Reviewed by Anonymous on 11/12/2019
The class was professional, fun, and informative. The instructor was engaging, articulate, and technical. HOWEVER, when I asked for a handout of the recipes, I was told they were emailed to me from Chopping Block (the class vendor). BECAUSE I registered for the class on 'coursehorse' rather directly through Chopping Block (the vendor), I did not receive the recipes. This was a HUGE disadvantage during the class because I was unable to follow along and make notes as the instructor was presenting the technique. In the future, I will register for the class directly through the vendor rather than through 'coursehorse' to assure I receive the appropriate accompanying materials.
