Enjoyed all of the class especially the spherified mojito and the Thai green curry sauce noodles. Was disappointed in not getting the food advertised - no prawns or scallops [Mac + Cheese and chicken were poor substitutes]. Also the class was larger than advertised - maybe admin staff need to check numbers??? The instructor was fabulous - he knew a lot and made it very entertaining. I would recommend the class if it is what is advertised and the numbers are small.
