What You'll Get

You will receive a recipe file of the dishes you make as well as your own apron for you to take home. You will gain valuable knowledge and tips that Joe honed during his professional cooking career which will be invaluable for you in the kitchen. Your hands-on local cooking class will involve learning how to cook three of Joe’s most famous dishes, step by step. The cooking lesson will last about an hour.
