Learn how to perfect the art of a humble shepherd's pie fit for a king.
In this hands-on class, Chef Meg will guide you as you handcraft a warm two-course rustic, hearty meal. Chef Meg will use her mother's infamous shepherd's pie recipe with ground beef, mixed vegetables, and mashed potatoes.
When the temperature takes a nosedive and warmer seasons instead feel more like winter, shepherd's pie is the perfect remedy. A blanket of mashed potatoes and a savory meat and vegetable filling makes for the ultimate soul-warming comfort food. For dessert, Chef Meg teaches on an equally comforting Bailey's creme brûlée.
Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

What an awesome experience. Chef Meg is great at what she does. Not only was the food amazing, but Chef Meg made us feel like friends visiting her home. My mom loved this birthday present! #missionaccomplished

We had a delightful time with Chef Meg. She is personable, knowledgeable, and well-organized. We learned many tips as she led us through the Shepherd's Pie and Creme Brulee preparation. Our time together was an absolute joy.
02 Feb 2019
My boyfriend and I took Chef Meg's Shepherd's Pie cooking class and were very impressed with the experience. We enjoyed the atmosphere and learned new cooking techniques along with the recipes. Meg was very fun to talk with and made us feel at home in her kitchen. We will definitely recommend her to our friends and would not hesitate to take another class in the future!
25 May 2018
We had a wonderful time with Chef Meg, who prepared an excellent meal and delivered a terrific, memorable evening. My fiance, for whom the evening was a gift, was thrilled with the experience. Highly recommend.
08 Apr 2018
Chef Meg and Sous Chef Doug could not have been more hospitable! We were treated like royalty. Chef Meg ensured that our every need was tended to; our recipes were available; she shared resources, tips, suggestions and provided guidance at each step along the way to guarantee that we left with the requisite skills necessary to replicate the dishes at home. Top notch Chef with the right people skills to make it an unforgettable experience!!!!!
11 Mar 2018
What a wonderfully unique experience! This was a surprise present for a birthday date night and we both were very impressed and are excited to try another Cozymeal experience. Meg was a blast to have as our chef and was both professional and immediately made us feel welcome and right at home. Her energy is infectious and time just flew on by while sharing stories and kicking back chatting while getting cooking tips. We had tons of leftovers that we ate all weekend long which was an unexpected bonus! We will be back!
26 Feb 2018
Guest 1: This was my Valentine's Day surprise for my bf, and we had a BLAST with Chef Meg! Chef Meg was very warm, kind, and hilarious! Total sweetheart! We laughed a ton, talked about shows and actors we like (she's great at remembering actor's names! #trivia), and shared stories all while our food was being prepared. This was perfect for a night with my bf, but I could totally do this with friends and wine! Oh, and we just ate yesterday's leftovers - SO YUMMY!!! Thanks again, Chef Meg!!! Guest 2 (The boyfriend who was treated to the CozyMeal as a surprise): My boyfriend booked Chef Meg as a Valentine treat, and I have to say it was the perfect date! Think of it as a private chef's table with a chef that serves an inviting atmosphere, effortless conversation, and amazing food! We've done dinner at hundreds of places, but this was truly special and memorable. If you're looking to upgrade date night, you'll thank yourself for trying this. Thanks, Meg!

Chef Meg was absolutely fantastic. My boyfriend and I took her doughnut making class as a birthday present for him. It ended up being only us and Chef Meg, and of course her dog Doug, as she graciously welcomed us into her home. She has an amazing personality and had us laughing the whole night - not to mention we made some incredible doughnuts! My boyfriend and I can't wait to take the rest of her classes and can't recommend her enough.
27 Sep 2021
The donut class was an AMAZING experience that I could not recommend highly enough! Chef Meg is hilarious and makes the class extremely engaging, and her dog Doug was an adorable sous-chef. I will certainly be back to take a class with her again!
15 Sep 2021
Chef Meg was absolutely incredible-- she created an interactive cooking experience for my husband's birthday that was fun for both kids and adults alike. Best part about it -- we had an amazing meal that we now know how to make! Highly recommend.

