Great, intimate experience. Food and cooking class were excellent. Pre-meal snack was lovely. Chef James really knows his stuff and was really patient explaining everything. Market tour was pretty short and could be better structured.

Chef James was great. He answered our questions, was very welcoming and overall a lovely host. It was a great escape from the office for our team of 8 people.

We had a fun night with Chef James. We bought food together at a market and then joined him in his kitchen for the prep and then meal. By one critique is that I wish there was more content to the evening--meaning learning more, hearing more stories about what we were eating and the style of cooking. Overall, the food was fantastic.
