This was our second class with Chef Zach and we were just as impressed as we were the first time! The food was great, he was a wonderful teacher and patient, and just fun guy to spend a few hours with.

I thought Chef Zach was great; very engaging and informative regarding technique and ingredients. I would consider taking another class from him. The Tri-color pasta was fantastic and dessert was wonderful.
09 Sep 2022
We were unsure which course to take but decided to go with the Italian since we wanted to give Pasta making a try. What a wonderful choice that was!!! Zach walked us meticulously through the process for each course, answered questions with a great amount of historical info, and lots of fun commentary meant to engage everyone. Zach made sure to make us all feel at home and engaged along the way. Each course was truly amazing and the fact that we all helped prepare it made it all the more special. I'm over my fear of making pasta at home!!! Thanks Zach!

17 Oct 2021
This was me and my girlfriends first time with a private chef cooking class and this experience was amazing. Chef Zack was welcoming, funny, energetic and a great teacher. He broke down our theme, gave us history of simple ingredients we use everyday and was open to all questions we had.. and we had a lot! The atmosphere was awesome and coupled with the food and wine, WOW! The food was very very good - down to the salad and dessert! I don’t want to give away to much about the class but all and all I highly recommend this class and we will be coming back to see what else Chef Zack has to offer. Thank you!

29 Dec 2019
We really enjoyed our delicious dinner and all the new techniques and skills we learned! I booked this experience as a Christmas gift for my 24 year old son. I think he was a little apprehensive about what I had gotten him into, but we really enjoyed getting to know Zach and all of our new cooking skills. Wonderful new knowledge for a beginner cook and plenty of helpful tips for me also. Thanks, Zach!

22 May 2023
Chef Zach was INCREDIBLE! My boyfriend and I ended up having a private cooking session, and we had such a great date night. Not only was the food delicious, but Zach was super knowledgeable and taught us about the origins of the recipe as well as ways to best recreate the meal (because we most definitely will). Zach went above and beyond, curating a French bistro environment to match our French meal, and was such a pleasure to chat with during our time together. Would 10/10 recommend booking a meal with Zach, you won't be disappointed!!
21 May 2023

Great food and stories.
17 Mar 2022
If I could give more than 5 stars I would!!! This was a birthday adventure for my daughter and there was zero disappointment!! The “cozy” part of the name was the home class. The Mediterranean themed food was AMAZING and my daughter got the input, experience and fun I was hoping she’d get.
03 Mar 2022
Amazing class will absolutely be back for another.
01 Mar 2022
I booked the French night with Zach as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday - we both absolutely loved it and had a fabulous night! I've been home cooking for ages but still picked up some great tips. The food was delicious, the ambience was perfect, the other guests were a delight and Zach was very entertaining, knowledgeable and full of great stories. Highly recommended. Thank you Zach!

