Our class with JE was awesome! He and his wife are very inviting and we had an excellent time. The food was delicious. We can't wait to try to make it on our own. I highly recommend the class to anyone!

We loved our southwestern cooking course with Chef JE and his wife. They are so sweet and the food was amazing! The class had four courses and was so informative. Chef JE was very thorough and explained everything so well. Everything he made tasted so good! He told us all about his culinary journey around the world and his skills show. We definitely recommend his class and would love to join him for another one whenever we are back in SA!
