We had a wonderful time at Chef Gene's home! This was a special treat for a friends 30th birthday and it didn't disappoint! It was cozy and we sat outdoors in his beautiful garden. The meal was fabulous and he provided wonderful advice and instructions we home to try on our own sometime! I highly recommend this experience!

Chef Gene was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was good, if not great. However, the experience is not what was advertised or eagerly anticipated. I contacted Cozymeal two nights prior to the event to confirm the experience would be more interactive, and their Chef Community Manager responded that the class was "very hands-on". The only interactive component of the entire evening, was placing the pre-made butternut squash filling into wonton wrappers (which were surprisingly delicious) and sealing the ravioli. The entire balance of the four course meal was prepared (prior to our arrival) and assembled/cooked by Chef Gene while we sat around his dining table. While it was nice to be sent home with the recipes, it would have been far more satisfying to prepare the meal (or at least MUCH more of it) ourselves. Also disappointing was that the location originally advertised on the Cozymeal website was changed the day before from an ocean-view backyard in Pacific Palisades to an ordinary (and rather warm) dining room in West Hollywood. However, the company was really friendly and easy-going. The conversation was great and it was nice to meet new people.

I was raised on the East Coast and graduated from Wesleyan University. I took my first step in culinary education by traveling to Russia, where I was inspired to recreate the French-influenced cuisine of the Tzars. I immersed myself in French cooking, training at the Le Cordon Bleu. I then traveled to Italy, and under the tutelage of Chef Massimo Natale, focused on authentic Italian cuisine. I credit Julia Child as my culinary muse, and once had the great fortune to meet her.
