I'm happy to say that I've been able to apply the techniques learned since returning home. Chef Pierre does a wonderful job of keeping you engaged. The food is out of this world!!!!!!!!!!! Come hungry. It's a BYOB setup... More

The coolest cooking school experience! Chef Jean-Pierre, along with his skilled teammates, delivered a yummy experience. He weaved humor and creativity in with his multi-decade culinary experience to create a memorable evening. Class was filled with 24 eager and hungry folks. Beef tenderloin was on the menu along with several great accompaniments all prepared and served expertly. Sparkling clean emporium... More

It was a surprise, it was wonderful, and can't wait to go back. Jean Pierre and his staff were terrific. The food was great and after many years of cooking for friends, clients, family, I still learned some new tricks. It truly was a special evening. I still have not stopped talking about it.

I found Chef Jean Pierre's on Trip Advisor and obviously couldn't pass it up after his amazing reviews. There is parking on site if you were to need it which was nice.

You can select the type of food or cooking that you would like to learn about and experience. Pick up cooking tips that are not mentioned in cook books if a friendly open environment.

One of the best demonstration cooking classes I have been too. I always learn something new from Jean Pierre. I always tell my friends that if he were not cooking I would still go because he could have a second job as a standup comedian. You always have fun at his classes and his food is delicious with lots of... More
