"My husband and I took the ravioli class and found it fun and informative. The equipment was professional and there was always staff around to help. We learned a lot but we laughed a lot, too. And by the way, our finished ravioli were delicious and looked good as well. The accompanying brown butter sauce was so easy to prepare, we've done it twice already at home."
