I throughly enjoyed the small group size and the family/homely feel of the environment. All of the recipes were achievable at home and provided a great variety for any home cook.

Not sure exactly-it was a gift . But I think it was around $300 give or take - not cheap but we had a great couple of hours. Sue was a wonderful host and cook .
