Chef David came a long way, to the southwest suburbs, and was an absolute blast to have and an incredible instructor. He was high energy and kept us entertained with his own chef stories. The meal prep and cooking was a breeze with his expert instruction and the meal itself was delicious. Chef David's personality and culinary expertise were really a joy to experience.

This experience was so much fun! My partner and I both love to cook, but have never taken a formal class and had never made Southern food at home. It was great to have David walk us through everything step by step and even teach us some skills we'll be using everyday from here on out! David is so friendly and getting to know him during our lesson was the icing on the already great cake. We're super excited to make these recipes again for all of our friends and family.

Chef David was an awesome chef to work with! He brought a lot of energy, taught us a bunch of cooking skills/tips, and overall made the night an unforgettable experience. I couldn't recommend him enough!
