An aromatic, warm, saucy, and fresh Italian meal made completely from scratch? Now that's amore!
In this hands-on class with Chef Malik, you'll learn the essential skills and techniques to bring an array of Italian-inspired comfort food to the table.
You'll begin with a freshly made Caesar salad with authentic dressing and homemade croutons. Then, you'll learn just how easy it is to make a silky alfredo sauce. You won't even think about reaching for the pre-made stuff at the store again. Once your homemade garlic bread is golden-brown and fragrant with that heavenly garlic-butter smell, that's your cue to sit down and enjoy your feast.
Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
The Chef Malik Italian Experience is one for the books. Chef Malik walks you step by step to create an Italian meal from scratch and explains the origin of the ingredients and how they evolved. Will definitely book again!

Excellent experience! Chef Malik helped us prepare a delicious Caribbean inspired curry and taught us the value of using freshly ground spices.

I booked this experience for my boyfriends birthday and we honestly could not have been more pleased. Chef Malik was presentable, knowledgeable, entertaining, and prepared. We LOVED all his tid bits and wisdom. Will absolutely be recommending him to friends and family.

My wife and I had such a great evening with Chef Malik! We would highly recommend him, and in fact, have already done so to our friends. He showed up on time and came prepared with everything we needed for our meal (and them some, you have to see it to believe it!). We requested a slight modification to the menu, which he graciously accommodated. We not only got to enjoy eating a delicious meal, but we had a fun time preparing it with him, and learned quite a bit in the process. Thanks Chef Malik!

Chef Malik was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and a great teacher. The fresh seafood feast was even better than anticipated. His homemade ice cream truly is the best! Would absolutely recommend and are planning to book another cooking experience with him in the future!

Chef Malik knocked it out of the park with our Valentine's Day evening of Authentic Italian Fare! We learned SO much about the science behind the foods we were cooking, the history of some of are favorite dishes (we'll never make Caesar Salad in anything but a wooden bowl again!), and about culinary techniques. Everything was delicious - especially his Alfredo sauce! We'd recommend Chef Malik and Cozymeal to all our friends and family. We have a modest kitchen in a junior one bedroom apartment but he made transitions between courses seamless. We appreciate all the hard work and effort that went into making this night special.

The family had a pleasant evening with Chef Malik! Thank you for the hospitality!

A+ effort! We have quite a few allergies (Soy, dairy, egg, nuts, seafood) and Chef Malik was able to work around all of those, which was impressive to say the least. He was enjoyable to learn from and provided us with a lot of good tips. Due to our many allergies he was able to stay long to help make it work - he even cleaned the kitchen for us, big plus! This class was truly a memory we will carry with us for years. Thanks Chef Malik!

Chef Malik was amazing! He took us through the meal giving different options and allowing us to really be hands on. The meal was great and we would definitely book him again!!!

Chef Malik was very personable! He obviously enjoys his craft. Chef Malik is very knowledgeable and my sister and I learned a lot about the food we prepared and the safe preparation of the food. I provided a tip to Chef Malik that evening hence no tip is selected on this survey. I would recommend others to give Chef Malik and Cozymeal a try.

Chef Malik is pure Baltimore. He is down to earth and knows his way around a kitchen, not to mention a spice rack. His dishes are as accessible and approachable as he is. Nothing crazy. Nothing unexpected. My impression, of him and of his food, is that the time you spend with each will go by quickly. Chef Malik doesn't hide anything and his dishes don't as well. Just don't ask him about his spice mixes. Those are not spoken about. :-)

I had Chef Malik cater my wedding for me and I was totally impressed with the service and the food was absolutely excellent. He arrived early and setup and was ready to serve as planned. His staff was professional, the serving dishes were classy, and (once more) the food was great. I know of two of my family members that used him and reported that they were just as pleased. I will surely use On Point again.

When I go into a restaurant, I have to spend at least five minutes asking questions about the menu because I am gluten and lectin sensitive. To celebrate my birthday, I decided to look for a personal chef who was willing and able to prepare a scrumptious meal for someone who was gluten and lectin sensitive. Chef Malik Anderson exceeded all my expectations. He prepared a seafood meal consisting of shrimp, scallops and crab meat, cauliflower rice, lectin reduced tomato sauce and steamed broccoli with carrots. The meal was awesome, delicious, amazing! My husband who usually does not like seafood enjoyed THIS meal! On Point Personal Chef and Catering was definitely On Point!

Choosing On Point Personal Chef was a GREAT decision. From our first communication Chef Malik was extremely responsive and very professional. He advised me of what services he provided and ask a ton of questions to make sure he could give the me outstanding service that I was looking for. On top of that we had great conversation and you immediately know that he is a good person!!!
In terms of food, I can't say enough good things. Chef Malik came to my home and cooked meals that tasted like I was in a 5 star restaurant. I'm actually looking forward to getting home tonight to eat some more. :)
I have a family of 4 and with both my wife and I working we have limited time to cook so we will be using this service going forward on a weekly basis. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY.... If you don't believe me give it a try... You will be hooked.
Lastly, and most people will want to know this..... Yes, it is very affordable. I am a Finance guy, and while my family and I live a comfortable life I look at every dime spent. When I looked at the numbers of what I was spending on groceries, daily lunch, and eating out I'm actually now saving money by using this service. Win/Win!!!!
Thanks so much Chef Malik, you have just saved me time, money and also made my wife very happy... :)

What can I begin to say about Chef Malik and his business? From start to finish, his service was superb, professional, and on-time.
I had a private dinner party for my boyfriend and invited our friends over. Chef Malik and his assistant arrived before the time he stated, set up the food preparation, and started the cooking well before my guests arrived. He and his assistant were prepared, clean, and professional at all times. The menu was a four-course menu:
1) curry chicken cucumber cups
2) Caesar salad with homemade croutons
3) Stuffed flounder with crab and imperial on top; roasted red potatoes; asparagus
4) homemade rice pudding
He gave me the option to purchase the food needed. He sent me two emails - the first email to confirm what we discussed from menu to service and the second email was the shopping list.
He served my guests and clean the kitchen afterward. Any leftover ingredients, they put in storage bags and put in my refrigerator.
I HIGHLY recommend Chef Malik and his business for any culinary needs- private dinner, large events, personal delivery and whatever else involving food service and consumption. I WILL definitely be using his business again.
With over 15 years of professional experience in the culinary industry, Chef Malik is no stranger to receiving rave reviews praising everything from his food to his friendliness and hospitality. Chef Malik is a certified chef with the American Culinary Federation and a member in great standing with the American Personal and Private Chef Association. Now, he is teaching incredible cooking classes that you won’t want to miss!
