We recently had the pleasure of welcoming Chef Juan into our home for a cooking lesson and meal, and the experience was nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment he arrived, Chef Juan's warm and engaging personality set the tone for a delightful evening. Not only did Chef Juan teach us invaluable cooking techniques, but he also prepared a meal that was simply exquisite. Every dish was a testament to his culinary expertise and passion for food. The flavors were well-balanced, and the presentation was beautiful. However, what truly made the evening special was the conversation. Chef Juan's cultural experiences, the Caribbean influence, and his culinary insights added a rich layer to the evening, making it an unforgettable experience. We felt like we were dining with an old friend rather than just learning from a chef. If you're looking for an exceptional culinary experience that combines great food and even better conversation, Chef Juan is your go-to person. We can't recommend him highly enough! Tracy & Doug

This was our first time taking a cooking class at home. Chef Juan exceeded our expectations! Our family enjoyed a wonderful evening learning about Hawaiian cuisine. My kids, age 12 and 14, had a great time as well. He shared with us his love of Hawaiian foods which was evident in his cooking. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience with over 20 years as a chef in Maui and the Hawaiian islands. We were so lucky to have such a great chef teach and cook for us. It was an excellent meal that transported us back to our favorite family vacation and memories. We can’t wait to do this again. It was a great family night to enjoy in your own home. Thank you Chef Juan!
