Working with Chef Chris was a wonderful experience! His teaching skills and verbal instructions were clear and easy to follow. He made us feel comfortable when asking questions or asking for a repeat demonstration. Chef Chris explained his choice of kitchen tools and appliances and it’s use in our food prep. All foods used in our meal were pre-packaged, labeled and ready to use. Lastly, Chef Chris’ kitchen and working space was clean, uncluttered and well-organized. We’ve taken many food classes over the years and he is exceptional! We look forward to our next class with Chef Chris when we return to Las Vegas.

We absolutely loved Chef Chris! He was extremely flexible with us since our flight came in late. He was really fun to talk to and my husband and I left there feeling like we got our money’s worth.

Chef Chris' private cooking class was simply a fantastic experience. His instructional style is exceptional. We can't believe we contributed to such a flavorful meal preparation. Highly recommended class.
17 Nov 2022
Chef Chris was very friendly, and his private class was laid back and enjoyable. Even though my wife is a great cook, she learned a lot from him, and he even went "off-menu" and made an extra item on the side to show her how it is done. The food was delicious, and he even packed up all the leftovers for us to take with us, so we had an extra meal the following day! We had a great time. Thanks!

My 13 y/o daughter and I met with Chris this week for a cooking lesson for a Mexican menu of shrimp ceviche, chicken enchiladas, churros and hibiscus tea. We had a fantastic time and learned so much. Chris is a patient and efficient teacher, explained procedures, background of the foods and techniques, adjusted the ingredients based on our preferences, and was an all-around great host. We will absolutely do a Cozymeal class again.
16 May 2019
Chef Christian is a true culinary professional. It's obvious that cooking is his passion and his creativity shows in his fresh, flavorful combinations. I especially enjoyed watching him put the final touches on the chicken flautas and enchiladas in the manner that all trained chefs do - with intent and gracefulness whether it be a final seasoning, a flour toss, or a squeeze bottle drizzle. The shrimp ceviche, in particular, was as colorful and vibrant as it was delicious and the guava pastalito - fresh out of the oven with it's golden flaky crust - simply divine.

Chef Chris is very knowledgeable, he’s very thorough with his explanations and you can tell he is very passionate about his craft.
After beginning his culinary career as a dishwasher, Chef Chris went on to earn an associate’s degree in culinary arts, and a bachelor’s degree in food service management. After finishing culinary school, Chef Chris worked under a James Beard-nominated chef at his flagship restaurant in an up-and-coming neighborhood in Miami. During that time, Chef Chris further honed his skills and emerged as a leader in the kitchen.
