We had the pleasure of having Private Chef Julia Holland come over to show my girlfriend and our friends how to make a phenomenal 3 course vegan meal from scratch and we could not recommend her more. She was so personable, knowledgeable, and professional that it felt like a good friend was teaching us how to make amazing, fresh Italian food. Between the heirloom tomato bruschetta, the vegan pesto with fresh cavatelli pasta, and the strawberry compote panna cotta it was an all around wonderful and exceptionally delicious occasion. Just waiting for the next special occasion (or any excuse really) to get her back over for another fantastic dinner night!

Chef Julia is a talented chef, especially with pasta. If you are looking to learn about pastas I highly recommend taking her class. She is also a private chef. She looks forward to sharing her skills with her guests.

We had a wonderful experience with Chef Julia. She arrived on time, brought everything we needed, and was a pleasure to be around! It was a small class, just my wife and I, and she provided the perfect mix of teaching us how to cook the meal (hands-on) vs. cleaning up for us and preparing when we were eating. I would definitely recommend her!
The Cozymeal website made everything very streamlined and easy, including communicating with Chef Julia leading up to the event. I would definitely use Cozymeal again!
