Chef JD’s cooking class is sheer joy – a perfect combination of learning, entertainment, and enjoying a delicious meal. Chef JD makes such delicious food, has such an amazing personality, and is so welcoming, knowledgeable, and fun – he should really have his own show on the Food Network! Kudos also to assistant Gustavo – many thanks! Definitely book an experience with Chef JD for yourself and your next team-building event.
