John was great. I have done similiar type experiences locally, and pre-pandemic so wasn't sure what to expect in this setting. John's home setup provided a level of kitchen intimacy to see styles and techniques which I can't wait to use. Homemade caesar dressing was great and super easy so can't wait to see if my wife will give it a try herself. Also, the way he cooked the pork carnitas with the orange juice was a new technique for me as it is one of my favorite taco proteins.
Nice to meet you John and thoroughly enjoyed.

Chef John helped me improve my healthy habits on food with lots of tips on detox and culinary secrets I would have never thought possible in just one lesson with him. His expertise was much beyond what I first expected and would like to come again for a second one soon. Thanks for your devotion to this wonderful art.

Rave reviews for John! John cooked a delicious meal for my husband and I to celebrate my husband's birthday and all was perfection. He spoke to me several times before the event to ensure all my special requests would be met and happily agreed to make modifications to the on-line menu. He arrived early with all the cooking tools and food needed and was courteous and professional throughout. Every course was delicious--beginning with a tomato-based pasta fagioli soup that had just the right kick, a Caeser salad with fresh parmesan and home-made croutons, a perfectly prepared steak putanesca, parmesan potatoes and broccoli and ending with bananas foster. We would rate the food a 10 out of 10 and would definitely book with Cozymeal again.

I have had the pleasure and honor of dining on Chef John’s cuisine for many years. I have also ordered his food to dine on at home. Chef John’s creations are both innovative and delicious. If there was a 10 star rating, he would be 10+. I love everything he makes from soup to salad to entrees. His vegan tuna and egg salad are over the top! His soups are amazing. I can’t express how wonderful his food is!

I met John in the early 90’s when he was a restaurant manager in downtown Miami. John served amazing lunches cafeteria style. There was always a line at the door, where he often greeted the crowd with his warm personality. He cooked several daily specials that always sold out, but my favorite was the hand carved sandwiches. I asked him if I could buy several pounds of his delicious potato salad (it was better than homemade) to take to a party, he quickly obliged and he soon was cooking for a birthday dinner party at my house.
John prepared fajitas with all of the traditional sides. Beans, nachos, quesadillas, all perfectly spiced. My cousin enjoyed the meal so much that she hired John on the spot to cook for her New Years Eve party in 1993 and he has continued through 2019! The New Years menu changes annually. Each year tops the previous year with a buffet of creative dishes, but a standout lamb chop appetizer remains a constant. Shrimp (cocktail or coconut), broiled salmon, beef tenderloin, potato pancakes, poke bowls, beef kabobs, there are just too many fabulous items to remember. Always served beautifully and well prepared.
John and his staff always provide excellent service and high quality, delicious food with loads of creativity. 5 stars all the way. I can’t wait to see his menu this year, in addition to the lamb chops!
Chef John's passion for crafting incredible fare began at an early age. Since then, he has amassed decades worth of experience working in a variety of culinary establishments, even working alongside several top names in the food industry, including Bobby Flay, Emeril Lagasse and Julia Child. Chef John looks forward to sharing the treasure trove of cooking tips and tricks he has learned throughout the years with you!