15 Jan 2022
Chef Zach was absolutely delicious in all the best ways. His place was adorable and well decorated, he has an inviting personality and the meal was excellent. We enjoyed our French class with him. Thanks Chef Zach!
12 Jan 2022
Chef Zachs 'Journey Through Brazil' class was nothing less than perfection. This was a gift I had given my boyfriend for Christmas as an experience for us to do together. Not only did we get to experience some delicious food but we got the opportunity to relearn some cooking techniques such as how to properly cut vegetables or hold a knife. A wonderful experience from start to finish and would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in trying out a cooking class. We are looking forward to coming back and trying another class with him!
30 Dec 2021
So that's how you dice an onion! Chef Zach provided a fun, rich learning experience for a cuisine I knew little about, Brazil. My sisters and I had fun! Thanks Chef!
21 Dec 2021
Chef Zach is engaging and very flexible; he can offer high-level beginner instructions or get into nitty gritty details for the curious.
15 Dec 2021
The class with Zach was amazing!! I’ll definitely be coming back for another and would absolutely recommend to anyone interested in learning to cook, eating awesome food, or meeting some super nice people! Thank you so much for a fantastic experience.
11 Dec 2021
Chef Zach was AWESOME. We had a fantastic time. He taught us knife skills, educated us on the history of the foods we were eating, and gave us a ton of overall cooking tips. This is hands down, the best cooking class I've ever taken and was 100x better than any in-store class I've seen. Zach had photos scrolling on his TV of his trips to Brazil and this showed us that we truly had an authentic experience as well as he has spent so much time in Brazil. It's easy to see that he has a passion for what he does and that shines through in creating a welcoming, cozy, and educational experience. I've felt frustrated when going to some cooking classes as it feels too rigid or like you're not always able to get 1:1 lessons. Taking a class like this in the chef's kitchen was incredible. Everything felt very personalized. On top of that, it was a ton of fun. If you're on the fence about which class to take, the Brazilian class w/Chef Zach is incredible as you get to try different flavor combinations and learn things you can easily do at home. He even gave us some some basic lessons in speaking Brazilian Portuguese. We even went home with plenty of leftovers that we cannot wait to eat. My husband & I have already argued about who gets to eat the rest of the brigadeiros. Sidenote: I'd love if Cozymeal would let me post photos of the class with this review as that would have been helpful when booking.
05 Dec 2021
Zach is fantadtic! His home is welcoming and personality really makes the event feel special. Highly recomend going with your partner if you're looking for an intimitate moment.
19 Nov 2021
We had such a fun time
13 Nov 2021
We had a great time with Chef Zach's class "Exploring Regional French Fare" . Chef Zach is charming, insightful, and a very skilled culinary artist. He answered all of our questions, gave us great tips to take home, and had an immaculate kitchen. I am looking forward to trying his other classes.
28 Aug 2021
We had a wonderful time and great food. Will definitely book again!
16 Aug 2021
Chef Zach is an extraordinary chef with true passion for creating and teaching about amazingly tasty food! He has traveled to the countries he teaches about--Brazil, Paris, Greece, etc--and it show in his polished and comprehensive approach...along with his friendly, down-to-earth attitude and caring teaching style. Don't miss the chance to learn with him!
15 Aug 2021
Zach was amazing and made the experience very personal. His stories of his travels, the culture and the origins of the meal were informative but also very interesting. Can’t wait to go back and attend another one of his classes . Mark & Jennifer
22 Jun 2021
My boyfriend and I had the most amazing cooking experience with Chef Zach. We did the French cuisine class. He was very informative gave us great tips in regards to preparation of the meals. The atmosphere was amazing and he gave us a history lesson of the areas of the country that inspired the French dishes along with the differences. I would definitely recommend this class for anyone who wants to learn or just have a great experience!
