We had never done something like this before, and Alex made it so easy and comfortable. The food was delicious, and he left the kitchen in perfect condition. Great date night idea! We’ll be looking into a class with him next.

We received Cozy Meal experience as a gift. We weren't sure what to expect. Inviting a stranger in our home to teach us cooking techniques while cooking a 5-course meal seemed so unorthodox. However, what a treat it was. Chef Alex was very friendly, and he adapted well to our kitchen area. We started with making a bolognese. Once that was in the oven, we made ricotta! It tasted amazing. I will be making it again. We roasted tomatoes and pancetta and enjoyed a delicious bruschetta with an arugula salad and a homemade vinaigrette. This was followed by making our own pasta, cooking it, and smothering it with the bolognese. For dessert, we enjoyed a caramel custard that tasted like werther's caramels. The whole menu is Chef Alex's own creation. This was a meal we would order at a nice restaurant. Very delicious and now we can make it at home for ourselves. I also want to add that my 9 year old granddaughter joined in on the fun. Chef Alex was very patient with her and took extra time to explain the process with her. I didn't expect her to eat much of the meal, but she ate some of all of it, including the arugula salad. Overall, we were very pleased and would do it again thanks to Chef Alex.

Chef Alex was fantastic! He answered all our questions and explained the process thoroughly so that we actually learned some new tips. He also was just a truly fun human to be around and we ended up with a delicious meal. Highly recommend!
