My wife Cathy and I had a great afternoon and cooking experience with Chef James. We really enjoyed his hospitality and cozy home and kitchen atmosphere in the San Francisco Haight-Ashbury District. Most of all we appreciated him teaching us how to properly prepare Spanish Paella. Looking forward to returning.

Chef James! My parents had the most wonderful time taking your class. Today they made my sister and I the paella you taught them to make yesterday! It was so delicious. They posted pictures of their experience on their social media accounts and now all their friends want the details about how they can take a similar class.

I am kinda disappointed after attending this class. I would say this was actually not a class, it was more like a social or eating event to be exact. We were not provided any hands on experience at all during the whole class. No receipes were given during the class. We were just standing in the kitchen and watching James cooked for about an hour. He gave little details on how he cooked the Paella. Most often times, people asked him why this and why that, then he answered. Seems like he is very passive in a way of teaching but he cooked a really yummy Paella. If I knew the class will be like that, I would not have signed up this class. We can just watch YouTube online. Maybe this is not the class that I expected. I expected a more hands on practice. And I expected the chef/teacher will explain more details to enchance our cooking knowledge and of course on how to properly cook a Paella. I wonder if all the classes at CozyMeals are like that. I would like to sign up for other classes but this class makes me think twice before I sign up the next one. One thing I found funny is liek I received an email asking me to tip the chef. Is it a restaurant? Or a class? Felt like it's more like a restaurant to me if I am being asked for a tip. If you are looking for a real cooking class, it's not a place. If you want to eat yummy Paella and spent few hours together with your significant half, that's the place.
