Perfectly on point

One of my favorite Craftsy classes so far. This class delivers exactly what it promises to deliver. The instructor manages to be personable without a lot of unnecessary small talk and fluff. Highly recommended.

Brendan Is Amaaazziing!!

Brendan is an amazing teacher and he brings his experience as a chef to his instruction. He is funny too, which is always a plus to keep his students engaged. I learned a lot from this class! <3

Class as Occupational Therapy

Struggling with hand recovery from rheumatoid arthritis, I found I couldn't use my hands for about 4 weeks. It was this class that helped me relearn...even better, my muscles were too weak to try the usual bad habits. I had to let the knife do the work and keep it sharp. As my hands grew strong enough to heft a knife again I learned how to do it safely this time. Thanks for the class :)
