It was very convenient as all we needed to bring was our own tupperware to bring back our cookies, otherwise you can always purchase one from them for disposable tupperware's for 80 cents. Convenient and considerate, love the service! Not to forget that they will provide ingredients for you on the table right before you arrive, just to have a feel of the ingredients before you start. At19 Culinary, we were guided by one of their chef, to make sure we were on the right track.

I would really suggest you guys to go there to spend your weekend differently with friends or family, as its a fun experience to be cooking together, and also, to leave all the cleaning hassle if you're doing it at your own house ;) The class was held for around 3 hours or less in this baking class, just in case any of you are wondering.
