I’d recommend this to anyone with an interest in cooking. Ryan the host keeps the class relaxed and supplies some awesome food at the end. Nice beer and wine too.

I went to use my gift voucher that had expired 3 months earlier and Ryan would not honour it. As a fellow business that sells gift vouchers I find the prospect of keeping money for not providing a service totally unethical.

Ryan clearly knows his stuff and imparted plenty to us in this BBQ class, and the BBQ food was amazing.

Not only informative and interesting this course was delicious. Ryan was engaging and deeply knowledgeable and passionate. The food at the end was mouth watering, tender, tasty and immensely satisfying. Well worth the time and the $$.
