Super cute and charming restaurant! The chef was funny and friendly. I really appreciate all the time to get it organized, labelling the ingredients with paper, soaking chickpeas overnight so we could see the dry and soaked version and having all the ingredients measured ready to go. I had to buy hummus before this class cause I knew it would make me super hungry. The final product looked so delicious and I am excited to do more humus recipes.

Mike and Gil make a really fun team! For me it was fun to watch the basic hummus recipe I make (and eat every day!) come to life at the hands of a chef who kept me smiling and chuckling while spreading the message that fresh ingredients make the tastiest meals. I’m eagerly looking forward to future installations of this series!
