**********Prices May Vary**********
Cook with one of the more respected chefs in the area. You’ll get first hand experience on learning why Maryland is the land of Seafood. We will discuss cooking with fresh crab and other seafood items popular to Maryland. You’ll learn everything there is to know about how to make my top notch chef’s special jumbo lump crab cake. Learn why it’s important to use certain types of crab meat vs others. I’ll give you all the little secrets that will make your crab cake a difference maker to take back to your family and friends. Also, I’ll show how adding ingredients can make a difference for any cook, but adding a certain type of quality ingredient separates you even more as a cook. You’ll learn how to make the perfect complimentary sides to your crab cakes. Finally, top it off this a lemon-butter sauce to die for. Wrap up the evening with a nice piece of dessert and wine.

Hakeem was fantastic! It felt like I was at a friend's home for dinner. We talked, laughed, and made a great meal together. The only problem I had was he didn't have enough Apple crown stashed away. (Angry emoji) LOL! I recommend this experience for anyone. He goes the extra mile! He bought flowers and the wine my wife loves just to make the experience more personal. We'll be back next time we visit baltimore. I could careless if we prepare the same meal! Dude is solid.

We came to this Crab cake experience for my girlfriend's bday and it was a really great experience. As a MD native I really enjoyed my meal and the relaxed atmosphere.

I highly recommend this class, Hakeem is a culinary genius and he has a lot of respect and passion for his craft. If you are ever in the Crab capital Baltimore, this experience is a must.

This experience with Chef Keem was amazing. It was the perfect birthday surprise dinner for my husband. The crabcakes were delicious and we had enough leftover for dinner the next day. The location is at his residence but we felt that made the experience more comfortable and intimate. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and look forward to booking more experiences with Hakeem in the future.
