Very knowledgeable and accommodating!!

This was the second self up cooking class that my family has done for the holidays and I was very impressed with our chefs ability to adjust to my allergies! I have a soy, nut and shellfish allergy so I was hesitant when my brother suggested the dumpling class for our parents present this year. I called before booking and they said they could handle the allergy. There was a bit of a miscommunication and the chef was not told before the class, but he was absolutely amazing! He went through the recipes with me and made a separate batch of pork dumplings that I could eat and was very careful to avoid cross contamination. He kept everything that I was allergic to separate and even making sure to change his gloves before touching the outsides of the dumplings while they were cooking. I unfortunately don’t remember the chefs name, but wanted to pass along my gratitude for his extraordinary flexibility!!!

Fantastic time!!

We had a blast, the staff were incredible. Lot's of fun and the food was delicious. It was great to learn some cooking techniques I can use at home. We'll be back Chef Rudy - you've been warned! LOL

From start to finish the entire Selfup team was amazing to work with. The event itself was amazing! We did a team building Italian cooking class with my group of 40 and I was so impressed with how they got everyone to interact and participate! Everyone was raving about it!

Had the best time with Chef Rudy and his team! I did the Italian Pasta class with my boyfriend for his birthday and it was the perfect night! Chef Rudy is hilarious and a great teacher. His team was helpful and even walked around offering to take photos/videos. We left the class full and with a few new cooking skills we could easily do at home.
