    "My first FENI experience and it was AMAZING! The networking, knowledgeable chef instructors teaching the master classes at both Washburne and the French Pastry School and I loved the keynote speakers; Fritz is so charming and knows his craft well, Mindy Segal was wonderful too very personable and the hospitality & food at her restaurant HotChocolate was outstanding. Thank you for the great experience, I can't wait for next years event."
