Chef Yapo is great! He was so gracious with his time and even offered to walk my girlfriend and I through the entire process of the meal! We learned so much and are excited to do some more cooking on our own :)

Chef Yapo provided a great experience for my family! We bought the cooking class for my dad as a Christmas present because he loves cooking and being with family. He was extremely thorough. Brought all of the ingredients and everything that we needed. He provided us a lot of education about cooking and the ingredients. We never knew how much work it was to make ravioli but Chef Yapo made it easy! My dad and family loved the class! Thank you!!!

Chef Travels to You

Chef Yapo graduated from San Diego Culinary Institute and quickly learned that he loved talking about food with the customers more than working in the restaurant, so he started working for people directly with local and organic foods in 2009. Chef Yapo enjoys handmade pasta, unique flavors and global fusion flavors, and is very passionate about no-food-waste-cooking and teaching others how to do it.
