Hello Chef Karla
Let me start by saying that I
haven't stopped singing your
praises to anyone that asks how
my class went this weekend. It
was great to have you and I
actually learned something!
Thank you for making it a
comfortable and fun environment
for all of us. You are a fantastic
chef and teacher. I can't wait until
the coming weekend for class

Hi Chef Martin!
We all had so much fun baking
(lots and lots of) bread last night
at PREP Kitchen Essentials! Thank
so much for sharing your
expertise, knowledge,
experience, and skills with us! I
am very much looking forward to
baking many loaves of bread!
Thank you!,   Stephanie

Loved Chef Rahm's vegan class.
We are also Gluten Free and Sung

learned about knife handling and
so much more.
Thanks again- Diann and Walt

Hi PREP,  Thank you for the

My wife and I attended your
cooking class on February 11th in
Seal beach.  We just wanted to let
you know how much we enjoyed
the class.  Susie was just
outstanding.  We are still talking
about how much we enjoyed the
class and how much we learned.  
It was just great.  We are
recommending the class to
everyone we talk to about
cooking.  Once again, thank you
for a very enjoyable evening.

consideration,  Naomi

Attended two classes with Chef
Martin recently - the Cheese
Making class (FUN and went home
with some great cheeses). And
this past Friday enjoyed the
Tamale class. OMG best tamales
I've ever eaten. It took me an
hour and 15 minutes to get to
Prep from Santa Ana (torture!)
however, the class was amazing -
we made over 200 tamales in 3
hours. It was SO worth the drive.
And, again, we took home a plate
full of the most delicious tamales
ever. The chocolate tamales were
a surprise, and I loved the carmel
sauce over them. Chef Martin
makes the class fun and gets us
all involved. THANKS Prep & Chef!

Last night's cooking class --
Summer Superfoods with Dr.
Allen Arnette -- was simply
fantastic! I've never taken a
cooking class but always wanted
to try one. Allen made it fun &
interesting. And the food was
delicious! I hope I can take his
3-wk Cleanse classes in the fall.

Hi… I wanted to take a moment to
share feedback on the AMAZING
class that I had last night at Prep
Essentials with Chef Z.  My three
girlfriends and I traveled in the
pouring rain from the Aliso
Viejo/Ladera Ranch area in South
County.  It took us over an hour
to get there  in the rain and
traffic, but every moment was
WORTH IT!!!  Our class was fun,
our chef instructor was fun and
our food recipes were amazing!   
My girlfriends and I used one of
our 2 Groupon certificates and we
are all looking forward to using
the next certificate for the next
class!!!  
I hope you do more vegetarian or
Vegan based classes.  I easily
have more vegetarian and even
meat eating friends that would
love to take a class.  Who could
possibly turn down an opportunity
to drink wine in a class and eat
great food after learning very
handy cooking techniques????
Thanks for having the class and I
will be on the lookout for more!

Fantastic folks at PREP -
Each of the four classes I've
taken at PREP so far has been
excellent, and I love the variety
that you offer.  Your Groupon
offer was by far the best deal I've
seen on Groupon ever as it
helped me recruit some friends
who I think are now hooked like I
am.  But you had me before that
offer and I'll continue to take
classes even though I've used
both Groupons.  Thank you very
much for providing these classes
and for the variety of great chef
instructors you find.  I love your
store!  Cheers,   Lisa
