David was an awesome teacher - very patient, fun, and explained everything so well that even I loved this! I am a terrible cook, but I can hardly wait to try some of the recipes he shared that day.

He gave us so many hints that I know everything will turn out great. I hope your cooking school will be a great success. David will be a great asset to this endeavor.
