoy it so much!  I thought he did a great job of instruction and hands-on during the class.  It's one thing to hear and watch but even better to get in there with your hands and have him assist and encourage you along the way.

The class was awesome!  Definitely worth every minute and penny!  Dave was great.  The best part, for me, was Dave showing me how to use a knife without cutting the whooey out of my fingers.  Loved every minute and every bite!

The class was wonderful!
