Enjoy the bounty of the Mediterranean Sea on the coast of Italy with Chef Landi.
In this hands-on class with Chef Landi, you will learn how to prepare a simple and elegant four-course Italian-inspired menu showcasing an array of succulent seafood.
You will begin by learning how to prepare a classic tomato bruschetta followed by a creamy batch of mushroom soup. Next, you'll create fettuccini pasta with steamed clams, mussels, shrimp and calamari, with your choice of a red tomato or white wine sauce. You'll end on a sweet note with handmade crêpes.
Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
One word to describe this experience.. AMAZING! My husband and I wanted to do something special to celebrate our anniversary and decided to do the seafood pasta cooking class. This was one of the greatest experiences we've had. Chef Landi made us feel right at home and the food was incredible. He is an amazing cook and gave us so many great tips that we are going to use in our kitchen! He is also full of great stories and makes great conversation. You will not be disappointed. Could not have asked for anything more!

Chef Landi immediately made us feel at home when we arrived at his place for our Italian seafood fare class. He had the recipes prepared for us with each course so that we could follow along and take the recipes home with us to recreate. He also encouraged us to get involved in each step of the cooking process if we were willing ☺️He sprinkled in tips and tricks as he went along, and included stories about his life experiences in Albania and Philadelphia. We loved every single course as it was perfectly seasoned and you could tell truly made with love. Highly recommend this experience!

Drawing on his Albanian heritage, Chef Landi cooks food that is influenced by the many cultures present in that region of the world. His food is beautiful to look at and even better tasting. He has a very warm and engaging soul that comes through in his food. Highly recommended!

Myself and 3 friends were looking for an awesome, out of the box cooking experience and Chef Landi delivered all that and more. He was extremely welcoming to us and made us feel comfortable right away. We learned so many helpful tips that we will take with us into our own kitchens, and he even had printed out recipes of all the food we made ready for us to take with. On top of it all, the food we made (creme brûlée, caprese salad, and gnocchi Bolognase) was some of the BEST food we’ve ever had. We would highly recommend Chef Landi and would absolutely go back to cook with him again. Thanks Chef Landi for an awesome night!

We absolutely loved our meals and I can’t wait to book with you again!

We had a great time taking Chef Landi's class! He made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Chef Landi went above and beyond to accommodate our dietary restrictions and we made gluten free gnocchi.

Our experience with Chef Landi was absolutely incredible!

I loved learning about his experiences working as a chef in different places and his ability to tie each of his experiences into a delicious menu. Each course was absolutely amazing and we are so eager to recreate this menu using everything he taught us! Thanks Chef Landi!

My wife and I had an amazing experience with Chef Landi. He welcomed us with his friendly personality. We chopped, diced, and prepped our meal while Chef Landi shared some of his vast culinary knowledge. The end product was a delicious 4 course meal that we now know how to make at home thanks to Chef Landi. I would recommend this class to everyone.

Best Chef Ever! We cooked the most amazing meal I have ever had. If you are looking for a great time you must try one of Chef Landi’s experiences!!
07 Feb 2021
Great food and better company! My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with a Cozy Meal Reservation and words can't explain how much I enjoyed the experience! Chef Landi provided an amazing step by step lesson to create the dish that was easy, informative and fun. The experience as a whole was intimate, intentional and a 10/10 experience I would recommend to everyone I know ( which I already am ). We enjoyed the food, which was delicious, but what brought it over the top was Landi's energy and personality that was such a pleasure to be around! This is a must!! We plan on scheduling another :)

