We had a fun night with Chef James. We bought food together at a market and then joined him in his kitchen for the prep and then meal. By one critique is that I wish there was more content to the evening--meaning learning more, hearing more stories about what we were eating and the style of cooking. Overall, the food was fantastic.

A terrific meal, simply prepared. I was looking to learn some cooking techniques. He made a pasta with cream sauce, a salad, sauteed squashes and ramps, and a leg of lamb, each with only a few ingredients, but all wonderful.

We loved our experience with Chef James. We enjoyed designing the menu for a variety of tastes within our family, and helped pick the veggies and meats at the local market and pasta shop. Chef James is very hospitable and is truly gifted in making all cooking steps easy to grasp all while being a gracious host in his beautiful home. I encourage any family visiting the Bay Area to use Cozymeal and Chef James for a unique travel experience.