27 May 2021
I booked Meg's class for my (long-distance) partner's birthday and he ABSOLUTELY loved it! Meg was very accommodating beforehand as I wanted to keep this a surprise for him :) He had a great time (and banter) with her (and her wonderfully cute dog) - what I would do to have one of those doughnuts!!! Next time im in DC i will definitely be booking a class with Meg, and I recommend you do too!!
04 May 2021
My husband and I joined Chef Meg for an Italian night - learning how to make pasta. Chef Meg was awesome. She put us both at ease the moment we walked in, along with her dog who was adorable throughout the night and so very well behaved. Chef Meg has patience, humor, skill and the ability to make a learning experience a truly fun and informative session. We have a wonderful time and wish we had done this sooner. So many recipes and so little time! Chef Meg thank you.
14 Apr 2021
My mom and I had an amazing time! This was our first cooking class ever and Meg was incredibly friendly, easy to talk to, and an amazing teacher. Meg also has an amazing sense of humor and balances cooking, teaching, and hosting excellently. I would recommend her to any friends interested in trying something new or looking for a good meal with a lot of laughs
09 Apr 2021
Meg was fantastic! This was a birthday dinner for both my husband and my daughter. Meg was able to modify the menu a bit for my kids, and they absolutely loved everything. Everything was delicious and Meg left the kitchen sparking clean. It was a great experience and I highly recommend it.
05 Apr 2021
Chef Meg came to our apartment for a cooking class and we had an amazing night! We recently bought a pasta maker and Meg not only showed us how to set it up and use it, she also answered all of our questions and left us with so many tips and tricks. While we were not really sure what to expect as we had never taken a private cooking class, Meg put us to ease and made the experience so much fun. She was so thoughtful and funny throughout the entire evening and she really did an amazing job as both a teacher and entertainer. We are already figuring out when we can take her class on duck!
18 Mar 2021
Meg was soooo much fun and we loved the food! She taught us about the food and made the experience so great. So very happy with this experience and recommend her to everyone!
15 Mar 2021
Chef Meg was amazing! Super personable and funny and her dishes were simply delicious. She was a great teacher and made my wife and I both feel like rock stars. If you want a great meal and to learn a little Chef Meg is for you.
13 Mar 2021
AMAZING for every part......She’s funny, she answer all your questions...she explains everything...SHE IS AMAZING from the moment she walked in our home- professional knowledgeable....SHE DON’T DISAPPOINT....
28 Feb 2021
Meg was truly so wonderful and made the entire experience so much fun! Not only was she a phenomenal cook, but she was hilarious and really amazing to talk to the entire time. I choose this private dinner as a surprise gift for my foodie boyfriend and it was a really unique experience, perfect while we cannot have traditional dining experiences right now. Would definitely recommend this experience and Meg for a great food adventure!
17 Feb 2021
Chef Meg is just as fantastic as the food she helps you create! She is engaging, energetic, and loves to illustrate useful tips and tricks in the kitchen. She has an easygoing attitude in creating wonderful tasting food and helps illustrate how approachable all of it is, thanks to her skilled guidance. You don't need to be apprehensive of your kitchen skills - she's got your back! Chef Meg is quick to share many laughs with you and creates a fun, interactive, and empowering environment throughout the experience. This is 100% worth your time and effort! And do you know what Meg spelled backwards is? Gem. Boom! Chef Meg, a true Gem!
25 Nov 2020
Chef Meg is amazing! I reserved a private dinner with Chef Meg as a birthday gift for my friend. Meg was very responsive and kind in her messages leading up to the day of the dinner. My friend and her husband were extremely happy with Meg and her services, and told me that "the chef was so sweet, and the food was amazing." Meg wore a mask the entire time and even went out of her way to give my friend flowers for her birthday. Thank you so much for making my friend's birthday special. I really appreciate it.
23 Nov 2020
Meg is truly amazing. Her cooking is fantastic but so is her personality. Would highly recommend.
23 Nov 2020
Chef Meg was awesome! She was so personable and funny! She really created an atmosphere where it felt like 3 old friends making dinner together. Her cooking tips were very helpful, and of course the food was amazing! Also she has the best sous-chef, Doug (her very friendly dog haha)! Such a great experience that I would recommend for any occasion.
22 Nov 2020
Chef Meg did an exceptional job for my wife's birthday. She allowed me to customize the menu, and the food was fantastic. She was friendly and polite the entire evening. And she left our kitchen even cleaner than what it looked like when she started. She even brought my wife flowers, which was such a nice touch. I would 100% recommend her.
20 Nov 2020
Best. Chef. Ever! Meg was extremely accommodating for my girlfriend’s birthday. She brought flowers for her, arrived on time, and was flexible with our furry friend at the home ☺️. I will definitely contact her again and recommend her to anyone inquiring! Thank you so much CozyMeal for bringing Meg into our world!
20 Oct 2020
Chef Meg made my wife's birthday an incredible and interactive experience. Her positive and easygoing attitude combined with her impressive knowledge made the day. I would absolutely recommend booking her and we look forward to doing so again in the future.
13 Oct 2020
Chef Meg was incredible. This is WAY overdue but she put together an amazing evening. She helped to teach us how to recreate the first meal we shared together on our first date which lead up to me proposing to my now wife. She was in on the plan and made a nervous situation a really memorable night for the both of us. The food was amazing, she was amazing and we look forward to having another occasion to share with Chef Meg! Thank you!
06 Oct 2020
Chef Meg was great! The food was amazing, my husband and I had never done anything like this before and it was such an awesome first experience. Chef Meg has some awesome stories, tips, and skills! + Doug. That’s all I’ll say. Doug stole the show!
05 Oct 2020
Chef Meg was awesome. She was very personable and very prepared in her meal prep and instruction. I would participate in another lesson. P.s. She has officially spoiled me with fresh pasta.
05 Oct 2020
Chef Meg was very welcoming and engaging with the cooking lessons. We talked about food and decorations for the house, while enjoying a good home cooked meal.
23 Sep 2020
Meg was fantastic and the food was delicious! This was a perfect way to spend an anniversary celebration. Thanks Chef Meg! We had a great time.
17 Sep 2020
For our 30th wedding anniversary Meg did the honors of cooking a superb three-course dinner at our home in DC! Meg exceeded our expectations in all respects. She was receptive to our suggestions for the menu for the evening, she had sourced high quality ingredients, she arrived promptly on the evening of our anniversary, she was friendly and pampered us with her attentive service, and most importantly she cooked a fabulous feast that was presented beautifully and tasted delicious. To our delight and a bit of surprise, she left the kitchen immaculate! If you are looking for a memorable dinner just for you or a small gathering, I would recommend Meg unhesitatingly. She is outstanding!
10 Sep 2020
Meg is so incredibly welcoming and an absolutely amazing soul. She is HILARIOUS and made the whole experience so incredibly fun. I just want to be her friend and hang out with her all the time
31 Aug 2020
Chef Meg was ACTUALLY the highlight of my 2020. She is SO fun and SO funny. The duck duck mousse meal with Chef Meg was amazing and I can’t wait to make it at home. Chef Meg will definitely be my go to for future date nights and “impress mom while she’s in town” activities :)
21 Jul 2020
Meg was our first experience with any private cooking class and she may have spoiled us. Meg makes it more than just a cooking class, you can tell how much she loves doing what she does. If you are trying to have a great time, in an inviting, warm house, with the most gentlemanly dog in the world, Meg is your go to chef. She's not only great at what she does, she's also just a great human being to connect with. For us, this experience has made us realize that cooking is really meant to be a fun experience, where you fill your stomach and your heart. Thank you Meg, don't ever stop being you, until next time. -Urby & Robert
13 Jul 2020
Had a blast! Meg was a pleasure!
29 Jun 2020
Once again great experience with our favorite chef. Who knew fresh pasta was so easy to make??
08 Jun 2020
Chef Meg was a wonderful host with a fun kitchen and full of little tips for preparing and serving delicious food! I'm biased to like dark meat poultry so of course I loved the duck, and geeked out about the deviled eggs and chocolate mouse. My date loved the food and got along famously with the Chef, and we both loved our time. Would do again!
25 May 2020
Chef Meg made our Cozymeal a true VIP experience in our own home! We had a very memorable and delicious 33rd Anniversary!
23 May 2020
Great meal and celebration of our 33rd Anniversary. Chef Meg gave us great tips and we had a lot of fun.

