Although born and raised in San Jose, I have studied varied cuisines and was trained in baking and pastry at the Ritz Carlton, before moving back to the Bay Area. I have worked as Pastry Chef at Chez TJ which held two Michelin stars and as Chef de Cuisine of Baume Restaurant, which also earned two Michelin stars during my time there. My dishes are founded in comfort, thanks to my Italian heritage, and imbued with grace thanks to my classical French training.

This class was amazing -- my friend and I are complete beginners and Chef Ryan was a great teacher. The food was delicious and it was a super fun activity!

Amazing! Chef Ryan was so authentic and kind. His passion for teaching and food shows in a really comfortable and genuine way. You can tell that he really cares about what he does. This was my first Cozymeal class and was initially fearful that I'd mess everything up but Chef Ryan's approach in teaching made me feel that I can try making any of these dishes at home. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed his class and have already recommended others to take this class :)

Knew his stuff! Was fun to watch him work, learn about the donut making process, then make and eat donuts!
