Guest pastry chef Josh Graves will offer milk chocolate with hazelnut and caramel as well as pistachio and lemon.

According to ABC News:

McGarry began his cooking career three years ago and said it was something he was instantly drawn too.

"It was to the point that I wanted to do this as much as I could do it. And [it was] after looking at all these cookbooks and going on the Internet and looking at these dishes that I thought, 'I could achieve that one day,'" McGarry said. "I thought, every time I try it, I hope to keep getting better and better. I just fell in love with it."

He said his mother's cooking was another "inspiration" for his desire to cook. ...

The real "I want to be a chef" moment, came when McGarry decided to create his own dishes. He said a year later, when his skills in the kitchen got better, he was able to cook his way through the majority of the cookbook. ...

McGarry, along with his mother, Meg McGarry, created Eureka, his supper club pop-up business that hosts monthly dinner parties inside his home.

McGarry has cooked for more than 120 people at a time and worked in top restaurants across the country. His monthly dinner parties feature an 18-course meal for 12 people.