11 Mar 2020
Meg was great. Learned a lot and had a lot of fun doing it.
10 Mar 2020
Great sense of humor, great tips, great class!
09 Mar 2020
I am truly beyond words. Chef Meg made us laugh so hard I fell out of my chair multiple times. Imagine having a stellar Michelin rated meal prepared for you by Amy Schumer. She gave us tips and tricks for how to make life easier in the kitchen and made everything so seamless. We had such a good time time, everything else dulls in comparison. Easily the best experience I've had in the District since I moved here over six years ago and would 10000% recommend for anyone. If you haven't signed up for a class with Chef Meg, you are genuinely missing out.
08 Mar 2020
Everything about this experience has been nothing short of amazing! Not only was Chef Meg a great instructor, she’s so down to earth and welcoming. There’s was never a dull moment. We were always laughing and had super smiles on our faces. Her Sous Chef, Doug, is the cutest! Great experience and would totally do it again!!
04 Mar 2020
This was our first cooking class and we had the best time! Chef Meg was very welcoming, explained different cooking techniques, and made the class very enjoyable. We felt extremely comfortable and learned a great amount from the 3 recipes that we tried. The food was delicious and the company was even better! Can't wait to try another one of her classes!
24 Feb 2020
Chef Meg was a delight! It was such a great birthday gift. I had a chance to experience Chef Meg's fantastic cooking skills and great sense of humor when a friend signed me up for this class. We had a wonderful time and I left with great tips and feeling confident that I could make pasta from scratch on my own.
22 Feb 2020
Every so often you meet someone who had found her true calling in life and Chef Meg fits the bill! She’s an amazing chef/instructor and a world-class story teller. She had us laughing and learning all night as she guided us through a tasty three-course experience. I’m already planning to book another event with Chef Meg and her great pup Doug. P.S., ask her to do an impersonation of a man named Fernando. You won’t regret it.
22 Feb 2020
Wow! What an incredible experience- I can’t recommend it enough! Chef meg was not only an awesome chef/teacher, she was an amazing host! She made you feel right at home and stuffed you with delicious food. Can’t wait to replicate this incredible meal?
21 Feb 2020
Meg is the best! Me and my husband had an awesome time, She was super patient, knowledgeable and very ver sweet! and (wait for it) you get to pet Mr. Douglas!!! What else can you ask for?!
16 Feb 2020
I went to Chef Meg's donut making class for Valentines Day with my boyfriend. We had an absolutely lovely experience with Chef Meg (and of course her adorable dog Doug). Her expertise and professional experience was very impressive, but even more so, she is a patient and caring teacher. We had great conversation, and amazing donuts to both snack on there and take home. Highly recommend Chef Meg's class!
12 Feb 2020
Great Experience! Great personality! Great Food!
12 Feb 2020
What an incredible experience! Chef Meg is the perfect person to learn from! She has so much knowledge that she makes digestible for the beginner chef and creates a fun and lighthearted atmosphere. The food we made was excellent and we look forward to trying it by ourselves at home. This was the best!
05 Feb 2020
Our second class with Chef Meg and it was just as enjoyable as the first! We made pasta from scratch and would definitely recommend the class to anyone wanting to learn. Her dog Doug is also the best cooking mascot!
05 Feb 2020
If only I could give her 10 stars! Chef Meg was fantastic...making our experience fun, informative and delicious! She generously shared her cooking wisdom, offering helpful hints to use in our own kitchens. She helped us through the preparation and creation of a three-course Italian meal, while offering a warm, friendly environment. The hours rolled by with lots of laughter and delicious food. We could not have been happier with our experience! Thanks again Meg...you made our weekend!
30 Jan 2020
Chef Meg's cooking class was wonderful - thank you for such a rewarding experience!
26 Jan 2020
We really enjoyed our dinner with Chef Meg. She was extremely personable, so we not only enjoyed our dinner, we enjoyed her company.
26 Jan 2020
Meg deserves more than 5 stars! I booked a class for my wife's birthday and we had an incredible experience. Not only did we learn to make great food in a way we could replicate later, Chef Meg was a wonderful host who tells amazing stories and jokes. Whether or not you have cooking experience is irrelevant. You'll learn something, laugh a bunch, and feel right at home in minutes!
22 Jan 2020
Chef Meg was very welcoming from the moment we arrived at her place! From the food to the conversation and tips to making this meal at home, everything was wonderful. We would love to take another class with her!
20 Jan 2020
Wonderful time. Beautiful place and fun time. Definitely worth it
19 Jan 2020
I surprised my boyfriend with this cooking class and it did not disappoint. Not only was the food delicious, Chef Meg was a delightful host and teacher. I'd recommend her to everyone looking for a fun cooking experience. Tell Doug we said hi!
14 Jan 2020
My son and I had a wonderful time with Chef Mag. We learned knife skills as well as how to make the duck and mousse. I would highly recommend Meg as your chef for any Cozymeal experience!
14 Jan 2020
I gifted this Cozy Meal cooking class and it was an incredible experience that completely exceeded our expectations. As a “surprise gift” for my foodie boyfriend, my nerves were at an all-time high, however, Chef Meg was very helpful during the planning process by quickly answering my questions and providing an amazing wine recommendation to pair with the meal. I immediately knew we were in for a treat when we welcomed by Meg and her dog, Doug (who is actually a human in disguise :) ) at the door. The menu and food preparation was impeccable. We learned so many useful tips and tricks that we’ve already started to incorporate into our normal cooking routines. We enjoyed learning her delicious versions of the recipes and already successfully seared another duck breast on our own. By the time we left, we felt as though we had a wonderful evening with an old friend.
12 Jan 2020
This was such an amazing experience! Chef Meg is absolutely wonderful; she does a fantastic job teaching you new cooking skills that you can replicate at home and the food was DELICIOUS! Chef Meg also makes the class so fun because of her amazing sense of humor, kind hearted nature, and wonderful stories. I would highly recommend taking one of Chef Meg’s classes!
10 Jan 2020
If I could give fifty stars out of 5, that would be Chef Meg's score. I took my girlfriend to Chef Meg for a surprise birthday dinner, and the experience was out of this world. There is no way people can have planet-wide-echoes of laughter while kneading dough and making fettuccine unless it's with Chef Meg. Do not worry if you have zero cooking experience. You will be welcomed with Chef Meg as she is beyond friendly and extremely helpful with anything and everything. It was really exciting to learn new tips and tricks in the kitchen, and the handmade pasta will blow your mind and ruin boxed pasta. Disclaimer: The location appears to be a residential area and may seem odd to some at first. Rest assured, you'll feel comfortable and right at home!
06 Jan 2020
I went to this class as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday and we had a great time! Non stop laughter and we learned to make pasta from scratch. Very simple recipes and easy to make on your own.
31 Dec 2019
More than just a meal! Meg is an amazing & fun person to talk to and helps create an entire experience that goes beyond food. Food is delicious! Definitely recommend the creme brûlée’! Can’t wait to take her cooking classes!
23 Dec 2019
I cannot recommend Meg and this class enough!! Meg was absolutely fantastic!!! She was so funny, knowledge, and an amazing host. It was a fun evening and she made pasta making so easy! We can’t wait to take more classes with Meg :)
03 Dec 2019
FANTASTIC!!! We couldn't have enjoyed this more! Chef Meg was great. She gave us lots of good tips that made us each feel better equipped in the kitchen. The food was beyond excellent. Best duck in ten years ;). Also, be sure to meet Doug!
23 Nov 2019
Meg was AWESOME! My husband and I had the absolute best morning making donuts. Chef Meg was beyond accommodating, super talented, hilarious, and a delight to hang out with. If you’re considering booking with Meg, run don’t walk!!! You won’t regret it. We left full, happy, and with great book and tv recommendations.
19 Nov 2019
We did the Duck Duck Mousse class with Chef Meg and she was absolutely amazing!! We learned a ton and had so much fun doing it!! Chef Meg was kind, patient and instantly fun and engaging. She answered all of our questions and gave us tons of tips that we can use going forward. Plus the duck was absolutely delicious! And a huge bonus, she played with our 1-year-old daughter while we ate, which was definitely not a part of her job description! I cannot recommend Chef Meg enough!!!
16 Nov 2019
Delicious meal! Comfortable place! Cute dog! Nice chef!
14 Nov 2019

