Simply put, Chef Jackie Johnson is incredible. My wife and I along with another couple had Chef Jackie come to our home for a cooking lesson. Throughout the lesson, she was attentive toward all of us, gave us each individualized attention, and created an atmosphere that was engaging, fun, casual, and educational all at the same time. Her personality is very upbeat and you can tell in a matter of minutes that she is passionate about engaging and teaching others.
As someone that is an above average cook, it was great to have Jackie teach me additional techniques and have a dialogue on cooking topics that I was most interested in. At the same time, the other couple were more novice in the kitchen, and she was easily able to shift how she spoke to make sure everyone could understand their task and reasons for the specific approach to cooking.
Chef Jackie is authentic in her approach, provides excellent communication during the lesson, and gives you an experience that you will surely remember. Oh, and the came out fantastic.
I highly recommend Chef Jackie to anyone in the Northern Virginia area who either wants to take a private lesson in their home, or wants to host a small dinner party and would like to have a chef prepare the meal in full.
Thank you Chef for a wonderful experience, a great lesson, and empowering us to create great food!
