John Scoff joined Home Cooking New York in 2006. After 15 years of restaurant work, culminating most recently as Executive Chef of a Low Country bistro in South Carolina, John continues to believe strongly in working with local, fresh ingredients. John's apprenticeships under several highly-regarded, award-winning chefs gave him the culinary expertise and the sense of professionalism he needed to become a well-respected restaurant chef. Then in 2004, John truly found his calling when he accepted a position as Executive Chef-Instructor at a recreational cooking school in historic downtown Charleston. As a teacher there, he discovered how much he enjoys sharing his passion for and knowledge of cuisine.

Attended: Six Basic Cooking Techniques

I spent this class learning things I'd never known before. I didn't even know how to hold a knife, didn't understand the importance of seasoning, or how to even tell a pan is hot. I took a bunch of notes and will practice everything I learned in that class. I had a wonderful experience and plan to take more at this cooking school.

Loved the course---- John the teacher was terrific! The class members were eager to participate. A great experience Thank you

Attended: How to Cook Fish

John was terrific, very thorough and easy to work with. It was a nice group of people and small enough to that you could ask as many questions and get detailed answers. The food we prepared was great. I will take another class with John. Only negative is the space which is not as professional looking as ICE or some others but the personality of the chef and his desire to teach us and watch us individually made it a wonderful experience.
