We booked Chef Gill's cooking class of different braising techniques in Santa Monica and had a blast. We braised different types of vegetables as well as chicken. Chef Gill is knowledgable, patient and really a fun chef. In the end, we had prepared a tasty multi course meal and we all sat down together and enjoyed it. Thank you Cozymeal! I look forward to my next cooking class.
