Chef Thomas was very welcoming and personable! We definitely feel confident that we could recreate these recipes at home, whereas before we probably would have assumed they were outside our capability.
After working in the restaurant industry for several years in a variety of roles, Chef Thomas left to pursue his passion of hosting and teaching cooking classes to share his professional culinary knowledge with others. American bistro-style fare is Chef Thomas' specialty, a beautiful mix of comfort, French and Italian cuisine. He also prides himself on simple and welcoming hospitality that sets the stage for an exciting experience!
