I booked Chef Chris' class for my husband's birthday as a surprise and we both absolutely loved cooking with him. He was very professional throughout the entire class, shared numerous insightful tips and techniques along the way that we are excited to put into practice at home but most of all he was so humble. Learning from someone with an incredible amount of experience who patiently answered our many questions and encouraged us to be hands on made the day that much more enjoyable. Thanks so much for hosting us and making the day a memorable one :)

We gave our two 20 year old granddaughters a cooking course with Chef Christopher. Neither had much experience and we wanted Chef Chris to concentrate on knife safety/technique as well as food safety. He did both as well as made the « chicken centered » meal a entertaining evening. And we quote »I loved the atmosphere of the house and I learned how to carve a chicken. He taught some of the chemistry behind cooking and flavors which I thought was really cool. He and his mom were both very nice and I would do it again ».

Chef Chris was a pleasure to work with. He was very hospitable and easy to talk with. As he was making his dishes he was very informative as well. His working environment was so much fun to be in being funky and colorful. The food he made was delicious as well, many personal touches to make them one of a kind! His space was clean and presentable as well as the restroom. I would recommend Chris chef to everyone!!
