Great experience from a talented chef! Knowledgeable hands on cooking french classic recipes with an accent on quality and cooking technique. Enjoyable and personable with a quick wit. Thanks for an unforgettable time…
My husband and I had a great experience. Chef Alex & Amy were welcoming and knowledgeable. We learned new culinary techniques and how to cook a traditional French bistro dish (Steak au Poivre). We enjoyed a tasty French cocktail and met some cool people. I would definitely recommend this experience.
Chef Alex and his wife are marvelous hosts and the cooking class offers tips in French-style preparation along with a great dinner at the end.
We had a delightful experience cooking with Alex. The group was just the right size (6), so everyone got to pitch in with the chopping, peeling, and cooking in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Alex offered many helpful pro-tips, and the food (Salad Nicoise with tuna steak and Gougeres) was fresh and delicious. We’d go again in a heartbeat!
Very nice experience. Learned some tricks of the trade and made a very healthy meal. Alex is full of a love for cooking that is infectious! Beautiful home and welcoming setting.
Chef Alex and his wife Amy were excellent hosts. I enjoyed being in the kitchen and learning from a true professional. I have to admit, I’m jealous of the great pans and knives. The salad was unique and it was fun to learn new techniques. I’d highly recommend this experience to anyone.
We had a great time! Chef AlexG walked us through making a delicious meal—he was very friendly and sociable! Would recommend to anyone who has an interest in delicious food, or in learning some new culinary techniques!
Great way to spend an afternoon in St. Augustine. Had a lovely time w/ Chef Alex and got some valuable tips and tricks from him as well. We had a lovely meal and I would definitely recommend.
A truly wonderful evening! It was a memorable experience to be welcomed into Amy and Chef Alex’s lovely home for a fun and engaging cooking lesson followed by a delicious French meal around the table. A perfect balance of casual and comfortable while learning some new techniques and tips to take home. A truly unique and personalized local experience (accommodating food allergies, preferences, skill levels and selection of highest quality fresh ingredients and produce). Thank you, Amy and Alex, for sharing a flavor of St. Augustine and a night we’ll remember (including for our two teenagers).
An evening you will fondly remember. Amy and Chef Alex are great at making everyone feel welcome. We all did some of the food preparation and cooking. Chef Alex shared several stories and we had some good laughs too. The meal that we prepared turned out delicious. I would highly recommend!! Wished we lived closer!
These lovely people make you feel as if they’ve known you awhile and your coming over for the evening dinner!! They are very comfortable to be around. They don’t rush anything like they are just trying to get the money. It’s very relaxed and they take their time with you, teach you about the food and the different techniques. Wonderful experience and the food was delicious!! Taking a class with others made the evening more enjoyable as well! :)
Great and unique experience. It was 2 couples which was a good size for this experience. Lots of laughter with chef Alex. Thank you
Watch and enjoyable evening! No I don’t have the knowledge sharing the relaxed atmosphere, and great food. The stories were entertaining and wonderful. We will do this again!
I had a great night with Amy and Alex. I was traveling alone and they made me feel comfortable immediately.
There was lively conversation throughout the night with continual tips from chef Alex as we went along. He answered all questions even those unrelated to the dishes we were making.
I think I was fortunate there were just four students. It was the perfect size for participating.
Alex and Amy were very warm and welcoming as we entered their home for our evening of cooking and fun conversation. We chopped, sautéed, and stirred our way through the process of producing a delicious meal. Alex provided great tips and advice very naturally throughout the evening making it feel like we were making dinner with an old friend rather than someone we met just a minute ago. Alex was very accommodating with dietary restrictions and talked through the changes he made to adapt for everyone. My wife and I had a great time and highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting St. Augustine.
This experience is worth doing. We had a great time and learned a lot. I now have some helpful tools to help me do what I love to do. This was the first cooking class my husband and I have ever taken. We will for sure do this again next time we are in St Augustine. Chef Alex was very helpful and encouraging. If you enjoy learning new things and gaining wisdom from others then you will love this experience. It was nice to sit down at the end of the class and share meal with people you just meet I have missed doing that. So glad we can start to do that again.
