Chef Ricky not only knows how to craft an exceptional Omakase style meal, but he does a great job of explaining the history of Sushi in Japan, and the changes that America has brought to Japanese cuisine. We not only made an awesome meal, but left with a better understanding of the history behind Sushi as well. His home is beautiful, and it truly was a fantastic experience for us. We have done CozyMeals in the past and Chef Ricky ranks among the top chefs we have had the pleasure to learn from. 10/10!

16 Aug 2022
Booked my wife and I for her birthday. We could not have been happier and chef Ricky was great.

So much fun and we will be back for his other classes!
05 Aug 2022
This was our first time using Cozymeal and we were a bit hesitant to go to someone’s home for a cooking class. After we walked in the front door we knew we made a great decision! Chef Rickey was fantastic and we had an incredible experience. The food was top notch quality and the service and knowledge could not be any better. We are all planning to do this event again because it was so much fun and extremely informative. I cannot recommend Chef Rickey enough. The price was extremely low considering the types of food we had and the service we received. Chef Rickey also has a beautiful home that is perfect for this event. The instruction is perfect for beginners to professionals in the kitchen and all of our requests far exceeded our expectations.
24 Jul 2022
This was our second time doing this because we enjoyed it so much! Chef Ricky is always incredible and we are life long fans!! There is so much food and you learn so much. Can't wait to do more classes!

We had a fantastic time in Chef Ricky’s Omakase class. Chef Ricky is extremely knowledgeable, kind and an excellent teacher. The entire menu he prepared was so good that we had a hard time deciding what our favorite dish was! Not only was the hands on experience really fun, we also really enjoyed learning some history about Japanese cooking and cuisine. We highly recommend taking one of his classes. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience Chef Ricky!
23 Jun 2022
Cheif Ricky was fantastic!!! Very helpful and great teacher. We will be scheduling another class with him.
20 Jun 2022
I surprised my boyfriend with this class and we had the best time! Chef Ricky organized this perfectly and we felt very prepared, as this was our first time doing a class. We ate during and still had so much sushi to take home. If you’re looking for a great date idea, this is it! Thank you Chef Ricky!
18 Jun 2022
Chef Ricky's Omokase class was our second with him (after the sous vide course). He is friendly, knowledgeable, and a great teacher. These classes are a fun date night and chance to eat new foods, made even better with the hands-on experience!
17 Jun 2022
AMAZING! From start to finish. Cozymeal was able to meet our specific request. Chef Ricky not only taught us how to prepare an excellent meal but also provided us with a wealth of knowledge on the history of food. Thank you Chef Ricky and we look forward to having you back.
05 Jun 2022
Chef Ricky’s sushi class was AMAZING!! We were impressed as soon as we walked into his beautiful home. Each station in the kitchen was prepped perfectly for us with everything we could need including all ingredients and tools. It was such a calm and relaxing environment which made for the perfect weekend date activity. Chef Ricky was so kind, engaging and knowledgeable and walked us through every step of the sushi process. We really feel like we learned a ton!! And at the end we got to take home our sushi creations and even the mats. Everything was so fresh and tasty - we couldn’t have had a better experience, right down to his dog saying hello and his sweet wife taking our photo! Thank you Chef Ricky!!
04 Jun 2022
Could not have asked for a better experience sushi making with Chef Ricky! We learned so much and enjoyed all his stories and tidbits about cooking. We will be back for another one of his classes soon. Thanks, Chef!
02 Jun 2022
This class was so much fun and Chef Ricky is the best! It is in the chef’s house, so don’t be alarmed when the maps takes you to a neighborhood. I got this for my boyfriend for a birthday gift and he loved it. There were 6 people in the class, he has a beautiful home with so much space. The spots are nicely setup with everything you need. He teaches you to make sushi from scratch and helps you every step of the way. He is very detailed and will answer any questions you have as well as make sure you are doing everything correctly so no one gets frustrated. You can bring your own drinks, he provides wine glasses and water. The price is absolutely worth it, you make so many rolls of sushi that you eat while you cook and also get to take so much home with you, you will have sushi for days!
16 May 2022
We had a great time with Chef Ricky. Can't wait to book our next adventure!
16 May 2022
This was our Second cooking class with chef Ricky and we loved it. He meticulously has everything ready/prepped at your own cooking station so the class goes smoothly. It was a completely different experience then the sushi class but equally as enjoyable. Would definitely do another class.
15 May 2022
This was an incredible experience! From the moment we entered his home Chef Ricky made us feel like family. His instruction and guidance provided the perfect balance of information, historical context, and tips for taking the dishes to the next level at home. He was patient, attentive and thee food was outstanding. The flavor was so deep that it was hard to believe we cooked it. Chef Ricky is da bomb!
09 May 2022
Great class, food was excellent and he made you feel like his kitchen was yours. I would take a class again
08 May 2022

