Hi Lisa,
I wanted to follow up and let you know we had a great time last night!

Our group, even though it was a bit smaller than we anticipated (and I think it made for a better time too), had great chemistry and thoroughly enjoyed your staff!

 Chef Chris, Sung, and Bobby were the best!!  They greeted us immediately and started the evening off with a fun energy, and the evening was flawless.   The tips and ideas demonstrated by Chef Chris were just great.   Sung was so nice, efficient, and kept us moving right along.  Bobby got the music going, and the beverages, and made sure everyone was comfortable.  Great team all around!

The food was absolutely delicious, fun to prepare, and all our guests were excited to learn they would receive the recipes.

Overall, it was a positive, and valuable client event.  David is already thinking about the ‘next time’.
Best Regards, Patti

Attended two classes with Chef Martin (FUN and went home with some great
cheeses). And this past Friday
Attended two classes with Chef Martin 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 caramel sauce over them. Chef Martin makes the class fun and gets us all involved. THANKS Prep & Chef!

Hi… I wanted to take a moment to 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

be on the lookout for more!

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

Thank you Chef Fama for a great class on Friday night.  We had fun and learned a lot and would definitely make this menu again!  See you in
our next class.  When will the new schedule be out?

Loved Chef Rahm's vegan class. We are also Gluten Free and Sung and he accommodated us. We learned about knife handling and so much more.  Please add us to your email list. Diann

Chef Karla
My husband and I took your steak class a week ago Saturday. We sat at the table closest to the kitchen with
another couple and a gal and her mother. Anyway, we truly enjoyed your class and your personality. It all went so
well together - much like the meal. We will be taking your Peruvian cooking class next month and can hardly wait. One of my dearest friends married a Peruvian man and
they just recently returned from 1 1/2 years of living there (for work). Her
husband is from Chiclayo (not sure if I spelled that correctly) and they got us in to Peruvian cuisine. Can't wait to
cook for them after this class!
Thanks so much Karla. Looking forward to enjoying more culinary adventures with you.  Molly

Chef Karla,
Good morning.  Please find a picture of my chocolate soufflé I created yesterday attached herein. It was a lot of fun making them and
friends and family who tried them said they were amazing.
I also wanted to show you that I made Coconut Macaroons drizzled in
homemade chocolate ganache. One word.....Yummy
Thank you again for your direction and professionalism.  I am so glad
that you are my Chef instructor.
Daniel
See you next Saturday.
