Guest reviews for Chef Kareem

Chef Kareem taught my stepson and me how to make the most delicious steaks, sides and dessert. He shared some great tips and tricks to get the best flavor from the meat, made sure we knew what was needed to replicate this at home, and did everything with enthusiasm and a great sense of humor. My stepson is 10 and he was so proud of what he achieved with Chef Kareem’s guidance. It has given him an enthusiasm to explore more foods and flavors. We will take another class with him as soon as possible! Such a wonderful experience - thank you, Kareem!
