Cooking is my passion. There is almost nothing I love more than throwing dinner parties for my friends and coming up with wonderful and creative dishes.
The combination of the creative process, the planning and preparation of the dishes, and the act of giving to my friends is quite simply very rewarding. The intensity and focus that cooking requires is also extremely satisfying.
I've had the privilege of cooking with some of the most amazing home cooks and chefs around the world and here in the Bay Area, and I bring that knowledge and expertise to every dish that I make.
Whether you're looking for a private dinner party, a cooking class or anything in between, I hope you choose to EatWith me.
Our family of three spent a very enjoyable evening at James' beautiful home. He's a well-traveled and welcoming host who shared his knowledge of international cuisine with us, and presented a tasty and memorable dinner. The guys had a blast learning how to prepare gnocchi, and now we must buy a ricer so we can attempt it at home. Highly recommended.

James is an incredible chef and such a cool person. Also, his apartment is AMAZING! (Be sure to check out the vintage yellow stove that he has - incredible).
It was truly a special treat to be able to dine (and learn how to cook) with James. This is the kind of special experience you just can't get in a restaurant!
