TAKE A LOOK AT OUR CALENDAR

"It was an amazing, fun, and team building experience! The food we cooked ended up tasting better than a five-star restaurant. Chef John is talented as a chef, as a host, and as a standup comedian. I can't imagine anyone going here and not having an awesome time. And, the team of people he has is equally amazing."
