Other reviewers have said it all. Chef Giuseppe is a great chef and teacher. My wife and I enjoyed every minute and left feeling we had experienced a 5-star meal. Highly recommended.

Hi Naveen You need to contact them directly about this. Perhaps through their web page. I am not the chef of the cooking class. Just one of the participants. I am sure Giuseppe will do all he can to accommodate you. Cheers