Chef Ricky is top class in his art, professionalism, hosting, and personality. Chef Ricky made this experience one of a kind and we would recommend his Omakase class to anyone. I would assume all of his classes are of similar nature which means I would recommend Chef Ricky to anyone. His expertise and knowledge is unbelievable. We will definitely be taking another class with Chef Ricky.
06 Mar 2022
Chef Ricky was absolutely wonderful! His knowledge and expertise regarding preparation and creation of tasteful & unique sushi and sashimi rolls were enlightening, the rolls we created were even more so delicious. This is a greater starting point for beginners to the sushi/sashimi making process, and a fun date night/gift for your sushi loving partner or friends!
27 Feb 2022
We had the most amazing experience with Chef Ricky. Fortune for us, the other couples in our group could not make it so we had a personal class. The Chef was patient, answered all our (many) questions and was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. The food was delicious and we had an exciting variety of flavors and proteins. We will be talking about this for years to come.
26 Feb 2022
Chef Ricky was excellent. The class exceeded our expectations and took us out of our comfort zones. We loved things that we would have never ordered out at a restaurant. Chef Ricky goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. We enjoyed all of the knowledge/history that Chef Rickey had to share. We can’t wait to do another class.
26 Feb 2022
An amazing experience, the Chef really outdid himself with the menu! He has such a passion for his craft and a talent for teaching. I love sushi and even had so many things I've never had before. The details, the quality, the inviting kitchen and all the preparation for our class really put a bow on it. You will not find a better way to spend your time! A++++++
23 Feb 2022
Chef Ricky was amazing! The sushi rolls were amazing and the smoked soy sauce was so delicious. We learned so much about the history of sushi and about all of the various ingredients.

14 Feb 2022
Chef Ricky was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We appreciated that he sourced some extremely quality and delicious ingredients. And has a lot of fun during the class
14 Feb 2022
My fiancé and I celebrated Valentine's Day this year by taking Chef Ricky’s Sushi Omakase class. The class was amazing! It was very hands-on and we learned about the history of sushi and Japan and how to make delicious food! The kitchen was beautiful and each person had their own setup with ingredients and tools. We brought sake with us to enjoy during the class. The class lasted about 2.5 hours and when we finished, we were FULL. I highly recommend taking this class. Thank you Chef!
07 Feb 2022
Chef Ricky offered an amazing experience with this sushi class. We learned not only how to make sushi but also the history. I will definitely recommend the class to family and friends.
30 Jan 2022
Chef Ricky’s sushi class was so much fun! The atmosphere and energy makes you feel very welcomed. Chef Ricky is very knowledgeable and encourages you to add your own personality to the food you make. We learned so much and being able to have a hands on approach gave us the confidence to cook without judgement. I would definitely recommend this class for anyone who wants to know the interesting history and background of sushi while also making a delicious meal.
25 Jan 2022
My client Carolyn wrote this as this was for her family of four. We had an amazing sushi class with Chef Ricky. HIGHLY recommend him and his brilliant mind. Not only does he supervise and show you how to make sushi, but he educates you on the history, adding in fun anecdotes and important tips through his wealth of experience in the restaurant field, This is not a lecture class —- it is hands on fun. Chef Ricky makes the sushi along with you —- AND you get to eat everything you assemble, with plenty to take home for tomorrow. This mom truly appreciated his detailed attention to clean surfaces and safe preparation. What a great way to spend a family evening —- even my college-aged kids loved it. Shhhhh —- don’t tell anyone —-but I’m buying my husband Chef Ricky’s Sous vide class for a Valentines Day gift!
23 Jan 2022
My girlfriend and I took Chef Ricky’s classic sushi roll Class and absolutely loved it! We learned a lot about where sushi originated and Chef Ricky took us step by step on how to make sushi. Chef Ricky made the class extremely fun, informative, and made everyone feel welcome and comfortable, and was patient and entertaining. I’d highly recommend Chef Ricky’s class to everyone! If you’re ever interested in taking a course I recommend Chef Ricky. Thank you for an amazing class and we look forward to taking more!
23 Jan 2022

