Gather a group of friends together and attend one of James’ regional Italian or Spanish cooking class dinners. Don’t like to cook but like to eat? No problem, come hang out and watch the action. Email us with the dinner that most interests you and what dates you and your friends are available.

All classes start at $95 (varies according to menu and number of courses) per person (BYOB) and include detailed, step-by-step recipes. A minimum of 4 guests are required for this pricing. If your group is only 2 guests the cost for spending the evening with James is a flat $400. We are happy to customize the dinner to your liking (below are just a few examples of the options available – we can do nearly anything Italian or Spanish). All cooking class dinners include appetizers and a fantastic dessert from Spain called La Quesada (think flan meets cheesecake). We can accommodate vegetarian diets.

Arrange for a private gourmet dinner in the chef’s or your kitchen. Contact James to put together a customized menu for your event suited to your tastes and budget. James can host the event for you or bring his delectable dinners right to your home. Just sit down at your dinner table, look gorgeous and enjoy! Click here for an example menu.

Want to get a larger group of friends together for an outdoor Spanish paella party? For parties between 15 and 80 guests James will bring his paella operation right to your home. Email us for details and pricing.
