I booked this experience with Chef James as a Christmas present from our grandma to her granddaughter. She's 11 and is interested in being chef. Chef James was wonderfully inviting and friendly from the moment we all stepped into his home, and enjoyed some cheese, meats, and anchovy stuffed olives. We then helped to cook the risotto, and enjoyed the fruits of our work :) The risotto was amazing, cooked perfectly and so flavorful! We also loved the dolce cake for dessert - it was a wonderful end to the evening. I would recommend this experience to anyone!

My team and I spent a terrific afternoon with Chef James! He couldn't have been more warm and friendly, and knowledgeable. It was like being in a friend's home, with the added benefit of having a top flight chef guiding you to make a delicious meal. Everything about the experience was first class, including the high quality ingredients. I would highly recommend this experience!
