Improvisational Cooking

Learn how to make delicious, quick meals with what you already have on hand.

Chef Brian will teach you how to stock your pantry, handle impromptu dinner parties, and turn week night dilemmas into fast, flavorful dinners.

Collectively, we'll prepare a fabulous, spontaneous meal.

Shop with you own personal chef

Shopping with Chef Brian

Roam your favorite food store or farmers' market with Chef Brian.

Chef Brian will use his expertise to teach you how to choose peak produce, the freshest seafood, and the perfect cut of meat.

Then, you'll take what you've purchased home and create recipes that make those main ingredients shine.

“Chef Brian's personal cooking class was great fun! He gave us many tips not only on the full course meal we were preparing, but other foods as well.

He is very knowledgeable, professional, and personable. And at the end of the night, we enjoyed a delicious meal.”

— Lisa Davies, North Raleigh