11 Nov 2019
We had a great time with Chef Meg! The class was so much fun, and we enjoyed the experience of making pasta from scratch for the first time. Also, the bruschetta with heirloom tomatoes was amazing. We highly recommend Chef Meg and her Italian cooking class!
09 Nov 2019
Chef Meg was great. The entire experience is like going to a friends house and learning new tricks while catching up. She had some great kitchen tips along the way, not intimidating at all and made me feel like I can definitely make that meal at home. I love that we did this in her kitchen with no fancy tools. Just every day kitchen utensils that just about anyone would have in their home, which made it all very realistic to do. I’m definitely coming back to her and would recommend this to anyone. I’m going to be coming back to do another class with her and a group of friends. She is fantastic and a great experience overall from cozy meal!!
05 Nov 2019
Chef Meg was INCREDIBLE! The class was the highlight of mine and my boyfriends trip. She made the anniversary date memorable. She was extremely funny, engaging, and patient with us. 10/10 would recommend. Plus, the food was top tier! :)
03 Nov 2019
Thank you Chef Meg for giving us the confidence to make a big bowl of pasta! We enjoyed the class and we will be sure to tell others.
26 Oct 2019
My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed Chef Meg. The entire experience and service was top quality. I have told so many people her. She’s so amazing. I can’t wait to take another class with Chef Meg!
22 Oct 2019
Chef Meg was not only a great chef, but also a great hostess! She had so much energy and it made it easy to socialize with the other guests as well. The food was, of course, amazing and the she even told us where to get the harder to find ingredients. For my first Cozymeal experience, it was fantastic and definitely has me recommending to my other friends.
21 Oct 2019
Such an amazing time! I can't express how enjoyable our experience was. Chef Meg made our class so unique and fun and blew away our expectations. Her little doggie was the best little chef too.
07 Oct 2019
Second time using Chef Meg — loved it again!
05 Oct 2019
Not only is Meg a wonderful chef, but she is such a fun person! I'd certainly take another class with her anytime.
24 Sep 2019
Chef Meg was awesome. I loved her energy and her home is extremely welcoming. She made the cooking experience very comfortable. Allowed us to participate and welcomed us into her kitchen as if it were our own. The meal was exceptional and Doug was also a great asset with the experience. I will definitely book again and I encourage those to do the same. Chef Meg rock and looking forward to more sessions with her!
11 Sep 2019
Chef Meg was great! She was very knowledgeable, patient and funny. The recipes were simplistic, delicious and could be made with basically everything you would normally have in your kitchen...no need to purchase expensive items that you would probably use only once! Loved Chef Meg!
09 Sep 2019
Meg was amazing and funny. The food was awesome and I learned enough to go home and do everything myself. I'll be back to see her and Doug very soon!
06 Sep 2019
We truly enjoyed her and the menu...loved it and would love to do another class !
28 Aug 2019
Chef Meg was perfect! A complete joy! She not only gave us great insight on several cooking and prep techniques but she also gave my daughter inspiration to want to cook more. All the food was excellent. We had a wonderful and fun time from hello to goodbye.
25 Aug 2019
Chef Meg was an absolute delight! Great personality, excellent chef, really made us welcome in her home - I cannot rave more about our experience. Anyone who has taste buds should choose her.
19 Aug 2019
My husband and I had a great evening! We thoroughly enjoyed the class. Meg did a wonderful job and the food was delicious!
04 Aug 2019
This was an incredible experience. Meg made us feel immediately at home and explained all of the details of cooking the meal - down to how to properly hold a knife- and answered every other question we had. It felt more like a friend teaching you how to make an amazing meal while non judgmentally answering every question that crossed our minds rather than a class. We can’t recommend spending an afternoon with Meg enough, and we will definitely be coming back.
04 Jul 2019
I had an amazing time with Chef Meg. She was hilarious and a very talented chef. I will be recommending her to my friends. I also loved Doug ?. I can’t say enough how fun the day was. Thank you Chef Meg!
01 Jul 2019
Two friends and I took the Fresh and Seasonal Italian class with Chef Meg and it was an incredible experience! Meg, her home and her adorable pup Doug were all super welcoming. Meg tailored her demonstrations to our skill levels and I left the class inspired to remake the dishes sometime soon. As an added bonus, Meg is hilarious and kept us cracking up the whole time. I can't wait to go back and take another one of her classes!
22 Jun 2019
It was a absolutely great experience! Chef Meg was wonderful and the food was delicious!!
21 Jun 2019
I purchased a class with Chef Meg as a gift for my husband's birthday. I can't emphasize enough how much we enjoyed our evening! Chef Meg was an excellent teacher, our food was delicious, and the conversation was excellent (if she wanted to, Chef Meg could definitely have a second career as a stand up comedian). If you're looking for a fun way to spend an evening while having a hands on experience cooking, Chef Meg is the person to book with!
18 Jun 2019
My cozy meal experience with Chef Meg was amazing. She really knows how to make the experience one of a kind with her bright personality. My girlfriend and I enjoyed learning how to make pasta from scratch and enjoyed the meal that we helped create. We had a romantic candle lit dinner out on Chef Meg’s cozy balcony which made the experience special. The best part of it all was Chef Meg’s cute little dog named Doug! We will definitely be going back for another cozy meal experience thanks to Chef Meg!
10 Jun 2019
Donuts with Chef Meg was wonderful - cannot recommend highly enough! We learned so much and felt so comfortable in Meg's lovely home. The class was fantastic and the donuts were incredible! And a special shout out to Doug, the adorable doggy audience to our class :)

Our experience was great! The duck was the best we’d ever had. I’m still thinking about it 2 days later. Chef Meg was great as well! It was the right mix of learning, relaxing, and enjoying. We would definitely love to have her cook for us again! Cozy meal made everything easy, especially when I needed to change the date and reschedule. I have been recommending you guys to everyone.

OMG Chef Meg is amaaaaazing! She is so much more than a chef. I personally think she could have a second career as a stand-up comic. Our experience was wonderful! I literally purchased a pasta making machine after the class. We had a blast. She is great at her craft but more importantly she is genuinely cares about her guest.

What a phenomenal experience with Chef Meg.! Definitely changes your perspective on personal dining. Chef Meg provided an intimate yet memorable experience. Looking forward to dining with her again. Thanks

Chef Meg was wonderful and so was her sous chef, Doug! I surprised my husband with the Fresh and Seasonal Italian meal for our anniversary because he loves Italian food. I am gluten intolerant and Chef Meg was able to accommodate my gluten allergy. She took great care to research the best gluten free alternative bread and flours. The three course meal was delicious and interactive. My husband and I had so much fun making pasta noodles from scratch! We brought a bottle of wine with us, but when we opened it it was bad; but Chef Meg was generous and shared some of her own. Chef Meg is not only an excellent chef, but she is a delight to be around! My husband and I had a wonderful time and highly recommend cooking with Chef Meg.

I purchased a class with chef Meg for my husband’s birthday. We learnt how to make donuts, and that was a fun experience! It would be fun to do everything ourselves (including mixing the dough, frying the donuts) but I understand that the format is a bit different and it would take much longer. So I appreciate that everything went well and smoothly. Chef Meg is a charming and very pleasant person.

