Chef Nick was awesome! He came over for a Valentine’s Day cooking class for my girlfriend and me. He was super accommodating for dietary restrictions and substituted delicious vegetarian options. He’s personable, friendly, had a great sense of humor, and was a great/patient teacher. Every dish was amazing. Would definitely recommend if you’re interested in a class or personal chef services!

We had an amazing time! Having a chef come into your home has normally been a comfort reserved for the ultra wealthy, and Cozy Meal has made this experience accessible for everyone! Chef Nicolas was very knowledgeable, brought his own flare and style to the dishes, and he even cleaned the entire kitchen after we finished, leaving it looking brand new. We can’t wait to remake the recipes we created that night, and want to thank Chef Nicolas and Cozy Meals for making our night such a special experience!
