Chef James was fantastic! The dish we made seemed simple from the face of it, but he showed us tips and tricks to make it an amazing meal for our "stay in date night". Thanks again!

What a great meal! We had a blast cooking with Chef James and cooked a full steak dinner that could easily be served at a posh steakhouse. The recipes were straightforward, easy to follow at a relaxed pace, and tasted great. Perfect date night, thank you!

Chef James is a font of knowledge and my very talkative family only energized his teaching! He listened to all of our travel food stories with delight and answered all of our questions. We’re hoping to book his Paella class soon!
