We took a spice course from him and opened up a wonderful world, a kind of country of the balaclavas all to discover and have fun in. He travels the world in search of lesser-known spices or even the best known, but of the best quality. Huge passion and enormous expertise, I strongly recommend to go there.
A year ago I purchased a coupon on Groupon for a sushi course for two people, as an anniversary gift for my boyfriend. More than a month before the deadline I tried to call the number "official" that appeared on the coupon, to book the course, unfortunately unnecessarily because the number was non-existent. I then searched on FB, where I found a second phone number to which I was able to write on WhatsApp. A girl told me, saying that the courses that month would not be there and that I could still use the coupon even after the deadline because I had informed in time. To my "Then I wait for you to contact me?" I was told "Relax". After two months no one contacted me, after I wrote several times I have been given different information and confused. When you were able to find the date for the course I was asked for the coupon code, I sent it and immediately I got a message from the "official" number in which it was written that my coupon had expired. I called and was told that I would have to tell the code right away not to miss the coupon, but no one had asked me and I could not know!!! The gentleman with whom I spoke was also allowed to escape a "Eh these are the tricks of the Trade" (?????) then told me that I could do the course anyway and that I would be sent the dates available as soon as possible. On November 27th I contacted the girl to tell me a wrong date where in truth there was no availability. Since that day I tried several times to send messages to ask for information and no one has ever responded. At this point I give up, I'm really sorry because I thought I was entrusted to correct people to make a nice gift, instead I made a fool and I feel teasing.