Chef Meg is wonderful! My boyfriend and I took her Duck Duck Mousse and had a blast. As soon as we stepped in the door we felt welcomed and comfortable. We will be back!
25 Apr 2019
Meg was awesome! So kind and welcoming. And the meal was delicious. I definitely look forward to more classes with her.
22 Apr 2019
Definitely 5 stars! I decided to buy a Cozymeal experience for my boyfriend to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. I wanted to do something a little different and this fit the bill. I thought he might be a little skeptical, especially going to a stranger’s house, so I didn’t tell him until we were in the car. He went in with an open mind and loved it. Meg is uber personable and the night flew by. She really put us at ease right from the beginning & I could tell we were in good hands. We made pasta from scratch and it was so good! Would definitely recommend Meg & Cozymeal.
19 Apr 2019
Chef Meg is great! She has such a bright, sassy personality and she is really good about helping you meet your personal goals. Her recipes were a great balance between delicious/fancy and manageable / easy to remember. I can easily apply the skills we acquired to lots of other dishes, and this really alleviated the intimidation that cooking held for me.
12 Apr 2019
We had a FABULOUS time with Meg! My husband and I were looking for new things to do with our parents who were visiting from out of town and this was a hit! The food was delicious, and I realized I like duck since it was prepared so perfectly (juicy with a crispy skin and OMG yum sauce.) We laughed a ton and enjoyed the tips and recipes we got to take home with us to try these dishes at home. We will definitely do this again and highly recommend Chef Meg! Oh, and we can't forget about her dog Doug, he was so friendly and cute.
08 Apr 2019
She was amazing and sweet. Told all of our friends about it when we got back to NY!
29 Mar 2019
Truly a great experience! This was a wonderful date activity with my wife and Meg could not have been a more perfect host/Chef. We will definitely taker her other classes.
27 Mar 2019
Chef Megan is great! Highly recommend her class!
20 Mar 2019
We had a great time with Chef Meg. She has a lovely kitchen space and we had great conversation with her. She is very fun and enthusiastic. The food was also delicious. We felt very comfortable with Meg and we definitely feel like we could make everything we made with her at our own home.
17 Mar 2019
I would highly recommend doing a class with Meg! I signed up myself and my best friend for her donut making class and we had so much fun. Meg was very funny, easy to get along with, and had a lot of good kitchen advice. We hope to do more classes with her soon.
16 Mar 2019
Chef Meg is an absolute delight! We had so much fun chatting and cooking with her. The food was delicious! Would highly recommend.
15 Mar 2019
Meg was FANTASTIC!! As soon as I met her, I instantly knew why she received 5 95-star reviews. She has an infectious personality, gave us a wonderful birthday experience, and the duck and deviled eggs she taught us how to prepare was simply delightful. Her space was magical, and her communication skills are top-notch. She was absolutely lovely to converse with and we had an amazing time celebrating my fiancee's birthday. You'll LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this class and her.
10 Mar 2019
Chef Meg was terrific, she made us feel comfortable from the start and was engaging throughout the experience. Not to mention the duck was delicious and her dog is adorable.
06 Mar 2019
Meg was AMAZING!! The entire experience was absolutely phenomenal - her house and kitchen were decorated so well and really ideal for the experience, the food was absolutely unbelievable, she kept giving great tips to feel capable of recreating the meal, and Meg is an absolute riot. She made the event so much fun and had us laughing from start to finish (we legitimately want her to be our best friend). Really cannot recommend her enough!! Will definitely book another experience with her.
27 Feb 2019
Meg was absolutely fabulous! I did this as a birthday gift for a donut lover and it far exceeded both our expectations. She was so informative, a great teacher, and so fun!! Highly recommend! Look forward to hopefully doing a full cooking class with her again.
26 Feb 2019
Chef Meg was amazing! She was so friendly, fun and an certainly an expert in cooking. She taught us how to elevate our cooking. The food was fantastic and we can't wait to replicate it again in the near future. She teaches a few classes other than Duck, Duck Moose and we plan to take her pasta-making course in the future.
24 Feb 2019
We had the best time with Meg. She was a fantastic teacher and chef! We were laughing all night long and loved her dog Doug! We couldn’t not recommend taking a class from Meg more!
23 Feb 2019
This cooking class was a Valentine’s Day gift for my husband who is a HUGE donut lover. Cheif Meg was absolutely phenomenon. She was professional and friendly, made us feel very comfortable from the beginning to the end. The donuts were so so sooooo good! Even my husband said it was the best donuts he ever had. I loved every single moments during the class. Thank you so much for the wonderful time today!! I joked about giving her 1 star today. I don’t think she still deserves 5 stars, she deserves at 10 stars!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jen & Josh
20 Feb 2019
My girlfriend and I cooked “Seasonal Italian” with Chef Meg in her kitchen and all was fantastic. Gastronomically, our homemade fettuccine, carbonara sauce, bruschetta, and basil panna cotta were spot on. We enjoyed learning tips and methods we didn’t already know and Meg is a great host in being both entertaining and educational. Would highly recommend to others.
17 Feb 2019
We had such an incredible time with Meg! Not only were the donuts delicious and easy to make, but Meg is a wonderful host!
12 Feb 2019
My wife and I did the doughnut making class and it was awesome. Chef Meg was a great host and teacher and gave awesome tips on cooking in general as well as specific tips for the doughnut making process. We had a blast and loved the taste and look of the doughnuts. We will definitely be taking another Chef Meg class in the future and trying out the doughnut making at home. Thank you Chef Meg!
06 Feb 2019
Chef Meg was AMAZING! My girlfriend and I had an absolute blast and the food was absolutely incredible (we did the Belgian night – highly recommend). I cannot recommend her enough. We will cherish this experience for a long time.
30 Jan 2019
We had no idea what to expect with this experience but it was so fun and Meg made it a night to remember for sure! She gave us great tips, a wonderful meal, and A LOT of laughs-- we will definitely be doing this again!
27 Jan 2019
This was an amazing experience! Not only did we learn a lot from Meg but we had lots of fun. She is very sweet and personable. Her house is lovely as well. We will be returning to cozy meal and probably take another one of Meg’s classes. Totally recommend this experience!
23 Jan 2019
My wife and I had an amazing time making donuts with Chef Meg. It was such a comfortable and fun atmosphere yet at the same time we learned a lot from her. The donuts were incredible and you get a lot of them, but will have to display some self control to make sure they make the trip home! Thank you Meg!
23 Jan 2019
Chef Meg was awesome and so much fun. She made the experience very comfortable for everyone who attended, and the menu was delicious. I would strongly recommend Chef Meg to anyone looking for a fun, informative, and tasty dinner experience.
22 Jan 2019
This experience as a whole was awesome!! Chef Meg is really great at what she does as a Chef and also as an Entertainer during the cooking class! My girlfriend and I did this class together and it went really well, her home was very welcoming and was a great setup for a dinner date. Meg taught us a ton of little tips and tricks around the kitchen that are super useful for the meal she made and cooking in general. All 3 courses were unbelievable as well, I highly recommend this cooking class with Meg, you wont be disappointed!!
22 Jan 2019
Meg was an absolutely delightful teacher and hostess. From the moment we stepped into Meg's v well-appointed townhouse, we were made to feel at home. The Italian menu was not only delicious but something that my husband and I feel like we can make ourselves (including the homemade pasta!) And, Meg is just wonderful: loads of positive energy and good fun. When we left, we felt like old friends and look forward to signing up for another class with Meg in the near future. (Though, she is lucky that we didn't run off with Doug, her adorable canine assistant - -) I absolutely recommend Meg without any reservations ;)
18 Jan 2019
Chef Meg truely is the best! From the food being delicious, Chef Meg makes you feel so welcomed and comfortable around her. 100% would recommend to any one interested in a great night, she is such an amazing human being!
14 Jan 2019
Chef Meg was entertaining and walked us through the class providing tips to make the menu more easily repeatable after the class. Making the pasta was very fun and hands on and the pay off was delicious!
12 Jan 2019
Chef Meg was fantastic! My son (age 9) and I had a great time making donuts. She was very engaging and had him helping in every step of the process. He can’t wait to test out the recipe at home!
10 Jan 2019
Chef Meg is a remarkable chef. The food was unforgettable. Meg was patient and focused in her teaching efforts. She was great with me (a 40 year old) and my son (age 7). Thank you Meg!
30 Dec 2018
Chef Meg was amazing! We learned so many tips from her and the food was absolutely delicious. She has a great personality that made the evening so much fun!!!
15 Nov 2018
Chef Meg was fantastic. Her knowledge, creativity, and sense of humor made our evening extra special. The food was delicious and I would not hesitate to work with her again!
20 Oct 2018
