Chef Isaac began navigating the kitchen at a young age under the tutelage of his father and draws upon his experience when teaching epicureans in more than 12 varied classes. Specializing in vibrantly flavored, multicultural fare, the accomplished culinarian spices students’ lives with specialized lessons in cuisines ranging from southern Italy to comfort foods. In the Southern Italian class, apprentice chefs bathe pastas in meat, cheese, and cream sauces while exploring the culture, wines, and vintage chef couture of the region. Participants snuggle up to three recipes in the Comfort Foods class, with dishes ranging from five-cheese mac ‘n’ cheese to vegetable-infused meatloaf, or feast on diabetic-friendly diets and learn about the glycemic index in Cuisine for Diabetics. The two-day Thanksgiving class, taught only in gobbles every Sunday and Friday at 11 a.m. in November, masters a menu of 10 dishes that includes herb-roasted turkey, homemade stuffing, and candied yams. Each class includes a tasting or meal, so pupils can sample their food creations.
During the couples cooking class, duos of all types sip on wine or beer from home while mastering dishes from more than 10 different culinary fields including tapas from Spain, entrees from Vietnam, and dippables from Fondue, Nebraska. After creating an entire menu with the help of Isaac, pairs enjoy a quiet feast in the comfort of Isaac’s dining room.
Thanksgiving classes will be held at the West Saginaw location.

Chef Isaac introduces foodies to a palate-pleasing style of cooking he learned under the tutelage of his father, a student of legendary recipe maker Julia Child. While lingering in the aromas and sung notes that filled his childhood kitchen, he soaked up the skills that would lead him to create a menu that was praised by Dine Michigan. Roasted chicken tempts tongues alongside barbecue ribs, sliced pork tenderloin in a white-wine sauce, and handmade meatballs with vegetable-infused tomato sauce. One who vows to leave stomachs satisfied, Chef Isaac pairs his entrees with gourmet takes on mac 'n' cheese or warm spinach salad and ends meals with a sweet note, such as the apple flambé, which sizzles and spits like a surly tea kettle.
After experiencing a particularly long wait at a restaurant one evening, Chef Isaac decided to expand his culinary reach into the homes and minds of his clientele with a slew of delicious services. Cooking classes divulge his techniques with comfort foods and healthy cooking or guide students through the creation of specific dishes such as stuffed pasta with meatballs. Chef Isaac also brings his skills and signature menu into patrons' homes, thereby freeing up more time for them to spend with their families or search for patterns in taped episodes of Press Your Luck.
