Josh is a super talented and sharp chef! His breadth of knowledge is really impressive, but he's able to share it in such a way that isn't intimidating at all. I was so fascinated by the way he plates his food, and feel like I really learned a lot in just a couple of hours. I'd take another class with him, or try a private dining experience to just relax and be pampered!
