Jacob was great! My wife, my mother and I signed up for the Paella class. We were the only people there that day, so we got a lot of one-on-one attention from Jacob and worked right up front on the gas range. We learned some knife skills, a couple great recipes, enjoyed some wine (BYOW), ate some delicious food and had an all-around wonderful time. I highly recommend it!

What a wonderful afternoon. Chef Jacob was an amazing teacher, so informative and motivating. My son, daughter-in-law and I learned how to make gazpacho and authentic paella. It was absolutely delicious! We highly recommend any class taught by Chef Jacob. Bon appetit!
