I was very disappointed with the situation. Chef Nia confirmed my reservation a few weeks before the event was to take place, but then I stopped hearing from her and she was a no show for the event. I contacted her and the cozymeal team several times. I left text messages and voicemails with the phone numbers that were provided, but heard nothing. I would have been understanding had she needed to cancel the event or had asked to reschedule, but the complete lack of communication was very disappointing.
