Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would definitely recommend this course. This course was hands on and impressive. Being from New Jersey, I had never been outside of the US, so being allowed to taste and develop flavors from South America, was unique to me. It made me feel as though I was actually there in the same Brazilian or Mexican street market, making and tasting the food myself.
The highlights of this course was the overall experience. Just today, I witnessed my chef demo cutting a beef heart. I watched and took notes on how tender it was and how he easily cut the fat away from the meat and simmered it down for a stew. Jut the day before, I witnessed my chef cutting up octopus legs for garnish. He even let me try for myself! This class was amazing and I am so glad I took part.

Advice for students:
ALWAYS be prepared for class! Always read recipes twice! If you have any questions on what to do, ask chef. He will be more than happy to explain anything to you. Don't be afraid to get you hands dirty and cook great food!