28 Oct 2020
Zach is wonderful, very entertaining, and was an absolute blast to talk to. He also gave us so many useful every day cooking tips in addition to teaching us how to make the wonderful French dishes we enjoyed that night. I HIGHLY recommend him for a date night!
23 Oct 2020
Chef Zach was an incredibly welcoming and patient instructor. The food was absolutely delicious! We can't wait to share these meals with our family!
14 Sep 2020
We had a great time learning from and cooking with chef Zach! Food means so much more when you learn the history behind it. Not only did we make a 4 course Brazilian meal with my partner, we learned where the dishes came from and what cultural groups influenced each dish: fish stew, brigadeiros, and pao de queijo. The food was tasty with complex flavors that was created with attention and care. I can't believe how easy it is to make pao de queijo; much easier to make than pronounce, for me. Chef Zach was personable, engaging and patient. We learned not only how to cook the dishes but also several useful cooking skills and techniques we plan to use moving forward.
02 Aug 2020
Chef Zach is amazing!!! I took the Flavors of Greece class and it was delicious. I went with my oldest daughter and he taught us all the tricks of how to use the knife, how to combine herbs and explained step by step the recipe while we were making it. He also had the printout for us to take home. I am so glad that I decided for this class. I highly recommend it, never tasted such a delicious Greek meal. Also, we all kept our masks at all times and our distance. Everything is clean and he even had Greek music and pictures of his trip to Greece. Thanks Chef!
08 Jul 2020
Chef Zach was wonderful teacher for my 14 year old granddaughter Zoey. She greatly enjoyed the class and I would highly recommend his courses. Provided simple explanations that you can use in daily cooking. We will definitely be taken another course from him. Bravo and thank you Chef.
14 Mar 2020
Seriously the best night! All of the food was amazing. Chef Zach took time and answered all my wanna be a chef questions. He is a wealth of knowledge and fun! Can’t wait to try another class.
13 Mar 2020
Cooking with Chef Zach was a delight. He's knowledgeable, patient, and presents everything in a friendly and easy to digest manner. No pun intended.
22 Feb 2020
Chef Zach was wonderful, entertaining, and personable from start to finish. He educated us about French cuisine throughout our meal, walked us through each step, and was a true professional. Our meal was delicious. We left with full bellies and would highly recommend!
17 Feb 2020
What an amazing experience! Chef Zach was so accommodating and even gave us some tips on safe knife handling, how to properly zest a lime, how to peel ginger, etc. as part of our lesson. It was also wonderful to learn more about Brazil and even some Portuguese as part of the lesson. The food was amazing and we learned so much! Five stars!
16 Feb 2020
Absolutely awesome experience! Chef Zach was very welcoming and tried to accommodate everyone's needs or (in my case) dietary restrictions :) The atmosphere was fun and friendly, Zach shared different cooking tips and tricks along the way. The food was delicious, and we got to keep the recipes and lots of inspiration. We enjoyed this experience greatly and will definitely try other classes. Thanks once again to Chef Zach for hosting us and sharing his culinary expertise!
15 Feb 2020
Had a great time and learned along the way. Very clean location, and excellent teaching technique.
09 Feb 2020
I surprised my husband for his birthday with Cozymeal. I chose the Exploring Regional French Fare menu with Chef Zach. Chef Zach was super friendly and personable. He was very knowledgeable and made the experience so incredible. My husband and I learned how to poach an egg, make a vinaigrette from scratch, flambé a sauce, make crepes, and so much more. We highly recommend Cozymeal and Chef Zach for a cooking experience you will never forget.
08 Feb 2020
My husband and I had such a wonderful time with Chef Zach! He is a wealth of knowledge, talented, funny, and went out of his way to make it a special evening for everyone. We can’t wait to book our next class!
01 Feb 2020
We loved this class! Chef Zach is awesome! The food was delicious, and the instruction was a perfect balance of hands-on and "show and tell." I'd recommend this class and chef, without reservation!

