I asked Chef Mike to my house when I had a group of girls visiting me from the North and needed to show them some Southern Hospitality. Chef Mike and his lovely assistant were so warm and fun! We had fabulous fried pickles, Shrimp & Grits, a to-die-for Bread Pudding and A LOT of laughs. Chef Mike is very talented in the kitchen and extremely organized. We helped and we learned some new techniques. Be sure to ask him about his growing up in Savannah! I would do this again for sure.

Chef Mike and his wife were very easy going and detail -oriented with the instructions for making the legendary chicken & Waffle meal ! I could really tell that they were passionate and knowledgeable about preparing a tasteful dish but a dish that’s also appealing to the eye. Their class was amazing !!!! I will be booking them again in the near future ! My advice to anyone reading this message book Chef Mike and his wife you will not regret it.

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!
