What a great experience! Chef Susie was a true expert and provided not only helpful kitchen tips but nutritional ones as well! Her home is located in the center of Austin and is a beautiful space to explore your culinary talents (and eat them after)! Susie and her space were welcoming and warm, highly recommend!

Chef Susie was an incredible teacher and host! She took the time to not only show us how to create the recipes, but also educate us on the why behind the reaction we may see. 10/10 would recommend and I’m definitely signing up for her Pad Thai class!

Chef Susie was an incredible teacher! I surprised my fiancé with a cooking class, and we both loved the experience. It was a great opportunity meeting the other couple who was there, as well as the space we cooked in was fabulous. Definitely will be booking another class with her!

It was an amazing experience. I learned new things that can help with every day cooking, not just modern Asian cuisine. The food was delicious and my fiancé and i had a great night.

What a wonderful evening in Susie’s beautiful home and delicious meal following class under the stars. Susie is an experienced pro ! My first such class. She really teaches. We started with basic knife handling… very helpful. Then a simple stir fry sauce from scratch. Learning to prep dumplings with many simple folding techniques was fun. Then Susie cooked … talking us through oils.. temps…. par cooking … spicing. And best of all how to cook the so delicious pot stickers so they are crunchy brown on bottom and chewy delicious on top. Thank you Susie. Lovely to get acquainted.
17 Feb 2023
Chef Susie is passionate and knowledgeable. This was our second class and each was well worth it. We enjoy learning skills (creaming garlic, balancing/enhancing flavors and optimal temp management) with good conversation and food to go along side it. Looking forward to the third class!

Class: Modern Asian Comfort Food So much to love about Chef Susie's class! My husband and I were the seniors in the class and have been cooking for many, many years. Both of us love Asian cuisine and decided to branch out from our cooking comfort zone to a cuisine we both love. Chef presented the dishes in the time order of preparation so demonstrate how the menu could be handled in a short time for those of us who have 30-45 minutes to prepare a meal. As she prepared the stir-fry, she sprinkled the science of why the recipe was prepared as it was and how not to overcook the chicken, for example. However, the star of the dishes, and the one that most of us probably needed the most guidance with was dumplings. From sourcing the wraps to preparing the stuffing (in advance) to creating a basic dumpling fold to more intricate, decorative folds, to cooking, and--best of all--eating the finished product--Chef Susie helped me to conquer my fear of creating Asian dumplings. A wonderful experience over all! Enjoy!

Susie was great! went above expectations, very nice setup and we made a delicious meal and really took the time to give tips and tricks along the way!
20 Jan 2023
Chef Susie was very knowledgeable and a great teacher! We really liked her explaining the how/why of each step of the process. The best part for us was how she explained, and allowed us to taste, how each ingredient impacted/changed the flavor. This was a great experience and would highly recommend!
20 Jan 2023
Wonderful, informative, and overall just a really good time.
06 Jan 2023
My girlfriend and I had such a fun experience. We learned multiple knife skills, how to taste the different ingredients you use, and how to personalize the recipies. My favorite part was creating the dessert, where we got to chose ingredients along the way to our liking.
08 Dec 2022
Chef Susie was amazing! She has incredible knowledge and experience about how ingredients come together to make a delicious meal. She showed us every step of how to make an ancho chili salsa and gave taste tests along the way to show how each ingredient boosts the flavor. We made tortillas from scratch and fresh guacamole that made for great street tacos. Highly recommend. it is a great experience to learn a lot about food and enjoy a meal together.

This was an event that not only was extremely fun but it was super informative. We had a great time and chef Susie was so much fun! Her kitchen was cozy and inviting. Our meal was street tacos and it was so tasty. We also were taught some interesting things about the science of cooking. Definitely recommend!

We really enjoyed our class with Chef Susie! Really enjoyed how she went out of her way to make sure everyone was involved and understood everything.
03 Nov 2022
We had a great experience with Susie. Her setup is terrific and the whole event was very hands-on. She taught not just on cooking the food but knife-handling skills, cookware, and many other topics. The small format (there were only 4 of us) worked really well. I attended with my teenage daughter and we both had a great time, learned a lot, and had some great food at the end of the evening.

Chef Susie is very welcoming, makes everyone feel comfortable no matter their skill level, and has a wonderful depth of knowledge to share. Strongly recommend!

I loved my time with Chef Susie! I learned way more than I thought I would - even techniques that applied to other scenarios. It was fun, relaxing and interesting.
24 Aug 2022
Chef Susie’s Thai class was everything we had hoped for. She was thorough and very patient. Thank you Chef!
15 Jul 2022
Susie was a lovely host and a great teacher for our class. She gave us an introduction to each meal as well as a brief cultural history. Not only did we learn how to make the 3 different meals, but she also taught us some neat cooking techniques and tricks that can be used with other dishes. This was a great first Cozymeal experience and I look forward to trying more!
15 Jul 2022

Very informative and fun! Susie has a wonderful way of teaching, and is very knowledgeable about food and cooking. We loved it and would gladly recommend it to everyone.
08 Jun 2022
Chef Suz has put a lot of effort into making her class an excellent experience. She was incredibly knowledgeable and prepared: she was great about answering every question we could have thought of, and as a result we learned all sorts of things about (for example) salt, oil, and water that we can apply to pretty much anything else we want to cook. We also appreciated how Suz was thorough about showing us ways to customize dishes not just to our dietary restrictions, but to our palates. And the food at the end was quite tasty. :) That's a ton of value in a single evening!

