What a great experience, Chef Jeff was awesome! The food and presentation was fabulous. Jeff was extremely personable and friendly, he arrived on time and handled all the clean up! The best part of this experience was when Jeff explained the dishes in detail, also the portion sizes were very generous. Jeff checked in on us multiple times throughout the meal. Overall fun experience with some very tasty food! Can't wait to book again.

Chef Jeff was wonderful! He guided us through a delicious French meal. He accommodated our preferences in advance and taught us how to make the perfect steak. We also loved learning ratatouille, pommes aligot, and chocolate mousse. Jeff is kind, fun, professional, and laid back - and made the experience joyful and comfortable. We particularly appreciated that he would clean up for us between courses while we got to savor the food. Highly recommend!

Chef Jeffrey was incredible. This is my husband and I's first experience with Cozymeal and hiring a private chef experience altogether. Chef Jeffrey was patient, super friendly, lovely to chat with and detailed. The food was perfectly cooked and he made our wedding anniversary so special for us. I cannot thank him enough for such a lovely experience. For anyone looking for a personalized cooking class, work team social event or private chef experience, Chef Jeffrey is your guy. We will certainly be hiring you again. Thank you.
