Last weekend in Memphis we had a great CozyMeal experience. We love to cook and it was an awesome event with @ChefRachel901 learning how to cook Turkey Lasagna w/Zucchini Pasta. Everything was delicious, we learned cooking tips, listened to music and enjoyed every minute. We would definitely recommend Chef Rachel and the CozyMeal experience!

Rachel was a delight to work with. The home is in a wonderful neighborhood minutes from downtown Memphis and just a stones throw from the river. I'll start with the food: she prepared ahead of time a panna cotta and play on zuppa toscana. The soup was absolutely mind-blowing, there was such a deep flavor profile and the pop of spice definitely jazzed it up. I could immediately tell Rachel's style from the bold southern flavors accompanying this traditional Italian fare. The panna cotta was lovely, and the sweet aroma of citrus filled the cup. Chef Rachel also demonstrated a shrimp ceviche and chicken/mushroom dish with braised kale. She showed technical skills while preparing the ceviche, which resulted in a wonderful palate pleaser both for the taste buds and eyes. The bright herbs she used gave a wonderful contrast to the shrimp. Lastly, the mushroom sauce was very creamy, chicken cooked perfectly, and the kale...was amazing.