22 Dec 2021
Gray experience and knowledgeable chef.
19 Dec 2021
I was not familiar with Sous VIde cooking. Chef Ricky made it all so easy! We made crème brûlée first. This took the longest time to cook in the water. Next we made the whole red snapper. THe amazing thing is that the snapper only took 45 minutes to cook in the Sous Vide machine. The whole experience was over the top! We made fresh cilantro rice to go with the snapper. This was definitely 5+ stars! Highly recommend Chef Ricky!
18 Dec 2021
Chef Ricky was knowledgeable and friendly. He talked about the history of techniques and ingredients. He also told stories about his own career. Absolutely recommend!
17 Dec 2021
It was a great experience! We took the sushi class and it was amazing! Chef Ricky is very knowledgeable and not only did we learn how to make sushi, but also the history, different kinds, and all about tuna. We had plenty of sushi to take home and I feel quite prepared to do it at alone at home!
15 Dec 2021
We had so much fun with Chef Ricky that I booked another sushi lesson with a group of clients. We had a group of six. All of my clients had the BEST time!!! After the first roll, everybody felt much more at ease. Chef Ricky plays music that is geared towards sushi (Rolling in the Deep). We learned about the history, ingredients and proper food safety guidelines for preparing sushi. Chef Ricky answered all questions including non sushi questions. His kitchen is perfect for teaching an intimate sushi class. Highly recommend that you book quickly as the spots fill up quick!!! 5 Stars!!!!!!!!
15 Dec 2021
Chef Ricky is amazing! All participants had their own sushi work station. Chef Ricky explained all the ingredients and put everyone at ease. We all made delicious sushi by the end of the class. His music selection went great with the class. I highly recommend this class. 5 Stars
12 Dec 2021
Chef Ricky by far made a very memorable and luxurious experience.. Very knowledgeable and gives lots of great hands on tactics of making our first but not the last do it yourself sushi rolls - five stars all the way!!!!!

