My husband booked Chef Pierre’s “The Sole of a Fish” as a surprise for my birthday (although I think it was as much for him as for me). Chef Pierre entertained us with many stories from his experiences as a chef and culinary instructor while his hands on approach made the lesson both useful and enjoyable. The fish dish and the tarte tatin were delicious and looked just like the photos. Chef Pierre’s skills as an instructor became evident when we attempted these dishes at home a few days later. They came out nearly as well as under Chef Pierre’s direction.

What a fantastic experience! We booked Chef Pierre's "The sole of a fish" cooking class in Los Angeles and had him come to our place to provide us an in-home cooking class as a date night. Chef Pierre arrived on time with all the equipment and ingredients. He walked us through the existing courses and had us prepare some of them (under his guidance) and let us watch him prepare when we felt like just sitting behind and enjoying a cooking demonstration. The dishes were DELICIOUS and chef Pierre was an excellent instructor. In addition to being an excellent chef and instructor, he has several decades of experience working for some of the top Michelin-starred restaurants and cooking for some of the world's top celebrities. He often shares interested stories about his past which makes the whole experience even more entertaining. What a memorable evening! Thank you Chef Pierre!

When my granddaughters visit, my wife and I always are looking for something special to do with them. It’s hard because they are 10 and 12 and they have already seen and experienced so much. A friend told us about Cozymeal, and when we looked at the website, we were excited with what we saw, because both girls watch “Chopped” and other cooking shows on TV. The 12-year-old was coming in two days, and there was only one time block that would work, so we knew there was little chance of scheduling an experience that soon, but we decided to at least give it a try. We spoke to Rosario, who graciously told us she would see what she could do. We were pleasantly surprised that she was able to work out a dinner session with Chef Pierre, and that was only the first of the serendipities we experienced. In brief, Cozymeal and Chef Pierre gave my granddaughter and wife an experience I think they’ll always remember. Once the appointment was booked, Rosario and Chef Pierre both reached out to us to make sure everything would go smoothly. My granddaughter had dietary restrictions, and when we explained them, the decision was made to go with the “The Sole of a Fish.” I had a little experience in the food industry, so I knew the photo on the website was probably done in a studio with all kinds of artificial sprays and enhancements to make the food stand out, plus some PhotoShop work afterward. Imagine my surprise, when the finished dinner looked just like the photo. Chef Pierre arrived with everything he needed, including a fascinating old pot that he’s been using to cook apple tart tatin and nothing else for decades. Since his lesson was done in our kitchen, he first took a survey to determine what dishes, cookware, utensils, ranges and ovens and refrigerator space he could use. He supplied whatever was missing. Once he brought all the food and supplies in, he got right into his role as Chef de Cuisine, and my wife and daughter became his sous chefs. He ordered them around while I tried to take some videos and photos and stay out of their way, because they were busy preparing the ingredients. During the process, Chef Pierre not only showed them cooking techniques and explained every step, but he also entertained them by telling them some of his cooking experiences around the world, including when he was one of the chefs doing an Academy Awards dinner. His story of how he learned his special technique for making couscous was particularly interesting, and when we ate it later, the story added extra spice that made it more delicious. We contracted with Cozymeal for two people to make dinner with Chef Pierre, but we took advantage of the reasonable additional charges to allow for myself and my granddaughter’s parents to join the “cooks” for dinner. So it was a marvelous, tasty dinner for five, including fish, couscous, salad (that Chef Pierre decided to include even though it wasn’t in the agreement) and tart tatin. But not really, because there was enough fish, couscous and salad for a couple of leftover meals for me and we still haven’t polished off the French upside-down apple pie. As promising as the Cozymeal idea was on its website, the experience exceeded all expectations. Thank you.