Chef Zach is an excellent cook and the session with him was well worth it. My wife and learned new things, enjoyed a great meal, and had an overall great experience.
28 Dec 2019
Absolutely wonderful experience! The mood was set. The prep was fun. The food delicious. Zach was a super host. So glad I looked for something different to do. We’ve done some other cooking school events but this was much better. Smaller group. Chances to ask questions.
27 Oct 2019
Chef Zach exceeded all expectations. From the moment we entered his cozy home, the French theme of the night became apparent. Chef Zach is a welcoming host, knowledgeable chef, and an even better instructor. We learned various tips that left us feeling inspired to cook more. From how to get fallen egg shell pieces, to how to cook a pizza in the oven so the flavors of all ingredients melt seamlessly, Chef Zach has tips and tricks for everyone and everything. He was a great conversationalist, and ensured we all (4 of us) got to partake in the cooking steps. He truly knows his way about cooking guaranteed tasty meals. It was an outstanding experience. Highly recommend Chef Zach, you will leave feeling like a mini pro chef. Looking forward to the next class!
07 Oct 2019
I had the opportunity to have a cooking experience with Chef Zach. It was wonderful. Not only is he an expert in the kitchen but also very open to answering elementary questions about cooking in general. He made the experience fun and the meal was excellent. I would not hesitate to have another cooking lesson with this chef.
26 Aug 2019
Zach is very entertaining and an expert chef. He can turn a 500 degree oven into an experience you won't forget! Check him out. You will be glad that you did!
18 Aug 2019
What a great experience! Chef Zach provided a wonderful mix of facts and history of Brazilian cooking, hands-on instruction and a fabulous meal. Super adept at pacing and guidance. An easy laid-back atmosphere with an exceptional meal at the end! I’d recommend this for anyone interested in a fun date night with low pressure. No worry if you don’t have much experience cooking...Chef Zach will have you feeling like a pro in no time! Highly recommend!
08 Aug 2019
We had a great time with Zach! Ten minutes into our event, it felt like we'd known him for a long time. He's a natural instructor and has a wealth of skill and experience to share. I would highly recommend working with him for a fun evening especially for those just getting started!
26 Jul 2019
Chef Zach was great! Super knowledgeable and personable-- no question was too novice for him and he really took the time to bring us along on the culinary ride. Plus, the food was awesome!
21 Jul 2019
This being our first time doing an experience like this on the Cozymeal platform, the information provided was complete and helpful. My wife and I had planned this experience to celebrate our 10th marriage anniversary. Instead of going to a restaurant, we decided to do something different. Since we consider Food to be quite central to what we enjoy, my wife found and discovered this cooking class on Cozy Meal. Since we are vegetarians, it took us some time but we finally found this Brazilian cuisine cooking class on Cozymeal with a vegetable and fish-based menu! Now about the host: We found the whole experience amazing. Zach was an extremely personable and friendly host who not only provided a great gastronomic experience but also engaged us with his travel and cooking stories. We learned a few new kitchen skills on the side. We loved the interactive cooking aspect of the experience, with Zach showing us the way! 2 hours passed in a hurry, and at the end of it, we enjoyed a tremendous five course meal! An amazing experience that we'll remember in years to come!
17 Jul 2019
Amazing. My last and I had a blast. I am def planning another date night with that.
09 Jun 2019
Chef Zach was very knowledgeable, but also patient and encouraging. We felt like we were involved in the process of cooking our meal, but he was there to ensure that it came out tasting delicious (which it may not have if we were left to our own devices!). The steak au poivre we made was tastier than most of the recent steaks I've ordered at restaurants!
06 Jun 2019
Chef Zach is amazing! Not only is he extremely technically skilled, he also is an incredibly gracious host with a lovely apartment. His warmth puts even the complete neophyte chef at ease. Would absolutely recommend and hope to cook with him again myself.

What a wonderful evening of experience, after 50 years of cooking I learned helpful hints of cooking and blending of taste. Chef Zach made it fun and educational at the same time. A wonderful evening and great teacher!!! The food was wonderful too!
14 Apr 2019
Zach not only gave me my first taste of Brazilian cuisine (delicious!) but also the hands on, muscle-memory-learning and desire to try making it myself in the future. Zach's home and kitchen is super clean and inviting and the table was set perfectly. It's relaxing to be with close friends, enjoying wine we brought, while Zach kept track of timing and sequence, passed on tips and timesavers, and guided us to produce a stress-free gourmet dinner. Zach made possible a special intimate dinner with close friends-- without having to grocery shop, prepare, clean house, set the table, or clean-up afterward---priceless !!
25 Feb 2019
Chef Zach prepares - and teaches you to prepare - food that he knows and loves. His French-inspired cuisine comes with a love for his own French heritage, and his time spent in Brazil shows in his proficiency there as well. He's quick with an anecdote that tells the story behind why he loves the menu items he chose, and his deep knowledge of technique means you'll learn something new while he demos even the simplest cooking method - like adding salt to water for pasta. Who knew we weren't using enough of it?
