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.

Ryan was informative, personable, and genuinely loves teaching classes. The food was absolutely amazing and made us excited to start making homemade pasta. If you’re hesistant Just book it you won’t be disappointed!!

Fun class. Especially enjoyed learning more some tips and tricks for choux pastry. Majority of class hands-on is cutting and frying. You're also free to experiment with your flavor combos, which is fun. Prepare to take home a lot of donuts!

Chef Ryan was great! My husband and I have made pasta before, but nothing ever turned out like the meals we ate during this class. It was a good balance of leaning, watching, and doing. This class is great for people of all cooking levels - nothing is too challenging. It was also fun to bring your own bottle of wine and chat with everyone around you. I highly recommend the class and look forward to taking more through Cozymeal.

Chef Ryan put together a really fun and interesting class. We made three different very tasty pastas, and the tools and techniques we used were unique and cool. We were there for a birthday party and everyone had a great time!
