We just completed another phenomenal YTT. Congratulations to all of the trainees who worked their asses off (you know) with such determination - they made great progress. Also, huge thanks to the Raw Chef Trainees, who outdid themselves with the incredible meals they prepared for us. We were fortunate to have had you with us. May massive success come to all the trainees in whatever adventures are next.
We're already looking forward to October, where in addition some of our regular and beloved guest faculty (Edward Clark, Chris Kummer, Joshua Michael, Simon Borg Olivier),we are psyched to be hosting Kino McGregor and Philip Urso for their first time with us.