We had such a great time with Chef Meg. She completely reworked the menu because of our very last minute dietary restrictions and the food came out so fantastic. She did an excellent job and explained her cooking process very practically for us to understand how to build the recipe step by step. We highly recommend this class to anyone who loves amazing pasta (and wants to incorporate it into their weekly rotation) and enjoy a great night of entertaining, informative conversation. Also we have made variations of the recipe over 4 times in the last month and we love it! Thank you for all the great cooking tips and for being so accommodating!
05 Oct 2018
Meg was fantastic. I love her teaching style. She gave a great demo and then had my fiancé and I try. She was great at directions, feedback, and tips for cooking in the future. Not to mention, the food was fantastic! We had a wonderful night full of laughs and great food!
30 Sep 2018
At first, my fiancee and I didn't know what to expect but as soon as we met Meg we were pleasantly surprised. Meg is awesome! She is personable, knowledgable, a great teacher, and full of hilarious food puns. If you enjoy learning new, insightful tricks|tips about cooking, laughing, and just having a great time we highly recommend booking an appointment with Meg.
26 Sep 2018
Chef Meg was full of energy, charm, and made the night amazing for my nephew and myself. We had such a great time!!
25 Sep 2018
Meg was great! We loved her class, and she was very fun and engaging! We gave her a tip in person
18 Sep 2018
My girlfriend and I had so much fun making donuts with Chef Meg (and her little dog, too)! Meg made us feel right at home and comfortable as soon as we walked in. She walked us through what we'd be doing, then coached us as we started making glazes and the dough. The final product was delicious and way too much to eat in one night! Along the way, Meg was very entertaining and shared many hilarious stories, as well as several helpful cooking tips. We had a lot of fun and got a lot out it, so I would highly recommend!
17 Sep 2018
Very informative, fun, delicious & a fantastic evening for our date! Meg is not only an outstanding Chef & teacher but really makes it fun & relaxed.
15 Sep 2018
Chef Meg made our anniversary dinner super special. Not only was the meal delicious, but she was super easy to get to know, funny, and knowledgeable about food. We enjoyed getting to know Meg (and her adorable and friendly dog, Doug), learning how to prepare a super easy homemade pasta, dessert, and appetizer. I would recommend her to anyone!! Thanks Meg!!
15 Sep 2018
We could not have had a better time with chef Meg! She had us in stitches from the moment we walked in the door and the food was to die for! We can’t wait to try making it at home! Such a great experience and we look forward to taking another class with chef Meg soon!
09 Sep 2018
We had a blast with Chef Meg and the food was delicious! Will definitely want to try another one of her classes. Thanks, Meg!
08 Sep 2018
Meg was incredible, we had the best time with her and were howling with laughter the whole time — she is hilarious. And that doesn't even count the food which was to die for, Meg made it seem so easy to make and we'll definitely try when we're home. We'd give 10 stars if we could, we'll definitely sign up again.
07 Sep 2018
The class was amazing! The food was great and Meg is a lovely person! I loved everything!
06 Sep 2018
A really nice evening
02 Sep 2018
We had the best time with Chef Meg!! Could not have been a better night- amazing food, Chef Meg is so warm and welcoming and had us cracking up all night at her stories. Can’t wait to book with her again!
29 Aug 2018
An exceptional evening. My 12 year old granddaughter and I found Meg very solicitous and supportive and demonstrated an expertise only a professional would have who has practice for a number of years. We plan on attending another session with Meg to learn how to prepare a different exotic cuisine. Would heartedly recommend her for an outstanding cooking experience.
20 Aug 2018
She was absolutely wonderful, we had such a great time! We can't say enough to say how wonderful she was! I will be recommending her to my friends and family!
15 Aug 2018
Class with Chef Meg and her adorable pup Chef Doug was an incredible experience! She made us feel right at home in her kitchen and taught us how to prepare a beautiful and delicious meal. She had us laughing and kept us entertained for nearly four hours. I highly recommend if you are looking for a fun or different date-night!
06 Aug 2018
Yesterday my son, his wife and I spent a wonderful afternoon with Chef Meg. We were looking for a fun experience, but were also serious about learning how to make home made pasta. We were not disappointed. While it’s not exactly difficult, we learned that there are a lot of details that go into making pasta. Knowledgeable, personable, and a natural born teacher, Chef Meg took us through the process and gave each of us a chancellor some hands-on practice. Two of our party had never done this and they went home confidant that they could do it themselves. The third in the party had made pasta a number of times over the years, but felt that there was still something missing in her technique. Watching Chef Meg cleared everything up for me and here I am, a day later making the perfect batch of fettuccine on my own. The appetizer and dessert courses were outstanding -- no surprise. Throughout the class, Chef Meg passed on a number of techniques that all of us were unfamiliar with. If you are looking to spend an entertaining, instructional, and delicious afternoon or evening we highly recommend chef Meg. Anne
31 Jul 2018
Meg is a hoot! And, she’s a great chef. My 11yo son and I had a great time learning great tips about knife skills, seasoning, and taking our time to bring our great flavors. What a great evening of fun! And her sous chef, doggie Douglas, was icing on the cake!
28 Jul 2018
We had a blast with Chef Meg! Not only was the food amazing but Meg was so much fun! We enjoyed everything about the night and left with full tummies! Side note: Chef Doug, her dog, is adorable!
15 Jul 2018
OMG! Best cooking experience ever. The atmosphere definitely makes you feel at home. We picked the duck dinner but we will DEFINITELY do the donuts next! Thanks Meg
13 Jul 2018
Chef Meg was awesome. I booked the making donuts thing with her to do as an outing with my 14 year old daughter. Meg was great with her. She even get my daughter to laugh out loud! It was a great experience. And Douglas (her dog) is pretty cute too!
12 Jul 2018
Our evening/date night with Chef Meg (and Doug) was incredible! Meg immediately made us feel welcome at home and kept the food and laughs coming all night. We had the bison meatloaf and deviled eggs - both were delicious and the recipes (which you get to take home) are easy enough to replicate. Meg is more than happy to provide tips and tricks and keeps you involved throughout the whole process. Highly recommend a class with Meg!
05 Jul 2018
We can not say enough about Meg!!! She was truly the PERFECT person to guide us through our first cooking class. This class was a surprise for my husband, and let me just say, my husband just kept thanking me for booking this class once we left. THANKS MEG for helping me gain "great wife points". Meg was such bright, bubbly, down to earth spirit. Her kitchen was clean and easy to navigate. Most of the time we had to split our time between laughing at her hilarious stories and paying attention to the cooking. The meals were simplistic and delicious. I love being surrounded by people that are passionate about their craft and Meg was absolutely passionate about cooking and making it an enjoyable experience. Lastly, we must show some love to her four legged Soux chef Douglas. If you listen closely you can hear him whisper, "You got this. My mom is great." All I can say is that from beginning to end our experience was great. The customer service was speedy and informative and Meg created a great experience. Thanks Cozymeal for making date night memorable.
02 Jul 2018
Chef Meg was great! Although the class is not as hands on with the food, Chef Meg is very funny and a great teacher about her various techniques. Chef Meg keeps the night lively and entertaining and the food is absolutely amazing.
30 Jun 2018
Amazing food and great conversation! Meg made us feel comfortable and relaxed from the start, and chef Doug (the dog) was great entertainment. The deviled eggs were insane, and the main course of duck was unreal. Portions were full, with even a bit to take home- we certainly didn’t leave hungry!
29 Jun 2018
Chef Meg was super personable and made the evening fun. The food was delicious and beautiful. She sent us home with recipes, leftovers and the extra duck fat for making duck fat fries at home! Would definitely do this again and highly recommend for others to try!
27 Jun 2018
She was awesome! So much fun. She is a true professional and made the experience magical.
23 Jun 2018
Meg was incredible! My boyfriend and I had an amazing time with her. The food was excellent, and she was extremely friendly and adaptable in my kitchen. She also accommodated my boyfriend's tree nut allergy, which was a plus. I strongly recommend booking a class with her. She is personable and an impeccable cook.
16 Jun 2018
Chef Meg is the absolute best! I booked her for a Father's Day surprise dinner and the experience was AMAZING! Her spirit was beautiful and she kept us laughing the entire evening with her witty personality. She established great rapport with us, including our 4 month babygirl which made our hearts warm. Chef Meg was very knowledgeable and the 3 course meal was Perfect. We selected the "Duck Duck Moose" entree which was delightful and tasty. I would highly recommend Chef Meg, I promise you will be pleased. She was pleasant, professional, personal and fun. My significant other and I will definitely be booking her very soon. Thank you so Much Chef Meg. I can't wait to meet up again!
13 Jun 2018
Chef Meg is an excellent entertainer and an even better chef! The duck was cooked perfectly! We enjoyed our experience and highly recommend it! -Doug and Jackie
30 May 2018
Chef Meg was a joyous wonderful teacher! Very personal, warm and knowledgeable!
