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.

Jeffery brought such a good vibe to our household and great food! He was so pleasant to learn from and was very welcoming of all our questions along the way. He was also very accommodating of our huge family present during his class; he made sure everyone is included and engaged. Thank you Jeff!
