Ed and Jinny do a great job and it's well worth the $. Excellent wine selections to pair with the foods and good company. They have a good way of involving all the guests in the meal preparation and everyone will learn something new. I would recommend this class to anyone who enjoys good food and drink.

Washington DC Cooking Class 

4 stars

We had a really great time! I enjoyed it from the very first minute to the last. We were made to feel comfortable and right at home. The Fleischman's are delightful. The only negative (and I don't know if I'd call it that) was the parking. However, that is no bearing on the experience. We are planning to attend again in the summer! Thanks!

Good Experience 

4 stars

My husband just came home from his cooking class experience. I gave it to him as a Christmas gift and he has been excited beyond belief to go. He reported that he really enjoyed visiting with the other students in the class and that the meal was good. But, he did have two valid concerns that I wanted to share, especially because I chose the class with certain expectations and the concerns are related to two of those expectations. First, the description states that there will be 6 or 7 others in the class, but his class had 19 people present. That's way more than expected. Also, either due to the large group or simply a fault of the course, there was little instruction provided in the way of technical food preparation and cooking advice. Because my husband is a foodie, I thought he'd get a kick out of receiving cooking instructions, but there was very little provided. He thought it was a very fun, but I wanted to share concerns too.

We had a wonderful night with great hosts and other 'students'. We received some great pointers to aid with meal preparation. The 4 course meal would be easy to reproduce in our own home. At the end of the evening, we were given clear instructions on how to recreate the menu at home.

My partner and I took a class in this gorgeous, charming home owned by a very sweet couple. I felt like we were cooking with family and enjoyed the enchanting outdoor dinning area. The food was superb and easy to make! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Celebration Dinner 

5 stars

I would like for the Fleischman's to know that Jymil and I had a wonderful time! The idea to conduct the cooking class in the privacy of their own home gives a very intimate feel, which made mingling with the other guest a breeze. The Celebration Dinner was fabulous and the wine paring was very helpful. It truly inspired me to branch out and allow myself to be more creative with different spices. We have told several friends about the class and now they would like to do it as well. Thanks guys! Sincerely, Page

Please pass on to Ed and Jinny that I had a great time at the class on Saturday. If I can get my wife to go with me next time, I will take the class again. Excellent food and wine. The hands-on is the best part.

Informative and fun class for all levels of experience. Personal instruction which, while not necessarily hands-on, proved useful for learning more kitchen techniques.
