Our party of 6 had a great time learning how to make pasta from scratch. We were already good, long-time friends, but cooking together and eating what we cooked added something new and magical to our bond. Having Jordan as a chef was a blessing. He came well-prepared, brought all ingredients and cooking utensils. He walked us through the prep steps showing us and letting us try his techniques. The food at end was super delicious!

For Chef Jordan, cooking is truly an art form. He learned how to combine various flavors and aromas in a captivating way from several professional experiences, including at Eleven Madison Park, a three-star Michelin restaurant in New York, and experiencing the Spanish culture that helped him develop his own style of food. Chef Jordan, who has worked as a chef for many years, plans to spend the rest of his life learning new techniques and cooking styles.
