Chef Darin was exceptionally knowledgeable and interesting and our dinner was even more delicious than expected!
In order to distill that list into ranking top chefs, we first need to ask ourselves a question: What exactly is a top chef? You would be happy to know we found him, Chef Darin. He is a culinary master very dedicated to excellence and such a delightful personality while he is demonstrating the ease in prepared his low country chicken society. Laura and I (Andre’) took his culinary class and the highlights were the active hands-on (each couple actively involved in the preparation and process) and the culinary tips; ranging from cutting skills to the ambient cooking temperature techniques, and at the end a delicious meal. He was open to discussing options and why he selected those particular ingredients for his menu. High-end chefs when demonstrating a recipe often favor glitzy, fast-food operations, and design their menus based on what’s not affordable and tasty. Chef Darin, a respected chef in his community with a social conscience, is doing the opposite with his cooking classes. Upon my return to Savannah the plan is to spend a day with Chef Darin; In advance, I know this will be another sure-fired culinary experience of a lifetime.
This was a great trip. I went with a girlfriend who does not cook while I love to cook. We each enjoyed the class. The content was interesting to us both and we each learned something. This is a great class, no matter your skill level.

He was very informative in his presentation! Easy to listen to, and the food turned out to be outstanding. I would go back and do another class again! I recommend it highly !!!
Chef Darin did an excellent job leading the participants through the full process of completing a fried chicken dinner everyone would be pleased to serve family and friends. There is plenty of hands on participation so you don't leave wondering if you can replicate the meal at home. You did it under his watchful and encouraging gaze and leave with all the recipes in hand. It is a great couples evening out. You get to interact creating and eating a great meal. We will be back to participate in additional classes to learn more techniques and try new foods.
