My husband and I learned so much from Chef Yapo about how to peel ginger (i’be been doing it the hard way for years), peel and chop garlic, and how to season fresh fish. Cooking was fun and didn’t feel like a chore. The menu he selected was delicious. We were both so proud of our time in the kitchen and can’t wait to do it again with our family and friends.

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.
