Everybody had a fantastic time! Its such a different type of corporate event that fuses team building, collaboration, communication, and great food/wine in a very comfortable and casual setting. Nothing but 5 stars from our team!

What a fun evening!  I wasn't even home yet and I was getting texts about what a special night it was.  There was a lot of great chemistry and Julia, you really know how to whip a group into shape! And, the food was amazing.  I am still thinking about that risotto and the berry cobbler! My dream of being at one of your cooking events came true, LOL. I know that everyone enjoyed the evening and your staff was wonderful.
