Put a modern culinary spin on Southern favorites with Chef Pamela.

We could not have been more pleased with our Cozymeal Chef Pamela (and her assistant Ashley)...they were phenomenal and truly went above and beyond to ensure we had a fabulous & memorable evening! From start to finish, Chef Pamela was organized, incredibly experienced, professional yet engaging - she is clearly a remarkable chef and gifted at involving everyone in the group in a positive and uplifting way to create a delicious, one-of-a-kind meal together. The overall experience was wonderful - we were spending time with our future in-laws (celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary) while celebrating our children's engagement (they are getting married in July). It was an opportunity to help us celebrate two lovely events in an intimate and fun fashion so we could all get to know each other better and create a memorable evening in the process. Given her exceptional personality & natural cooking ability, she did just that! Chef Pamela clearly has an incredible gift for uniting individuals in a fun, creative & warm fashion...Ashley was a lovely assistant and worked seamlessly with Chef Pamela to coordinate the evening (& photo document it as well) while we all created a delicious and uniquely fun dinner together. Shall definitely use Cozymeal again when the opportunity arises and recommend it (and Chef Pamela) to others!
