Embark on a dumpling-making journey and discover dumplings come in all shapes, sizes, and flavors.
In this hands-on class with Chef Chris, you will journey from the Caribbean all the way to Asia and back again as you learn how to make four different dumplings that are respected and known around the world.
You will begin with wonderfully flakey empanadas bursting at the seams with juicy beef and freshly made sofrito. Then, you will head to Japan and discover vegetable gyoza chockfull of seasonal mushrooms as well as the beauty of the classically fluffy and chewy Chinese pork bao bun before concluding with Cuban-inspired guava pastelitos.
Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
Had a great experience with Chef Chris. He's patient, informative, and is awesome at what he does. He'll show you exactly what you need to do to make great food. My husband and I took the dumpling class and they turned out delicious.

My wife and I learned how to cook dumplings with Chef Chris. He was very informative and patient when we didn't always get it right away. All of the food was delicious. It was a super fun experience that we would definitely do again!

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.

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.

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.
