A Note From Chef Joe

Over the last sixteen years, we have been blessed with the opportunity to cook and entertain clients from around the world. We have not only created many wonderful memories, but have made friendships that will last a lifetime.

Some of our fondest memories include: basic cooking classes, women’s getaways, couples date nights, cooks clubs, class reunions, team building, surprise birthday parties, children’s classes, and all of the foodies that enjoyed a good meal.

We are officially announcing the last class for Chef Joe Randall’s Cooking School will be December 23, 2016. It is time for us to move on to the next chapter of our lives.

We truly appreciate all of our loyal and dedicated friends for their patronage and support over the past sixteen years. It has been a joyful, wonderful and unforgettable chapter to say the least!

Chef Joe Randall to call it quits at Savannah cooking school at year’s end

From the Savannah Morning News: Chef Joe Randall’s 53-year career in culinary arts has taken him from being a 90-cents-an hour kitchen apprentice to world-renowned chef and protector of the heritage of Southern cuisine.

In Savannah since January 1999, he has taught two generations of “food enthusiast cooks” during his 16 years at his cooking school at 5409 Waters Ave.

That career has earned him the title of “Dean of Southern Cuisine” from Cuisine Noir magazine in 2014 among other accolades.

Welcome To Chef Joe Randall’s Cooking School

I created Chef Joe Randall’s Cooking School in the fall of 2000, as a facility where I could use the food of the South, the Low Country, and the Atlantic Georgia Coast as a vehicle to dispel the myths and misconceptions many visitors and locals alike held about Savannah and her cuisine. In short, I wanted to be able to bring the great treasures of this coastal region as close to peoples’ homes as their own kitchens, and with a style all my own.

Chef Joe and Barbara Randall

 I preach the gospel of authentic Southern cuisine to all comers. The success of the school is a credit to my great love of southern cuisine and the city of Savannah. I am proud to say that I have been able to share the heritage and southern culture with visitors from all over the world. For over fourteen years, I’ve shared my passion for Southern food and culture with the Savannah metropolitan region and beyond, and one day I’d like to share it with you.

We serve hearty portions – remember to eat lightly on the day of your class.
