          Question from Drew
          Does each student get to prepare all four courses?
          Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
          Hi Drew! If the class is smaller than 10 people, then there will be one Chef and everybody will be involved with each and every dish. That said, each student won’t be preparing his or her individual meal, but rather be involved in a team effort to “construct” the dish. Hope this helps!
          Question from nicole
          Is this a class that includes wine with the experience? If not, can we bring our own?
          Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
          Hi Nicole! This is a BYOB (Brind Your Own Bottle) class so you can definitely bring one!
          Question from Anonymous

          I really loved the class, evthg. from the quaint, homey set-up to the technique of cooking. Ivan was a great instructor and explained each step of the cooking procedures. We made vichyssoise, coq au vin, and creme brûlée. We also had a great and very social group, so that made for an even more enjoyable cooking experience.

          In this class all we did was cut the vegetables. We did not cook the meat. We did not get alerted how long the meat should cook. How long the soup should cook. And not how the creme brûlée has been sugared and torched. We pretty much paid 140$ for a byob class where we cut 1 onion, 1 potato, 1 piece of celery and 1 tiny carrot. They promised to send the recipe but have not. Highly disappointed. My mother and father can’t believe how much I spent on their gift.

          I brought my girlfriend for her birthday and we had a lovely class. It was a little basic, but I asked plenty of questions and that helped to flesh out the details. My one critique is that the instructors were not clear enough that if you chose a side you wouldn't get to learn the other side. The sad part for me was I took my girlfriend to this class in particular because she was interested in learning about how to make the pastry, but because of the confusion we didn't learn how to make the pastry at all.
