Had a delicious Christmas dinner with Chef Jesus! The food was great and I am still drooling over the pork soup and mashed potatoes. Bonus points for dealing with my wild family and all of their dietary restrictions. :) Thank you, Chef!

Wow my friends have been telling me to try Cozymeal, hopefully this is isolated to Palm Springs but STAY AWAY FROM THEM AND CHEF JESUS. Jesus (doesn't deserve the chef moniker) was supposed to be providing a cooking with friends experience. Spoiler Alert! It did NOT happen. To start this off leading up to the event he tried to switch the time and date multiple times but we had a fixed time and date we needed. Eventually we agreed to push up the event by two hours as an accommodation for him but at the new time agreed upon he didn't even show up we had to call him and he said sorry about that but he would be providing a private chef situation as a treat for my sisters birthday and arrived instead at the original time. When he arrived he was complaining about my sisters peanut allergy and how it was so hard. I realize now he was doing this because he was trying to make excuses for changing a menu for no reason. Nothing in the menu needed to be changed except changing the type of oil needed. He said ladies I want you to "relax" and I will cook for you. He NEEDED to say this because what he was about to serve us was a bunch of premade frozen foods from the bargain aisle of Albertsons. No joke. More on that later. So we say fine and jump into a game of charades. My sisters microwave has a sticky button and if you are unfamiliar with how to press it you can't open it. we all heard him fumble with the microwave and then give up deciding to fry up the frozen egg rolls he was going to serve us. When the egg rolls are served he plops some condiments and says here you go. There's like 30 egg rolls some of which are cold on the inside. In my mind that's near confirmation that they are frozen. Next up the main course. It was supposed to be sea bass but instead it was rockfish. Like for real bro?? This experience was expensive and you serve rock fish? It's rude. And the rock fish was literally just sautéed with a bunch of pepper. It was inedible. I did not eat it. The side was rice well actually it was supposed to be a jook but I personally don't think he knows what that is. It was both mushy and crunchy clearly Jesus can't ascertain portion size. Last up was mochi. I mean it was just like mango mochi from the frozen section. Which I mean is alright but the original menu was for us to have black sesame ice cream so that's just so different. For $130 a person this "meal" was not acceptable. So we told Jesus and he vowed to make it right. We said okay and he left. We went through the trash and suspicions were confirmed. Discounted egg rolls from the frozen food aisle and rock fish $20 for the party. This guy is not a chef he's a reheating technician. The one thing that required chef skills was butchered so bad I couldn't eat it and was left hungry and bewildered. So surely when we message Cozymeals about this they will refund us right? Nope! They said he had to change the menu because of the peanut allergy. But does that mean you have to downgrade the protein and serve us frozen foods too? Jesus tried to say that we were intoxicated and that's why we couldn't do the cooking experience we hadn't had a drink prior to his arrival but how could we do any experience when it's all FROZEN. would he have been getting advice on how many seconds you need to put the egg rolls in the microwave?? Like be for real. Jesus is a scammer. And evidently cozymeals is eating it up lmaooooo Get this his new menu is based off all the frozen stuff he made for us so I guess he is covering his bases with his swindle projects he plans to continue. So just keep in mind it seems cozy meals is fine charging you $130 a person to eat Super Bowl snacks.
