Cooking with Chef Rose was an amazing experience! She was very knowledgeable and personable. As our first time doing a cooking class, we felt comfortable and learned a lot of skills that we can bring back to our own kitchen. She is a great chef and we would definitely recommend this class!

Our cooking from scratch gnocchi class was amazing! Chef Rose was very knowledgeable and let us really take control of the what we’re were cooking. We had great conversation, learned a ton, and really got to know her. Her home was breathtaking too!

Everything about this experience was top-notch. From her beautiful home to the high-quality ingredients we used, no expense was spared. Chef Rose's energy instantly puts you at ease and makes those new to the kitchen feel comfortable trying these new recipes and techniques. She has an amazing culinary background and to learn from her is a real treat. We will absolutely be doing this again. If I could change one thing it would be that her home was a B&B so that we could stay for breakfast!

Chef Rose is one in a million! The class was very intimate which made it more comfortable and relaxing. The minute you walk in Rose's house, you feel welcomed. She is knowledgeable in cooking and baking-from tricks to use in the kitchen, to fun-facts, to learning how to properly handle a chopping knife. Her recipes were delicious. We had time to sit and enjoy our meal and had plenty to take home. You won't go home disappointed.

Enjoyed our class with Chef Rose to the fullest. She is hospitable, knowledgeable, and welcoming. We learned new tips and tricks, but more than anything enjoyed conversation with her and her family and left feeling like we had just spent the evening with good friends!

Detailed, personable, and talented! Going into Chef Rose's "The Joy of Pizza Making," my friend and I were beyond nervous. I do not cook because I can't take the heat; however, Chef Rose made it simple and walked us through every step. She is incredibly knowledgeable, from giving us some scientific facts (e.g. how yeast works, etc) to how to properly hold and use a knife. She is also a wonderful teacher. I definitely learned a few things. In a time of COVID, she made it clear when we walked in that her home is completely clean and that she and her family takes all the necessary precautions when going out. Attendees were at least 6' apart and Chef Rose totally respected our decision to keep our masks on when we weren't eating. I would absolutely take another class from Chef Rose in a heartbeat. She's super friendly, a master of her craft, and can make a novice feel comfortable and confident in the kitchen. I highly recommend booking at least one of Chef Rose's classes. She can't disappoint.

I have nothing but amazing things go say about Chef Rose! She is pure delight!! Both her and her husband were incredibly hospitable, her kitchen was gorgeous, and the food was mouth-watering. What made the experience infinitely better was the time she took to explain every step. Everything from knife skills to all her secret tricks was included in the class! I know I will retain so much knowledge from only a few hours with her. I cannot wait to go back!!

Rose is charming and has this way of bringing magic into the kitchen. Nerves? Forget them. Hesitations? Forgotten. She made me feel welcome from the very start. As is I were just apart of her family. Her professionalism is stunning. Her recipes are golden. It felt good to be taught by someone so passionate despite how many years she has cooked. That passion created a lovely meal that I can’t believe I got to help create. The chicken is incredible and she even got me, one who doesn’t like cherries, to be a fan of her cherry pie. I learned lots of tips and tricks I’ll take with me forever. I will definitely come back.

Chef Rose is a wonderful chef who really down to earth with an amazing home. She has her own cute garden for some of the ingredients, which for my made it that much more special. I am not a person to just talk to a stranger, but she really made us feel comfortable. She really took the time to walk us through each stuff. And the food was amazing. We took most of it home. Enjoyed every second.
01 Feb 2020
We had a great night with Chef Rose. We learned a lot of new techniques in a comfortable setting, and best of all, finished the night we 3 wonderful gnocchi dishes! Highly recommend.

My husband and I signed up for the cooking class with Chef Rose. Our experience was nothing short of amazing. I do love to cook, and I learned some new recipes that I can now reproduce. After we had cooked our 3 course meal we sat down to enjoy our creations. What a pleasant experience with Chef Rose!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Chef Rose and our experience! She was so welcoming, down to earth, and we felt so comfortable the entire time we were there. As for the pizza making, Chef Rose was extremely knowledgeable and taught us so much throughout the entire process (even simple cooking tips unrelated to pizza). We made three different pizzas and each one was phenomenal. This was our first time attending a cooking class, and she truly went above and beyond to make it a memorable experience. If you’re looking for a fun date night, family night, or even a girls night, Chef Rose is your lady!

My boyfriend Patrick & I had a wonderful time with Chef Rose! We were running late, but Chef Rose was so gracious to help us catch up right when we got there. I was so impressed with how she never assumed our level - she took her time explaining the most basic skills which made the class much less intimidating and much more enjoyable. My only regret is that I did not bring a notebook to write down all of the tips & advice Rose had to offer. She is a joyful person full of entertaining stories. In just a few hours we felt like close friends. I am now spoiled for all other cooking classes, and I cannot recommend her class highly enough!
15 Feb 2019
We loved EVERYTHING about this class! Chef Rose was more than amazing! She welcomes us into her beautiful home and her kitchen was perfect!! The food was delicious to say the least!
14 Feb 2019

Chef Rose hosted my husband and I along with another couple for a paella dinner and it was amazing. She is friendly and knowledgeable and explained the cooking process in a way that was easy to understand. She provided many tips and tricks in the kitchen as well. It was a fantastic and fun evening! Lots of laughs were had. I highly recommend!!!

Chef Rose is absolutely amazing. We couldn't speak highly enough of her and our experience learning to cook from her. Chef Rose was incredibly welcoming to us and her kitchen is a perfect setting for a class. We cooked some truly amazing food, but what made the experience stand out as a class was that it wasn't just about learning recipes - Chef Rose was careful to work with us and show us techniques that we can use in our daily cooking. An A+ experience!

Cooking with Chef Rose is an absolute delight! Her teaching style blends professionalism with personality in a way that makes learning the cooking process such a treat. Her gorgeous and spacious home provides a welcoming and warm environment that perfectly complements her traditional approach to cooking. If you are a lover of all things wine, Chef Rose’s in-home wine cellar will leave you in awe! Whether you are looking for a neat date night idea, or looking to sharpen your knife skills, I highly recommend signing up to take a class with Chef Rose.
