To start, everyone will work together to create a restaurant-worthy crispy red snapper croquette with a creamy remoulade. Next, they’ll learn how to prepare sweet and savory honey butter fried chicken with creamy Parmesan grits on the side. This class will end on a super sweet note with heavenly buttermilk apple fritters smothered in a cinnamon icing.

Chef Jimi was great! Both my wife and myself enjoyed the fantastic meals he prepared for us to celebrate Mother’s Day 22’. We would definitely book him again, despite a hiccup in timing- we were very satisfied and I’m sure you would be also if you booked him!
