However, there is another really smart option: take a class with Chef Jean Pierre! You will enjoy an exquisite three-entree dinner, plus a great, thorough, fun, step by step cooking lesson. Chef Jean Pierre will entertain you... More

He truly loves cooking and teaching--and he is excellent at both. We have sent several friends to Chef JP's, and every single one of them has loved the experience. This culinary night out is not...

We went to Chef Jean Pierre's cooking class and dinner last night and it was an excellent, entertaining evening with the high energy, passionate french chef. The explanations and tips were helpful to any level of cook and the food itself was of the highest cordon blue standards. A delicious evening!~

Just had several incredible dishes at Chef Jean-Pierre's Cooking School. He showed us an awesome preparation for stuffed duck breasts. It involves wrapping in bacon. I know, I know, everything is better with bacon, but believe me, it was never more true. Also, taught us one of the best Risottos I've ever had. This was my second visit, and both... More

There are few unique places to go that is different from the ordinary dinner and movie night out in South Florida. But Chef Jean Pierre's cooking school changes that all up.
