In this interactive cooking class, Chef Kia will teach you about global cuisines and how to blend their unique flavor profiles with classic comfort foods.

Begin with an Asian spin on fresh romaine salad featuring mandarin oranges, ginger and soy sauce followed by lobster macaroni and cheese with a creamy French béchamel and Parmesan. For the main course, craft Mediterranean-inspired pita pizzas with eggplant, feta and lamb. Vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian versions are also available. Dessert is a sweet take on Italian focaccia spiced with cinnamon, maple and brown sugar.

Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Kia's pastry class was perfect for my 15-year-old and me. I'm not good in the kitchen so my daughter was able to get hands-on experience with what turned out to be an excellent recipe for us to create together. Chef Kia made accommodations for an ingredient aversion of my daughter's (cinnamon), which we appreciated. Chef Kia was well-prepared, organized, and knowledgeable about each cooking or baking technique we used. She is also very personable so we felt comfortable asking questions along the way. Great experience with Cozymeal and we highly recommend Chef Kia!

Chef Kia is passionate about sharing her love of food with others. She shared a lot of helpful tips and techniques with us and we had a wonderful time. If you are in the NYC/NJ area, I highly recommend taking her classes and hiring her as your next private chef!
