This Week at Marcel’s: January 16th – 22nd

This is the time of year when you might look at our online class calendar and see a lot of “Sold Out” notices.  We have so many people with gift cards from the holidays and it’s a perfect time of year to take time out for a fun class so we tend to be at capacity, especially on the weekends.  Don’t get discouraged!  By the middle of February we will have our April, May and June class calendars out and seats will be wide open.  And we are squeezing in another session of one of our February classes that has a giant waiting list — we’re working through the details which we will get out to you in the next day or so. Our classes are worth the wait — here’s a comment from an evaluation from a very recent class:

What a wonderful evening. (The chef) and the staff are unbelievable. The food was as good as anywhere I would have at a fine restaurant.  Just a great experience.