One of the best cooking classes in the Philadelphia region! Took the gnocchi cooking class and the food was unbelievable! Chef Landi is very knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming! We had a blast and great experience for a date night out during the pandemic and felt very safe. Can’t wait to take another class. Would highly recommend Chef Landi to all!
30 Dec 2020
We had such a wonderful night with Chef Landi! He gave us great cooking tips, had us be involved in every step of the cooking process, and the food was superb. He even printed out the recipes for us to take home and try. Not to mention how lovely his company was - such a joy to just chat with him and hear his life stories. I also would like to point out that he made every effort to conduct his class safely during this pandemic; everything was clean, masks were worn, distance was kept. Highly recommend Chef Landi’s cooking classes!!
20 Nov 2020
Chef Landi was a delight! He was very careful to follow any and all safety precautions during our visit and made us feel right at home. The way he intertwined the cooking instruction with his own life experience with food made it all the more enjoyable. And to top it off the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend this experience to everyone.
15 Nov 2020
I booked this evening for my boyfriend birthday because we both love to cook and love to learn new things in the kitchen. The experience was more than expected and I have to thank Chef Landi for that. He made the night so much fun and so personal. By the end of the evening it felt like we were chatting with an extended family member! I would highly recommend a class with Chef Landi if you’re looking for a special evening!
07 Oct 2020
Chef Landi created an amazing experience for us. He is a very skilled chef and can communicate instructions very well. I highly recommend taking one of his classes.
27 Sep 2020

21 Sep 2020
It was an amazing experience! Chef Landi was so personable and the food was delicious. Not only was it fun and interactive, it was educational. It was great getting to ask him questions about cooking but to also learn skills. I would recommend Cozymeal to anyone, especially Chef Landi.
27 Jul 2020
We had an amazing experience. Chef Landi was fun and personable and we learned a lot while also enjoying great food.
26 Jul 2020
So much experience in life and in the kitchen. A chef came to our house but by the end we were saying goodbye to a long time friend. Detailed in every step and accommodating to the various skill levels in our group session. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed this.
25 Feb 2020
The experience my father and I had with chef Landi was amazing and well above and beyond expectations! We were immediately made to feel welcome by our gracious host. After some brief introductions and conversation about our level of cooking experience we got started. Chef Landi shared instruction, tips and tricks with us as well as some culinary history along the way. He included touching stories of some of his experiences throughout his culinary career. The food we prepared and cooked was amazing and it brought our culinary skills to the next level. As an experienced home cook, I was concerned that the we may not gain much in the way of knowledge, but I was mistaken. I'm so happy we had this experience and I can't wait to go back. Saluti!
14 Feb 2020
Just delightful in every sense. This was a surprise to my wife who is aspiring to be a chef and leave her software skills behind. Chef Landi did not just host us for a delicious experience but was humble enough to give a true insight of culinary industry and what to expect in that career. He walked us through the stories of his beginnings in Italy, Canada and how he fulfilled his destiny as a top chef.
Coming back to the class, chef Landi has a style for teaching culinary where he pairs his instructions with a metaphor which makes it easy to pick things. It was very hands-on right from knife skills, chopping to making dough to detailed techniques of using pasta machine. Learning how to decide on ingredients & pairing them for making sauce was very worthful. And finally, watching chef make creme brulee from scratch, and providing intricate details of the procedure gave us a totally different perspective on how to approach it.
All in all this experience gave us a lot more than we had expected and will be marked as a memorable moment of our lives. Thanks a lot Chef Landi and we hope to see you soon for another memorable conversation.
26 Jan 2020
Great experience. He made it easy to learn and explained everything in a way you could understand even if you don't cook. Very kind and welcoming. Makes you feel very comfortable. I will definitely book another meeting with him !
30 Dec 2019
We had a wonderful experience with Chef Landi! He was very professional, knowledgeable and engaging! Cooking is something my husband and I like to do together, and we both feel excited to have new meals to add to our repertoire! The only downside is now I have to get new attachments for our kitchen aid...lol. Thank you Chef Landi for an amazing experience neither of us will forget! Hopefully we will see you in future classes!
25 Oct 2019
Chef Landi was a wonderful host. He was a genuine, kind person and made the evening very enjoyable. I would hope that Cozy Meal compensates these chefs appropriately. I feel $85 apiece was a lot of money for the night and that a tip was not necessary.
17 Jul 2019
We had an amazing experience with Chef Landi! He was very knowledgeable about cooking and food in general. The food was absolutely amazing too! I highly recommend Chef Landi!
Chef Landi began his foray into the restaurant industry over 20 years ago as a server in Italy, and quickly found himself working in the kitchen, learning the skills and techniques that have been foundational to his now successful culinary career. In 2001, Chef Landi moved to the U.S. and discovered a newfound passion for teaching. Now, he is both a chef at an Argentinian steakhouse and a lauded culinary instructor.