We had a great evening. It was fun sharing a cooking experience with Chef Alex. He worked with us on the sauces we choose and gave us tips on where to find fresh seafood and vegetables in the area. Chef Alex was very personable and a great storyteller.
This couple truly are in the mood of pleasing you and give value. You learn, enjoy the dialogs that are sincere and real
We cooked with Chef Alex on January 15th. We had several occasions to celebrate and Chef Alex made sure everyone had a special experience. There were 8 of us in the group total. We felt we could have benefited (participated more in the cooking/asked more questions related to Chef Alex's cooking expertise, etc.) if there had been a smaller group. We nonetheless had a wonderful time. Chef Alex and his wife Amy were incredibly sweet and accommodating. It was a very unique and personal experience and most importantly our steak au poivre, bavette marchand de vin, sautéed baby potatoes, and french green beans were all delicious! We would come back to cook with Chef Alex again in a heartbeat if we could—highly recommend!
Absolutely wonderful experience! Amy and Chef Alex are great hosts, we had a fabulous time with them and the other guests, and the food was delicious. We learned a bunch of new tricks and look forward to coming back again. We are local and would recommend this for locals and visitors alike. Great experience from start to finish!
Our group of 2 couples enjoyed a Sunday brunch. Alex was quite entertaining with some good stories and Amy was so sweet to let our dog hang out with her outside along with her dog. We would definitely recommend this enjoyable time.

This is a must! Great couple, amazing hospitality and wonderful chef. We were all engaged in making the parts of the meal in a fun yet comfortable way. The food was amazing as the company and host.
Chef was so warm and amazing. Both Chef and Amy were friendly and accommodating. The lesson and food was everything we were hoping it would be. I could not recommendation this couple and experience enough. We will definitely rebook the next we are any where close to St. Augustine.
Our whole party enjoyed this experience and plan to do it again when we come back to Saint Augustine! Great hosts, great experience, great value!
Chef Alex and Amy truly made us feel a part of their home. What a great experience for friends to enjoy from participating in the meal prep, sharing stories about our experiences and enjoying a glass of vino with the Chef!
We will be back for another experience and a great meal on our next trip to St. Augustine
Amy and Alex make us feel like home. So kind and gentle. Its a local experience. We recommend 100%. See you next time.
Fabulous time learning to cook a French meal with Alex! And the food was AMAZING! We really enjoyed getting to know both Alex and Amy. Delightful hosts! We definitely recommend this experience to others!
We really enjoyed our cooking experience with Alex and Amy. Besides, that, we learned many different new cooking tricks. That's a great combination of having fun with family and friends when you visit St Augustine. We would definitely do it again. Thanks Alex and Amy.
Amazing Experience! Far exceeded our expectations. We were greeted at the door and instantly made a connection after the first introduction. Amy and Alex created a warm and welcoming, and very clean environment. The experience was not just about cooking but about sharing our experiences with one another. While we told stories, Alex gave us step-by-step explanations and we learned by joining Alex and Amy in preparing the meal. There’s something magical about preparing a meal together with strangers, and within a few minutes we were sharing our own personal journeys. The food was super-fresh and healthy. They have two beautiful cats and a handsome and polite dog. They didn’t bother us at all but allowed us to feel at home and welcome. Messaging Amy in preparation for the dinner was prompt and informational, helping us decide on our menu. We chose the salad Nicoise. The ingredients were intentionally and conscientiously chosen for freshness. Even though we are from Louisiana and know how to cook, we learned a lot of new tips. Dinner was served on their quaint dining table where we continued sharing stories and making connections. Even the bottle of wine Alex served us had a unique story. I can’t wait to visit Florida again so we can partake in another experience with Alex and Amy, and the neighbor who we also made a great connection with and laughed with. I highly highly recommend this experience.
