We had such a great time with Chef Jared! Jared was very laid back and clearly knew a lot about cooking. We let us participate as much or as little as we wanted, which we really appreciated. Our favorite part was the homemade hot sauces, but all of the food was fantastic. Chef Jared is also a great storyteller, and we'd definitely book him again!!

Chef Jared was amazing — he made complex dishes seem more approachable by offering simple tips and tricks. I definitely feel more confident in my cooking skills and will be trying some of these dishes at home. Jared adds some truly unique touches to each dish, including adding black truffles to his pooched lobster or sprinkling candied peanuts on a banana brulee. I ate a lot and learned some too!