27 Nov 2021
Chef Ricky did a great job! We had a blast & made so much sushi! Everything was fresh & delicious.
14 Nov 2021
My 15 year old son and I had such a wonderful experience! Ricky was wonderful and patient, fun, knowledgeable.. and a very warm, welcoming environment! We will be back and recommend this class to all friends in the Tampa area! Thanks Ricky!!
31 Oct 2021
The experience was great! Chef Ricky is a retired professional chef. Without knowing his background you would guess that he is serious about cooking when you walk into his professional kitchen. For each participant, he has a complete work station set up. He works opposite of you so that you see each step and techniques. He also gives history and interesting facts along the way. Definitely worth the money. What a wonderful experience!
23 Oct 2021
Booked for my daughter’s birthday. Chef Ricky was welcoming, well prepared, knowledgeable and fun. We had a great time and highly recommend.
03 Oct 2021
Chef Ricky was absolutely amazing. I took my husband for his bday as a surprise and he made the experience so much fun. It was a memorable time. He’s so professional, organized, totally explained and taught the class so much. Thank you and we will be back soon ?
03 Oct 2021
Chef Ricky was knowledgeable, entertaining, and passionate about his craft. Such a fun and unique dining experience! Definitely worth the cost, considering how many left overs we had and how long we were there! Do yourself a favor and book with chef Ricky for a memorable afternoon you wont soon forget!
11 Sep 2021
Absolutely the best Chef and experience ever! We went in a group of 6 to celebrate a friends birthday and had such a fun/relaxing experience. Chef Ricky was so knowledgeable, helpful and easy to get along with. (His kitchen is sick!!). Definitely worth the money and time!!!
11 Sep 2021
Me and my bf had a great time lots of fun and learning 10/10
24 Jul 2021
Amazing class, great atmosphere very knowledgeable, and not to mention the adorable dogs! Highly recommended and will definitely be going back for the other classes Chef offers!
11 Jul 2021
We really enjoyed our class with Chef Ricky! He is an expert chef and taught this class in a wonderful and relaxed environment in his home. Our sous vide class was very informative and fun! We totally recommend any of his classes!! Scott and Kay
05 Jul 2021
Wow, where do I even start. I arranged this for my husband and our best friends to do this class together for his birthday. It was the highlight of his weekend! We all agreed that Chef Ricky is a genius. He knows so much about the culture and history behind sushi (do you know what the word “sushi” even means? You’ll find out!) as well as the intricate process and exact ingredients (aka the right ones!) that go into the process of actually creating the sushi rolls. DEFINITELY come hungry! You make an incredible amount of delicious food. You get to take home what you don’t eat (which for me was a lot) along with your sushi mat! I’ve already bought the recommended ingredients so I can make sushi at home! This review is falling short on describing just how good the experience was. I would say it was worth AT LEAST $150 per person. It was really fun, delicious, informative, and Chef Rickie makes the experience enjoyable :) I fully recommend this class to any one who is interested in learning to make sushi!
04 Jul 2021
Chef Ricky made this class so much fun. Not only was he a great entertainer and host, he is an amazing chef and teacher. He was accommodating to all my wife’s food allergies. It felt like a safe space even for a rookie in the kitchen like I am. 10 out 10 would do again and will recommend to all our friends.
29 Jun 2021
This was an amazing experience and I look forward to doing this again. The atmosphere of a home definitely makes the experience more "cozy" and inviting! Looking forward to adding my 10 year old to the mix!
22 Jun 2021
Chef Ricky was nothing short of Amazing! If I could give this class 6 stars, I would. My wife and I had an amazing experience making sushi for the first time. Chef Ricky was very informative and really kept the class entertaining from beginning to end. If this is your first cooking class, you definitely will not be disappointed. Thanks again Chef Ricky for putting on a wonderful experience and being a top-notch host.!
14 Jun 2021
Wow! What a great experience. I and my wife took the class with Ricky and we both had some pre conceived notions about sushi, I mean a real misunderstanding about the food but Ricky took his time and walked us through the class step by step and made it very easy to grasp the concept of sushi making. I would take this class over, as a matter of fact I will be signing up for another class with Ricky and would really recommend anyone to take this class. We walked away with a much broader understanding about sushi and the process of how it’s made.
02 Jun 2021
This was our first cooking class and it was phenomenal. Chef Ricky was very personable and funny, and interacted with each student. We had a variety of fresh and authentic ingredients, and the smoked soy sauce was the best. We left with sooooo much sushi.

This was such an AMAZING experience. My wife has been looking to do this for a while and hasn't had much luck finding a sushi class. I did this as a birthday surprise and it was the most incredible time! Chef Ricky is so organized and love that this class is all hands on. Not only does he do an amazing job teaching, but he makes it fun! He's energetic and keeps the class up beat. We will def be back to learn more from Chef Ricky.

