As you can probably tell cooking is my passion. There is almost nothing I love more than throwing dinner parties and coming up with wonderful and creative dishes. I offer cooking and catering services, including cooking class parties, private dinners and catered events. I feature Italian and Spanish-inspired dishes of the highest quality, and use locally grown and artisan ingredients.

This was a very unique and different experience, especially as part of our bachelorette party weekend. Chef James has a beautiful home and I loved how we were able to see and witness every step of the cooking process. The ingredients he bought were gorgeous and fresh, the Bouillabaisse was unbelievable and I am still drooling over the homemade garlic aoli he made. Our entire party had a blast and I would highly recommend to anyone to take a class, especially for a large group, because you will be able to interactive with the chef as well as your party versus going to a restaurant.

We had a very enjoyable time with Chef James! HIs home is very pleasant, he is very personable and he was a great host and instructor. We started with apps (all premium cheeses, meats, breads and olives) while we gathered everyone who was a part of our class together. We had a number of people who did not know each other, which made for a fun time of interacting, getting to know each other and sharing experiences and perspectives. We cooked gnocchi together - from the boiled potatoes to the ricing to the kneading to the rolling and cutting to the forking - with each step explained and options shared. Then Chef James cooked it into an amazing (yet simple) sauce and we ate that as our first course. We were all stuffed - and then came the main course of meat and salad - and then dessert! So much amazing food - all high quality ingredients and well prepared. We were stuffed - and happy! (We all brought wine and shared it, too) Chef James took pictures of us throughout and forwarded them to us with the recipes for what we learned to cook as well as the recipes for the other foods he prepared. Now we can cook the at home. Overall, a great experience that we highly recommend.