Chef Susie's "AUTHENTIC TASTE OF THAILAND" class was amazing. This was a fun experience that took us out of our weekly routine. Susie's approach to all the dishes was understandable and she made the lessons relatable to our level of cooking experience. In addition to the delicious food, we got the opportunity to learn proper cooking techniques, such as how to properly cut vegetables or hold a knife. We loved learning how to evaluate all ingredients that go into a dish and how to best personalize the recipes. A wonderful experience from start to finish and would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in trying out a cooking class.
18 May 2022
We enjoyed the cooking class with Chef Susie very much. The food was delicious and we learned new cooking skills from her. She explained the science of cooking which was interesting and helpful. Chef Susie is very knowledgeable and a great teacher. The location is very easy to find and her set up is great for a small group. We can only recommend her class for anybody who wants to have fun, learn some new cooking skills and eat delicious Thai food!
17 Apr 2022
Chef Susie is awesome! My family and I had so much fun taking the class with her. She was fun, informative, patient and has such positive energy. The food was delicious too. We look forward to trying out the recipes and skills she taught to us when we cook at home.

Chef Susie was great. We had a Thai lesson at her beautiful kitchen cottage. She was so helpful. Easy to understand. Broke things down step by step, and the food came out delicious. Bring Tupperware for leftovers!:) Alicia and Richard

A cooking class for two as a Valentine’s Day present couldn’t have been more perfect . The class was absolutely wonderful. We arrived with drinks, and Chef Susie was quick to get us glasses, and bottle openers. My favorite things about the class were the food, the knife skills, and the food chemistry fun facts! We made the pasilla sauce which was mind blowing, braised chicken street tacos, chocolate mousse, homemade tortillas and guacamole! Everything was so delicious! Chef Susie is very knowledgeable and truly loves teaching others how to cook. Our class went a little longer than we expected, but Chef Susie never made us feel rushed! This was such a fun date night! We’re already talking about taking another class with her.
23 Feb 2022
My Husband and I had the BEST time learning, tasting, and enjoying delicious food with Chef Susie. Not only did we have so much fun, we can't get over how much we learned and will now apply to our cooking moving forward. We can't wait to go back and keep trying our hand at more techniques! Thank you Chef - your home was beautiful and we cannot wait to return.
10 Feb 2022
What an incredible learning experience! My partner and I attended recently, found a beautifully prepared kitchen and a wonderfully thoughtful teacher. We would highly recommended to anyone looking for a great way to increase their culinary knowledge.
26 Jan 2022
Chef Susie was INCREDIBLE! My girlfriend and I went to a cooking class where we did Mexican Street Tacos and it was 11/10. The food was exquisite, but what made it so worthwhile was that Chef Susie is a remarkable teacher. I am a pretty novice and my girlfriend is a lot better, but we both learned a ton of things we will take away. If you are looking for a great time, to learn some stuff in the kitchen, and to eat a fantastic meal - look no further!
21 Jan 2022
Chef Susie was excellent. Taught us so much about our dish but also tied every step of the process to larger ideals of cooking and preparation. Had so much fun and learned more than we could’ve ever imagined. Fantastic evening!
14 Dec 2021
Chef Susie’s cooking class was simply the best. My boyfriend and I have been fortunate enough to attend a variety of cooking classes, and this was far and away our favorite. The class really couldn’t have been better. The food we made (veggie fajitas tacos, guacamole, chocolate mouse!!!!) tasted better than anything we could’ve possibly expected. Chef Susie organized the class in such a way that you end up prideful in how beautiful and delicious your meal is while also feeling like you are learning practical and useful skills to use at home. Chef Susie was personable, informative, and inspiring. The class was educational, fun, and relaxing! Finally, the food was so delicious that it was hard to believe we made it. The guacamole was fresh and flavorful. The pasilla sauce brought out the flavor of the tacos so well. The tacos made me want to keep eating forever, and the chocolate mousse was such a delightful dessert. I will certainly be attending more classes in the future, and I couldn’t recommend Chef Susie more!!!

Chef Susie is the person to spend any special occasion with. I took my husband for a cooking class on his birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Chef Susie’s energy is incredible and you are going to leave with so much knowledge about how to cook the right way!! Her place is incredibly welcoming, but private! This is the class to book if you want to surprise your dearest ones or if you want to impress your team at work!!