Chef Ricky was amazing!! I cannot recommend this class enough. Chef Ricky and his wife are so inviting and their house is beautiful. They make you feel right at home immediately. Chef Ricky is a great teacher and has some many jokes along the way. We made soooo many rolls, I was blown away that I was able to make so much food in only 2.5 hours. The class is the perfect amount time, amount of laughs and learning. The best part is how much you get to eat during class and bring home! I can't wait to take another class from Chef Ricky!

We’ve attended a couple of Ricky’s classes, and he genuinely cares about teaching and the needs of his students. He can answer whatever questions you need to know about Asian cuisine, and if there is time, he can show or discuss a variation on a recipe. Truly wonderful! He will change the way you cook and eat.

Chef Ricky (his wife, and two pups) made the evening unforgettable! Not only did he satisfy my personal need to know "Why?" for everything, but he connected with everyone in our class. For his set up, each station was the image of perfection. He thought of everything! Right down to two mini trash cans, color coded for trash or recycling and togo boxes! Witty, hands on, doesn't rush/push, allows for creativity when making your own rolls, delicious personal recipes. I would change nothing from this experience!

THIS REVIEW IS LONGGGGG OVERDUE!!!! (Which I sincerely apologize for Chef) The experience with Chef Ricky was one that I can't even put into words. The professionalism and expertise which Chef Ricky possesses was one of a kind. My boyfriend and I felt so welcomed and comfortable. Although this was such a relatively new meal for the both of us, we felt like legit professionals!!! Chef Ricky was very detailed and thorough with the step by step directions. He helped me not feel as nervous as I initially was. Very welcoming spirit, and the kitchen was beautifuulllllllll. My boyfriend and I left extremely happy with the experience and highly recommend for any occasion. I would definitely book again in the future.

I surprised my husband with this sushi class for his birthday and it was more than I could have ever imagined. Chef Ricky was so welcoming, polite, and easy going. We learned more than expected about the history and craft of sushi making and had a wonderful time creating some of the most delicious rolls we’ve ever eaten. We had an incredible time and absolutely loved Chef Ricky’s humor and musical taste. We can’t stop talking about the class and have recommended it to everyone we know.

Chef Ricky is a real inspiration to young chefs and a great mentor. My 15-year-old and I both had the best time at his sushi class, and we're going back to take another class with Chef. His knowledge is unbeatable, and he has great standards of quality and a smart way of conveying these. So, being around him even for a short time really helps you become better in the kitchen!

Chef Ricky not only had a superb set up that was well thought out, organized, clean and meticulously planned but his class, expertise and sense of humor were the icing on the cake. Very highly recommended sushi making class that was perfect for a couples event. You can't go wrong by booking this experience!

Chef Ricky's Classic Sushi Rolls from Scratch class takes you on an EXPERIENCE!!! Chef Ricky is so nice, patient and an extraordinary teacher.

I was absolutely blown away that I was able to make beautiful sushi rolls :) DO NOT HESITATE. SIGN UP NOW for his class because it fills up fast. This is an experience that you all deserve and Chef Ricky will not disappoint. Thank you Chef and your wife for the enjoyable experience !!!!!!!!

His level of expertise and guidance is impeccable and we are begging to do another class as soon as possible! Not to mention is wife is ever so welcoming and hospitable. Highly highly highly recommend!!

I took Chef Ricky's introduction to sushi cooking class with my girlfriend for our 1 year anniversary. He was great and took is time to teach each participant (6 of us) how to make sushi from scratch. I don't cook nor have a lot of experience and by the end of the class felt accomplished. Highly recommend the class. Thanks!

Chef Ricky was such a wonderful teacher ! We had so much fun leaning how to make sushi and he made the class easy to understand and allowed us to take pictures of all the products so we can replicate the experience at home. I cannot thank him enough for such a lovely cooking class !