29 May 2018
Chef Meg is absolutely amazing! This was my first time working with a chef, and she made the entire process go seamlessly. She was incredibly welcoming, patient and willing to answer any questions. She guided us throughout the entire process and made me feel like I was a rock star in the kitchen for the first time in my life. Her helpful tips along the way and her great sense of humor had us engaged and excited to learn more the entire time. My boyfriend and I could not stop talking about how much fun we had when we returned, and we literally found ourselves telling everyone we bumped into about our wonderful experience. The donuts that we made were so delicious that we ate almost all of them before we left. Although this was out first time meeting Chef Meg, we left feeling like we had known her forever because of her warm personality. Thank you, Chef Meg, for making it such a memorable experience! We can’t wait to book our next class with you!
29 May 2018
As a Mother’s Day gift, I took my mom to a class taught by Chef Meg. Meg was absolutely fantastic (so was her pup Doug, who worked quality control) and we learned so much from her. We left with some tasty treats and also feeling like we had known her for years. I would not hesitate to recommend Chef Meg to anyone, and I’m looking forward to booking my next class with her!
27 May 2018
Chef Meg is an amazing chef with a very personable personality. She catered to all of our strict dietary needs, such as no meat and eggs in the cooking. The food tasted amazing, as well and we had a great time with good music in the background. She taught us the simple basics of cutting and including different flavors, which will definitely come in handy for future dishes! The Sous Chef, Doug, was also a pleasure to have in our company. We’d occasionally turn around and see his big brown eyes staring back at us! We’d highly recommend the experience with Chef Meg!
15 May 2018
Meg exceeded all of our expectations. We had such a fun time cooking, learning, and talking. She has such great stories and had us laughing all night. The food, especially the homemade pasta, was so delicious and realistic. 100% recommend. Can't wait for our next cooking experience with Meg.
13 May 2018
As first time CozyMeal users, we didn’t know what to expect. Duck, Duck, Mousse with Chef Meg definitely exceeded our expectations! Chef Meg felt like a new friend almost immediately and we laughed together all night. She clearly loves what she does and it shows. We left with full bellies and solid culinary tips, planning to book with Meg again soon.
10 May 2018
Thanks Meg! Great experience!
02 May 2018
We had such a great experience with Meg! I gifted this to my boyfriend for his birthday and we had a great time learning how to make pasta. We chose to meet Meg at her apartment, which was super easy to find and park at. Meg's meal was fresh, delicious, and easy to make. We left so stuffed! Meg herself was incredibly pleasant and funny and her sous chef Doug was adorable :) would definitely recommend for a birthday gift or even a date night!
30 Apr 2018
Chef Meg exceeded our expectations! She was warm, friendly and hilarious! She welcomed us into her home like we had known each other forever. Her prep chef, Doug, was 5 stars as well. He recommended his favorite (the yellow duck) but we stuck to Meg's original menu :) Definitely plan a night with Meg!
28 Apr 2018
Chef Meg was great! We had a great meal- like fine dining brought to your home- and she had so many great anecdotes and tips about cooking. She showed us the whole process, answered all of our questions (we had quite a few), and made it fun. It was the right balance of instruction, interaction, and relaxing while someone else does the work that we were looking for. Definitely a great value in comparison to going out for a good meal, since its obv BYOB!
21 Apr 2018
As a first time cozy meal user, I would recommend Chef Meg to anyone. She made the experience feel incredibly personal and it felt as though we have known her for years. The food was phenomenal and her instruction was top notch. If you want to have some laughs, learn how to cook great food, and be incredibly full Chef Meg is the best of the best.
20 Apr 2018
Chef Meg was quite simply the best. My wife and I loved having her over and cannot recommend her enough to others looking for an incredible experience. Chef Meg was a fantastic teacher who gave useful tips for both the meal itself and other random cooking questions we lobbed at her. It quickly felt like we were just having a close friend over for dinner, as she was so easy to talk to and get to know. The food was amazing...we wish all our fine dining experiences in DC were half as good as the one Chef Meg was able to create in our own home. The duck was paired with a sauce that took the dish to a whole new level, and her surprise addition of bacon to deviled eggs was inspired. Book her as soon as you can! You will love it.
19 Apr 2018
I bought this is experience for my girlfriend for Valentine's Day, she had expressed interest in learning more about cooking this year. We couldn't have been happier with our experience and date night with Chef Meg. Meg was wonderful, and made the whole experience so fun. She was super funny, welcoming and explained each step of the meal really clearly. Sous Chef Doug was the perfect addition, and we can't wait to follow his instagram account! We loved the whole experience and can't wait to sign up for another night with Meg soon!
16 Apr 2018
My experience with chef meg was awesome! She was very friendly and funny. I learned a lot of useful tricks and she showed us how to use different flavors to bring out the taste. We had a great time! Thank you chef meg for a wonderful meal.
13 Apr 2018
If you are reading this review... PICK CHEF MEG!!! I was choosing between two options and read her reviews and chose her... best. decision. ever! My husband and I had the most wonderful experience with her Seasonal Italian 3-course Dinner. We laughed the entire night and shared stories over the most amazing meal. Chef Meg is so talented and such a wonderful instructor... she even took the time to share her insider tips and tricks and alternatives for my vegetarian diet! We ended the night having found a wonderful friend in the city and can't wait to book her again. Thank you Chef Meg! :)
06 Apr 2018
Chef Meg is absolutely fabulous! This was a perfect date night experience. My husband and I had so much fun! Meg explained everything so well and the food was delicious. She is so warm and inviting and made us feel comfortable the whole time. Would definitely recommend! Thanks for a great night :)
03 Apr 2018
Chef Meg was amazing. My girlfriend and I had a great time with her and Doug. The food was absolutely fantastic. She is very knowledgeable and gave us many tips that we use in the kitchen today. The night was filled with many laughs. We would definitely do it again and recommend her to anybody. Don't miss out on the awesomeness of Meg
02 Apr 2018
What an incredible experience! Meg’s Italian pasta-making class was wonderfully executed. She took a hands-on approach, explaining the science behind pasta formation, as well as the dessert-making process. And the end result was a rich, delicious meal of which I had helped make! Moreover, Meg’s warm demeanor and witty personality kept me entertained the whole evening! She is a talented chef and an amazing host!! I’d highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants a small, intimate dinner or a larger teamwork experience!
01 Apr 2018
?? Meg made our entire evening amazing from start to finish. We chose the Italian option, which was perfect for us, and Meg was well versed in teaching and simultaneously preparing the meal for us. In addition to the meal being beyond delicious, Meg's personality elevated the experience to the next level. Although not needed for us, it is wonderful to know that she can bend over backwards to accommodate most any dietary restrictions. We would highly recommend Meg to anyone looking for a personal chef or culinary immersion.
31 Mar 2018
I loved Chef Meg! She was very friendly and responsive, even helping me figure out how to reach her apartment. She (and her adorable dog) kept my boyfriend and me entertained the whole two hours, as she has a wonderful personality and interesting personal stories. That being said, I thought this experience would be more "hands-on", as stated in the event description. Instead, my boyfriend and I idly sat for 1.5 hours as we watched Chef Meg do a host of things, before we finally got to participate in the last part of glazing the donuts. The donuts turned out to be delicious, though, since Chef Meg is truly a talented chef!
29 Mar 2018
We had an amazing time with Chef Meg! The food was incredible, and we loved spending time with and getting to know Meg. She immediately felt like an old friend. Meg was also extremely accommodating of our food allergies and went above and beyond to make sure we were enjoying our food. As a gay couple, we felt comfortable and welcomed, which is something we're both grateful for and don't take for granted. We would recommend Chef Meg to any of our friends and hope to take another one of her classes soon. Until then, we'll continue raving about our experience and bragging to our friends about our cool new pasta making skills :) Thanks, Chef Meg!
26 Mar 2018
We had a blast with Chef Meg. We laughed, we cried with laughter, and we cooked a delicious meal. This was our first cozymeal/cooking class and the bar has definitely been set high. If you are looking to learn how to make a delicious meal and have a good time doing it, Chef Meg has you covered. She has many years of experience working in kitchens from Italy to New York to Vegas and all of the stories to go along with it lol. I can't recommend Chef Meg enough!
20 Mar 2018
Meg was a WONDERFUL teacher! We got the class as a Christmas gift and were hesitant about the process, but from the moment she met us in the lobby, Meg made us feel instantly at home. She was an excellent and hilarious teacher, and the food was incredible. Duck is my new favorite food!

