The whole experience was incredible! From the moment we walked into his home, he made us feel welcome and as if we were old friends. We did the Thai class resulting in the best Thai food that I've found in the DC area. Chef Charles a top-notch educator, conversationalist, and chef, and I highly recommend him to anyone interested in an experience like this. I'll definitely be coming back for his other courses.

Chef Charles was very welcoming and taught us a lot about cooking in a very interactive experience. His recipe was delicious, and he walked us through each step of the process, letting us jump in as much or as little as we wanted. This was our first class, and we didn’t know what to expect; however, we had a great time and would highly recommend. Also, you make a good portion of food, so remember to pace yourself!

Going into this experience I had no idea what to expect. I’ve never used cozy meal before. I have to say this is one of the best dining experiences I’ve had and I’ve lived around the DC area for 20 years. Chef Charles home is beautifully finished and very cozy and welcoming. The chef himself is intelligent, entertaining and charming. He instantly made everybody feel welcome in his home. He prepared spring rolls, pad Thai and mango sticky rice. There was abundant opportunity to jump into the cooking process at any point. He took his time and thoroughly explained what he was doing at each step and allowed diners to taste how the flavors changed as he added ingredients. There were people of various experience levels at the dinner and all thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely book again with chef Charles. I should also mention that the food was plentiful. I’m a very big guy with a large appetite and I was unable to finish my meal! So you will not leave hungry!
