Reviews Chef Derrick received outside of Cozymeal



30 Oct 2017

Engaging and funny, Chef Derrick makes even the most novice cook feel at home, even when stuffing and pan-frying empanadas or learning a little-known French technique to perfectly plate ice cream. The thing that stands out most about chef Derek is his engaging and warm personality. Rarely without a smile on his face, chef Derrick explains simple and advanced cooking techniques with ease and humor. I asked a mix of questions - easy/starter chef questions to see how he would explain them, and also about more advanced techniques that I personally wanted to know - and he had a simple, wonderful answer for every one.
