Chef Joni was an amazing teacher for our Paella for two class. She had everything laid out beautifully and even had a little snack area so we could munch while cooking. The first thing we made was Sangria, which was lovely to sip on throughout the class. She taught us new techniques for cutting veggies and also introduced us to new ingreidents we hadn't used before. She also made sure to capture all the moments for us, taking pictures, and really laying out her areas to be "instagram ready." We made paella but also a valencia orange cake which was so easy to make and tastey! The decorating of the desserts portion of the class was so fun! Our time with her flew by even though the class actually ran a little longer than scheduled! The result was amazing food and an amazing time. She even took us out to her garden to see the veggies she was growing. She was very kind and obviously passionate about her work. We had plenty of left over food and Sangria to take home. I highly recommend a class with Chef Joni!

I can't tell you how much fun it was to cook with Chef Joni. She is a unique individual, great attitude, always smiling. We did an authentic Italian meal including making pasta, a ragu stew, and tiramisu, all from scratch. There were 4 of us. We have been to many cooking classes/schools including several in Italy and other countries (we thought we would try something closer to home). We still learned several new and quite useful skills and techniques from Chef Joni with immediate applicability to when we prepare our own weekend meals. Chef Joni's venue is perfect for groups and I know that she would be fantastic for companies wanting to do team building among their executives and/or staffs. This experience was worth more than 5 stars - but that is all Cozymeal will allow. Joni will definitely be seeing us again.
