Cooking Class - Simply Gourmet Tapas

Prepare a spread of tapas that are easy to make and even easier to enjoy.

In this hands-on class, Chef Rose shows you that creating a tantalizing spread of gourmet tapas can be simple and fun. To do this, Chef Rose will guide you through the creation of six different tapas dishes sure to impress your guests.

Some of the recipes you will prepare include drunk and spicy shrimp, and risotto cakes that are crispy and golden on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. Then you will move onto French apple tarts complete with a buttery, flakey crust and that melt in your mouth flavor from the caramelization of the apples.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Cooking with Chef Rose is an absolute delight! Her teaching style blends professionalism with personality in a way that makes learning the cooking process such a treat. Her gorgeous and spacious home provides a welcoming and warm environment that perfectly complements her traditional approach to cooking. If you are a lover of all things wine, Chef Rose’s in-home wine cellar will leave you in awe! Whether you are looking for a neat date night idea, or looking to sharpen your knife skills, I highly recommend signing up to take a class with Chef Rose.

To say that this experience was "amazing" or "really fun" or some other basic way of describing a good thing wouldn't do it justice. This experience and class FAR EXCEEDED my expectations! I booked this as a birthday surprise for my GF and wasn't really sure what to expect. From the moment Chef Rose opened the door and invited us into her home, we were blown away!! Not only was the food amazing, but Chef Rose knows how to teach and inspire cooking beyond your wildest dreams. She worked with my timid GF (who had no misgivings about letting Chef know that she was shy in the kitchen), as well as another student in the class. Chef Rose was patient, kind, and inspiring to bring out the best in both of them! Our class started with some very basic skills like peeling an orange (the way professionals do it, not the way us commoners do) ... we then made an exquisite salad ... simple yet complex and tasty all at the same time. Then Chef Rose taught us how to properly cut and peel potatoes, and make THE ABSOLUTE BEST FRENCH FRIES I HAVE EVER HAD!!! (spoiler alert - we didnt use an air fryer and we didnt use a deep fryer) ... and finally we learned about properly seasoning steaks and how to cook them to the perfect temperature with an amazing sauce to finish them off! IF that was everything the class was about it would be enough. Just the learning and tasting of food from a world-class chef (who by the way has been a private chef for several well known celebrities) ... but again, that's not all! Chef Rose and her husband David were welcoming and some of the most hospitable hosts I have ever had the pleasure of spending an evening with. Not only did they welcome us to their homes with open arms, Chef's husband Greg shared his knowledge about some of the finest wines and pairings known to man (ask to see their incredible 2000 bottle collection!). Finally the evening ended with all us sitting down and breaking bread together and sharing in the complete delight of what we had accomplished. OH yeah - and I can't forget the INCREDIBLE DESSERT Chef prepared for us (along with Coffee and Espresso). Whether you have ever cooked a day in your life, or you consider yourself to be an amateur professional, this class is for you! The worst thing about the class is that there is only one "Chef Rose" and we can't all hire her to be our private chef (because we would). TRULY AN AMAZING, MIND-BLOWING, and SPECIAL EVENING!! Thank you Chef Rose and Cozymeal...

Chef Rose was lovely and informative. Her teaching style was fun; she told stories about her life and course-corrected us when necessary. The meal turned out great. It felt intimate and warm!
