Amit is a great guy with exceptional English and many kitchen jokes. Not only was our experience informative, it was also entertaining. I was able to take away many learnings that I can easily apply in my own kitchen. In addition, we didn't feel rushed or pushed out of the place once we finished cooking. Amit treated us like people... More
