Start with a take on BBQ shrimp using tiger prawns and Cajun seasoning, simmered in white wine. Then, master traditional jambalaya loaded up with chicken and andouille sausage served over rice with a side of hand-breaded fried okra.  End on a sweet note with bread pudding featuring juicy mango, peaches and a heavenly cream cheese icing.

Chef Darnell was amazing. We had him over for my birthday dinner. He was so patient and explained everything. The food was delicious and he left our kitchen even cleaner than before we started.
