Chef Julia was the best! The food was delicious, but more importantly Chef Julia went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. Incredibly personable and fun to talk with, and was extremely informative about the dishes and her past culinary experiences. We could not have asked for anything more and had an incredible class. Such a fun time!

We had a wonderful experience with Chef Julia. She arrived on time, brought everything we needed, and was a pleasure to be around! It was a small class, just my wife and I, and she provided the perfect mix of teaching us how to cook the meal (hands-on) vs. cleaning up for us and preparing when we were eating. I would definitely recommend her!
The Cozymeal website made everything very streamlined and easy, including communicating with Chef Julia leading up to the event. I would definitely use Cozymeal again!

We had the pleasure of having Private Chef Julia Holland come over to show my girlfriend and our friends how to make a phenomenal 3 course vegan meal from scratch and we could not recommend her more. She was so personable, knowledgeable, and professional that it felt like a good friend was teaching us how to make amazing, fresh Italian food. Between the heirloom tomato bruschetta, the vegan pesto with fresh cavatelli pasta, and the strawberry compote panna cotta it was an all around wonderful and exceptionally delicious occasion. Just waiting for the next special occasion (or any excuse really) to get her back over for another fantastic dinner night!

Chef Julia is a talented chef, especially with pasta. If you are looking to learn about pastas I highly recommend taking her class. She is also a private chef. She looks forward to sharing her skills with her guests.
Chef Julia’s skill and drive have led her to a fulfilling culinary career as a chef at hotels and resorts and even as a chef for private clients. She has created pasta programs with acclaimed chefs and is highly skilled in pasta making and wine pairing. Friendly, courteous, and service-oriented, Chef Julia is excited about engaging with new faces through cooking classes and private chef experiences.
