Cozymeal was a unique and excellent experience! My girlfriend and I took a cooking class with one of their French chefs. We learned lots of new and interesting cooking techniques. I definitely plan on having another date night experience after a superb overall experience with Cozymeal. I’m really looking forward to the next Cozy meal!

Cozymeal was incredible! I went to a couples cooking class in San Diego hosted by Chef Fabrice and I can honestly say it was an experience I have never had before and I really look forward to having again! How often do you have the opportunity to watch a pro chef prepare 3 dishes from scratch right in front of your eyes and learn in the process! This is exciting, cool, different and something unique!

My husband and I had a great time with the Chef. He was prepared and knowledgeable. We had a lot of questions, and he always had ready answers even when it wasn't related to the meal he was cooking. The night was a lot of fun, I learned a lot, and the meal was delicious.

It was at an early age that I started training under 2 star Michelin Chef Jacques Maximin. I earned my chef's diploma with honors from L'ecole Hoteliere De Nice and have cooked for many interesting diplomats around the world. Now I live in San Diego where I love to prepare nutritionally sound meals for my clients while competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and teach cooking classes.
