We really enjoyed our class with Chef Jalen! He was very knowledgeable and organized. He was such a good teacher as he kept us engaged and answered all of our questions. We learned some great new tips and techniques that will help us recreate these wonderful dishes. I highly recommend Chef Jalen to all those in Charlotte!
