Was good fun, would recommend.
A very fun and informative class!! The downside is you have to bake it at your own home. So of you have plans after the class or you live a good distance your butter will melt.
Sarah was exceptionally knowledgeable and her class was truly enjoyable. Would take any other classes she offers

The tour was really interesting and informative. The distance covered is really short so it is pretty much accessible for anyone although there are 2 stops where you do go down some stairs. I think from a food perspective what you taste is very good, however the amount is very small so I would consider this a walking tour to learn about food versus a walking tour for trying food. For anyone interested in learning about neighborhoods in NY I would recommend it.

The tour was a fun and educational talk about the history of the neighborhood and how it came to be little Tokyo. Lots of fun restaurants, shops, and hole in the walls to discover! We got to try many different foods known in Japan- both sweet and savory! Overall, a great and compact experience :)

Great class! I think it's the perfect starter class for pie making. I loved the space at Brainery and the teacher (and he had some support from the Brainery staff) were super relaxed and fun, but also made us feel confident that we would be successful. I both liked that it was only 90 minutes...but I would have liked maybe a 15-30 minutes extra. It was enough time, but I had recently tried a pie crust at home and knew a little of what I was doing. But for the price and what we were told to expect, it was plenty of time. I might do it again with a friend!
Before taking this class, I didn't even know what a Galette was. Hands-on, shown easy way to roll out pie dough. Sarah Lohmam is a good instructor. Results were delicious!

This was great informative class. It brought back elements of successful composition that I learned in art school. The instructor was a great communicator, showed great examples of photos that works or weren't successful. Then a quick hands on experience of taking our own photos and critique after. I think this could easily be longer or multiple sessions.

I thought the class was very informative and I learned a lot about making pie crusts. The staff was helpful and the transitions between activities were relatively smooth. I wish we would've been able to cook our pies on site instead of taking home the uncooked minis though. They didn't travel well on the ride home.
This class was a great introduction to food blogging. Having no experience with Wordpress, it was a perfect overview. The class also helped narrow down concepts in a one-on-one way. You will be shocked how quickly four hours passes!
I am sorry I had to rush off ... I did enjoy the course up to that point - not sure what followed in the way of food -- the history was good and the host was very informative
This was an awesome class! First, I got to taste delicious ice cream and really learn about how to perfect it at home, and also learned a ton about its history! Fascinating, and fun. The instructor was knowledgeable and cool - felt like hanging out with a smart friend! Thank you!
good enough, just another snack or too would have been appreciated