We had such a fantastic experience with Chef Meg! Not only was the food (duck, deviled eggs, chocolate mousse) delicious and top restaurant quality, but she explained every detail of the meal prep and cooking, and provided recipes and instructions, ensuring we could make this at home. Meg was so sweet and just a blast to talk to -- we shared stories and laughed the entire 3 hours. She really has the perfect personality and experience for this job. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you for an amazing birthday date experience!

Our experience with Chef Meg was wonderful! Very friendly and engaging! As someone who is hesitant when it comes to baking, she answered all of my questions regarding the science behind baking as well as giving us useful tips. The doughnuts, the glaze, ganache, and filing were all heavenly! And the leftover doughnuts were still (almost) as good the following day

Chef Meg was nothing short of AMAZING! We had a great hands on experience with explanations of the cooking process every step of the way. As a casual date night we chose the “Duck, Duck, Mousse” meal and had absolutely NO REGRETS! Chef Meg not only gave instruction but also a vibrant personality that made the entire experience one to remember. From the date’s perspective: from arrival, Chef Meg was warm and welcoming. Her home was gorgeous - the set up was great for an intimate date night. She was informative, kind, hilarious, and the perfect catalyst for a great night. AND the food was great! We learned so much and enjoyed every bit of it. Cozy meal is lucky to have her.

Chef Meg was kind, friendly, and engaging. She helped us when we needed it but also let us take charge. The donuts we made were absolutely fabulous: rich, crunchy, and soft. Her selected glaze flavors were delicious! She offered practical tips and useful skills, such as how Jacques Pepin cracks an egg. We had a really great time!

This class was amazing! Chef Meg was so inviting and fun to be around, and clearly passionate about cooking and teaching others. Of course the donuts we made were delicious, and just as good as leftovers the next day. The experience truly exceeded my expectations!

Amazing experience, food and all around good time. I don’t think anyone can go wrong with a class from Chef Meg. Can’t wait to do this again!

Meg was AMAZING!! With a capital A and all caps! She was friendly kind and skilled....she is a great person and I highly recommend anyone to go and see her. Her love for cooking is obvious and it shows in how she talks to you and answers any of her questions. Her dog is adorable and her stories about her husband will make you sad he's not present lol. Thank you chef Meg for a great experience.

Chef Meg is wonderful! She is so personable and knowledgeable about the culinary arts, and more than happy to answer any questions about techniques and recipes. I was so thankful she adapted recipes to fit my diet restrictions, too. Her dishes were so yummy—seared duck breast, roasted herb vegetables and a dairy-free chocolate mousse with a wine-soaked cherry sauce. Oh my. De.Li.Cious. This was my first time attending a cooking class, so I don’t have anything to compare my experience to. I do believe Chef Meg sets the bar REALLY high, and I can promise that you won’t be disappointed if you book a lesson/class with her. She’s fantastic! (This review is from a happy wife who was gifted the class from her husband)

We had a great time at Chef Meg's, learning to make pasta, panna cotta, and bruschetta. Chef Meg was warm and welcoming and we picked up a lot of great tips for cooking on our own. And the food was delicious!

We had such a great time in Chef Meg's class! She is warm, fun, & welcoming and taught us to make some delicious dishes. We loved the small group feel and Meg was super gracious answering our many questions and teaching us some neat cooking tips along the way. I had a question after the class about one of the recipes, and she replied to my text right away with the answer, which was going above & beyond and so appreciated. We hope to do another class with Meg soon!
