How Does the Class work? Do I need to bring anything?

Just your passion and your smile J Top Chef Cooking studio will provide all you need for your cooking session (ingredients & apron).
During your class, you will be preparing the menu that you have previously selected on www.topchefdubai.com/agenda.
The chef will take you through every single step of the recipes and will give you tips & tricks to ensure that at the end of the class you will have prepared a stunning dish.
You will then be invited to eat the food you have prepared in our stylish dining room. We prefer to avoid take away as a safety measure.
The recipes will be sent to your e-mail within 48 hours after the class so you can recreate them at home.
