Chef Ahki will begin by teaching you how to poach oysters in a homemade garlic butter white wine sauce. Then, you will learn how to build layers of flavor in a New Orleans-style BBQ shrimp and grits with Gouda cheese before ending on a sweet note with white chocolate and rum bread pudding for dessert.

Chef Ahki has a deliciously innovative style that is truly original. The way he combines flavor profiles is something you must experience first hand. Not only does he know what he’s doing in the kitchen, he also knows how to deliver it to the table. I had such a great time learning from him! You can tell he loves to feed people, and it shows in the food he makes. What a treat!
