I cannot say enough how appreciative and satisfied my wife and I were with Chef Lamour’s delectable menu and warm hospitality. Aside, from the joys of learning new knife skills, food nutrition, and how to make a simple but tasty vinaigrette and chocolate filled spanakopita, we also discussed life and philosophies. It was truly a unique and fun experience. Even more, Chef Lamour made everything from scratch and was able to provide a menu that met my wife’s nutritional needs for her diabetes. We are so grateful to have had her as our first experience and introduction to CozyMeal! She was truly fabulous!

My partner and I had her Mediterranean class and Chef Lamour could not have been any more amazing! From her warm and fun personality to her culinary expertise; it was a great experience. She was super communicative and detailed from the minute I booked the class till the night of the class. Chef Lamour makes the entire experience fun, insightful, and delicious . . . we actually forgot we were in a class and felt like we were getting taught to cook by a friend. We definitely recommend her and you definitely need to stop whatever you're searching and just book her!

Absolutely amazing meal! I was worried about going to someone's home to cook but this was one of the best dates I've had. The atmosphere was inviting and relaxing. The Chef was knowledgeable, engaging, understanding and an all around kind person. I learned a lot from this experience and would recommend it to those whom love to explore via their taste buds.

In her class, Chef Lamour brings her classically French trained style to the table where we learned various ways to prepare a moroccan feast! The chocolate tart was so tasty and I loved how she really emphasized the importance of presentation to make the dishes really pop.

Chef Lamour was very pleasant, the experience was very knowledgeable she explained a lot while assisting me and my fiancé to prepare and cook the food which was delicious. Would definitely come back again.

So, first off my fiance and I had a GREAT TIME. Set aside the cooking and food for a moment Chef Lamour was just super fun and personable. We sat around gossiping and talking like old friends. And nothing goes better with good food than good conversation. But we also left with new tricks and skills in the kitchen which is what you went there for right?! My lovely lady was the one to find this experience and I'm ever grateful to her for it because this was well worth the time. Side note, but very important, this is a very intimate experience. Chef Lamour, my fiance and I, and another couple in a small space. It was perfect for making things feel very natural. Do yourself a favor and try it out.

It was such an amazing night! Chef Lamour was so friendly and professional. We learned a handful of new techniques to use in our everyday cooking. The meal was phenomenal—probably one of the best I’ve had in New York City. What a cool experience. I would do it again!

Chef Lamour outdid herself. She surpassed our expectations and provided us with an incredible evening full of good food and great conversation. We felt so comfortable and at home in Chef Lamour's kitchen, and she taught us so much about the meals we cooked together. While the food was outstanding, the best asset this class offered was Chef Lamour's personality. She was so much fun to cook with, and she made it certain that we enjoyed our evening. We brought bottles of wine and drank happily throughout the cooking. 10 star review for Chef Lamour if that was possible.

Chef Lamour was such a delight to meet. I booked an evening with Chef Lamour for my boyfriend's birthday and he absolutely loved the experience with her and of course the food we cooked. She is such a talented chef, we learned new techniques and had great conversations. I brought Tupperwares just in case we were not able to finish the food which we in fact did not finish. She kindly packed our food to go. We loved every part of this experience. We had an amazing night and we would absolutely book again!

I booked this experience for my 1 year anniversary with my girlfriend and we had such an amazing time! Chef Lamour was extremely friendly and personable!! We really enjoyed the experience and learned a lot while doing it; it was a good balance between learning, doing, and eating. I recommend that you come hungry, especially if you are doing the steak dinner!! Chef ensured that we had leftover containers for our tasty meal. Overall I highly recommend this experience, we had a lovely evening and a very delicious meal!

We had an absolutely wonderful evening at Chef Lamour's home for the Parisian Bistro class. It was clear that Chef Lamour was an incredibly talented chef, but she imparted her many years of wisdom and cooking techniques in an incredibly accessible manner. She somehow managed to keep all four attendees engrossed in conversation while she easily orchestrated a 4 course meal (with no timer)! I am writing this review just a mere 12 hours after our cooking class because we truly had a great time. Thank you Chef Lamour for an incredible evening and for making us feel so at ease while learning new techniques. I highly recommend Chef Lamour to anyone looking to learn more about French cooking (and wine!). Truly outstanding!

Chef Lamour was phenomenal! My partner and I were celebrating his birthday, and she made the evening very special for the 2 of us. She was very thorough with the explanations of the different cooking and chopping methods and was a delight to chat with about the old NY. My partner and I would definitely experience her delicious cooking again! ;-}

Excellent chef. Down to earth and easy going personality. Perfect date night was a cooking lesson with Chef Lamour.
07 Mar 2019
I booked this unique cooking experience for a valentine’s day present for my fiancé and I. We are amateur cooks and enjoy cooking and always looking for a unique food experience. Chef Lamour was a fantastic chef, teaching us how to use the knife to chop, the techniques for brazing vs sautéing, and how to make the best chocolate soufflé you’ll ever make. It was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend Chef Lamour.

04 Jan 2019
Lamour was an excellent host. She was delightfully engaging. The preparation and the eventual dining of each course culminated towards a climatic dessert, the Apple Galette. The Cheese Plate also was a very nice touch to say the least. My wife and I were more than satisfied with the experience. Highly recommended!

I do t think the overall experience was worth 125.00.The wine should have been included.We weren’t given any recipes to take home.We felt she was lacking professionalism.
03 Nov 2018
A wonderful experience, with a wonderful chef who was very skilled at her craft and cooked and taught with lots of passion. We learned a lot and the meal was delicious, I ate everything done to the last chicken bone. I booked Chef Lamour for my fiancée birthday as a surprise and she enjoyed every minute and Chef Lamour was very fun to be around and cook with. Thank you! 5 Stars.

I’m blown away by Lamour’s extensive knowledge of food coupled with her incredible dishes. For many years, I have enjoyed the range of her creativity from wild game to her pastry endeavors. I am particularly impressed by her ability to provide knowledgeable descriptions of her food, why she decided to pair those particular items, describing flavor profiles and how to properly prepare foods. While many of us may never quite achieve her level of culinary expertise I appreciate information that I’ve received all while enjoying Lamour’s delicious array of courses. She’s a culinary genius!
05 May 2017
Chef Lamour did an amazing job giving a cooking class for my woman's group. We had so much fun and she make it very easy for us to cook a great meal while bonding with the team. I am usually very intimidated by cooking classes but I was in good hands with Chef Lamour.
17 Mar 2017
I heard about cooking demonstration parties and wanted to try it for my business. I can’t say enough about LAMOUR. What a wonderful experience, truly Top notch and so much fun. Lamour hosted an event for my business that included clients and staff. The presentation was expertly done; the meal was beautifully crafted and delicious. My clients were thrilled and want to host their own food centered event with LAMOUR.

Several months ago I had a gathering of some of my fellow pastry chefs over for a casual cooking class in my home. Although we are all pastry chefs, the savory side of food is an adventure for us. We had Chef Lamour to conduct a class and prepare the meal for us. She not only helped us prepare a fabulous meal, but pared it with the appropriate wine and topped it off with her own signature marshmallow pie platter, which took courage to present to a group of Executive Pastry Chefs! They were delicious! Her professionalism, experience and personal touch are top of the line.
