I first heard Chef Johnny Carino speak in 2015 at a conference in Jacksonville, Florida and immediately knew I needed to find a way to get him involved in our school foodservice program. Chef Johnny is an energetic and passionate chef that loves helping others through the sharing of his life’s vast experiences in the restaurant industry.
Chef Johnny has worked with me and my team on multiple occasions since our first meeting including speaking with our Culinary Arts students, numerous live cooking events, and a number of recipe development sessions. Chef Johnny’s recipes have been great additions to our school menus and are huge favorites for our 76,000 students.

Chef Johnny Carino's cooking classes on St Simons Island, Ga are amazing! What a fun way to spend a Saturday evening, in a gorgeous kitchen and bath design store with friends, enjoying a fantastic dinner by Johnny that includes stories, culinary history, laughter and relaxation...oh and good wine. You'll sign up for the next class before you leave, I promise you. Chef Johnny Carino's talents are what St. Simons Island has been waiting for and now he offers private cooking events in your home. Hurry and sign up, he sells out fast!

Tonite was my first opportunity to try One of Chef Johnny Carino's meals and it was positively one of the best and most healthy meals I have ever had! I had the meatloaf, baked potato, and brocolli. The meatloaf was so moist and full of flavor, it left you wondering just what was in it! I would definitely recommend Chef Johnny to anyone who appreciates good meals done right!

What my Customers Say

I attended a cooking class with Chef Johnny Carino on St. Simons Island and let me tell you it was nothing short of amazing! Chef Carino is funny and engaging, while cooking a mean meal. The food was mouthwateringly delicious and the evening with the Chef was delightful. The surroundings of Simmer & Soak were lovely and a perfect setting for a wonderful evening. Whether it is a cooking class at Simmer & Soak or a private event in your home, you will not regret an evening with Chef Carino!
