What People Say About Cooking Classes on Cozymeal


@g0lfer18

William B., Washington, DC

"Our Cozymeal experience was convenient, cost-effective, and comfortable. Chef CC brought everything we needed and taught us some really helpful skills that we still use to this day, like how to properly use a chef’s knife. And to top it all off, the food was delicious and we have made that paella several times since!"
@frenchpressedkitchen

Andrea S., Washington, DC

"We loved our in home cooking experience with Cozymeal! Our chef was knowledgeable, courteous and fun - we had a lovely time cooking and learned great tips about making hibachi and sushi at home, so much so that we will definitely recreate the meal again. The food was so great, too - we feasted with our chef and then had leftovers which we enjoyed so much!"
@food_ruchi

Suruchi S., Philadelphia, PA

"My boyfriend and I were looking for a nice evening to celebrate our anniversary and Cozymeal gave us just that. Chef David is an excellent chef and teacher! While guiding us through different cooking techniques he also gave his fun insights on the history of Italian cuisine, from his perspective. "
@jeperez87

Jelivet P., Miami, FL

"The Cozymeal experience was a birthday gift for my husband, who is the main cook in our home. He has been developing his skills in the kitchen as a hobby and cooking is something he loves to do for our little family. Working alongside Chef Lorenzo in Miami was not only informative but also so much fun! The best part? Sitting down to eat the meal!"

Cooking Classes FAQs


Where can I take a cooking class near me?

Cooking classes are widely available in cities across the U.S. and Canada, leaving you with plenty of options for when and where you can learn to cook. Whether you live in New York City, Miami, Los Angeles, Toronto or somewhere in between, you'll find professional-led classes in your area to help elevate your kitchen game. You can even take cooking classes online!

How much do cooking classes cost?

Cooking classes vary in price depending on length, group size and cost of ingredients. Typically, classes will range from $75-$135 per person. Most online cooking classes are less expensive, given that you provide your own kitchen and equipment. Interactive online cooking classes hosted through Zoom range from $29-$39 per device.

How long are cooking classes?

Most in-person cooking classes are between two and three hours long, depending on the menu. Interactive online cooking classes are 75 minutes long.

How do you learn to cook like a chef?

If you want to learn to cook like the chef, a chef-led cooking class is a fantastic place to start. In a class, you'll follow along with a culinary professional as they show you the tips, techniques and timing behind your favorite dishes — and some new ones you've never tried. Once you have the basics down, you can bring those skills home to your own kitchen and show off your new culinary confidence.

How do you start learning to cook?

No matter what skill you'd like to learn, the best way to start is with the basics. In the kitchen, start familiarizing yourself with how to hold a knife properly, the difference between cooking methods (like searing, roasting and sautéing) and how flavor combinations play together. Begin with an easy or familiar recipe and recreate it yourself, taking notes along the way. Like any skill, you may not nail it the first try; but practice makes perfect!
