★★★★★ "As a chef instructor, I find the videos both informative and useful. Students now are in the information age and small segmented videos play right into that. Long lectures don't get the point across as well as 15 minute blurbs. I use whatever means at my disposal to ensure I am producing the future trendsetters in the industry. Thanks so much for a great product."
