My wife and I set up a cooking class at our house for our date night. It was extremely memorable and enjoyable!
Chef Jar is an excellent chef and is extremely engaging. He takes the time to explain every aspect and purpose of what he is doing as he cooks and is very patient to answer questions.
Chef Jar is also extremely organized and professional. I would highly recommend. Also, the food was absolutely amazing as well!

Chef Jar is a super fun personality to learn from. He is extremely knowledgeable and makes cooking fun. He taught me how to make a simple homemade brown sauce to top a juicy steak with. He talked about the importance of knowing the science of the ingredients and how they cook. I would love to learn more from Chef Jar another time.
Chef Jar is a passionate chef, a virtuoso of many diverse cuisines and the champion of several culinary competitions. After earning his culinary degree, Chef Jar traveled the world as a Hibachi and Teppanyaki Chef to bring his impressive dishes (and a little thrill) to hungry guests far and wide. He has studied nearly all types of culinary styles and techniques, but loves to explore Japanese, French, Indian and Latin cuisines.
