This is the perfect activity to gift a friend: trying something new over quality food and with great teachers! I gifted this experience to my best friend; We felt right at home and the chefs made the experience fun & relaxed. The chefs do most of the prep work so we could get to the fun parts, and there was more than plenty of food to go around.

As the founder of a tech startup it can be challenging to find team building activities that really get a team to really connect at a level deeper than can be achieved through going bowling, having a fancy dinner, or meeting for happy hour. When I told my team about Cozymeal’s cooking classes, they were all very excited about the idea! It’s one thing to be able to eat together, but it’s so much more enjoyable to prepare the food together first. When I was searching for a provider, like many people, I looked for reviews on Yelp and Cozymeal fit the bill perfectly; an activity that was fun, professional, and something very affordable with great chefs to learn from. I plan to book again not only with my team, but also with friends and family :-)

I attended a cooking class my husband booked with Chef Robert. It was a tremendous experience. We went to the chef’s residence, had a great deal of fun, and the booking process was incredibly easy and convenient.

We had an outstanding experience with Chef Robert and Mrs. Chef ! From the minute we walked in the door, they made us feel welcome and engaged us in the preparation of our meal. Each course was delicious and beautifully presented. They are passionate about culinary art and nutrition science sharing many tips and techniques which has inspired us to experiment in our own kitchen. Many Thanks!

Chef Robert and Mrs. Chef hosted the perfect Valentine's Day evening for our party of 4! We enjoyed a well tailored evening of relaxation, learning about the chemistry of food and getting hands-on experience in the kitchen. Of course the highlight of the evening was enjoying one of the best meals we have had in Seattle! Chef and his wife created new recipes to meet one of our guest's dietary needs and the results were amazing! I highly recommend this experience and we certainly plan to book again!

Now for the fine dining ! What a treat to dine on this perfectly prepared meal, balanced in taste, color, texture and flavors. Of course your finale ... Just the right size homemade Barvarian cheesecake, creamy but not too rich, beautifully presented and garnished with handmade chocolate truffles, so yummy! Such a memorable meal. Fun conclusion with the slide show of our evening and the gift of pictures taken by Mrs Chef throughout our evening! My family remarked on how it was enjoyed start to finish! Chef Robert and Mrs Chef made our evening , they shared a lot of cooking knowledge , and definitely the experience of fine dining ! They were both so pleasant to be around, hope we didn't overstay our welcome :) We will recommend this wonderful experience to others.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Pacific Northwest Cuisine Cozymeal cooking experience with Chef Robert and Mrs. Chef. They immediately made us feel welcome and inquired about what we wanted out of the Cozymeal in an effort to personalize the experience. Our conversations were rich and engaging. They showed us how to put together a 5 star meal with ingredients that you could easily find at a local store. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a personalized cooking class! Thank you Chef Robert & Mrs. Chef.

My wife and I had a fantastic experience. Most of the prep work for the meal was done ahead of time and we got to actively participate in preparation. We learned some knife skills, tasted unique spices and had a wonderful time getting to know Chef Robert and his wife. I would recommend this to everyone!
