Chef Mike & his wife were awesome! Not only was our experience fun, the food was awesome! We had a little hiccup during the scheduling process due to some unforeseeable circumstances; however, Chef Mike was very flexible and accommodating a new date that not only fit our schedule but also was a date that didn’t make us wait long! Chef Mike was funny, generous, and personable. We can’t wait to recreate our meal because it was so delicious! We highly recommend Chef Mike for a great time, a memorable experience, and super delicious food!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning from Chef Mike! Not only is Mike passionate about food, but he is also a wonderful storyteller and I loved hearing about what inspires him to cook for his family and community. He was very thorough when describing cooking techniques, and the final product was absolutely delicious! As an Atlanta local, I was very impressed by Mike's spin on the classic chicken and waffles dish. Thank you for opening your home and sharing conversation, inspiration, and your wonderful food with us!
