From beginning to end, every moment of Chef Rishika's class was phenomenal! She was so welcoming, social and easy-going. She taught the recipes with patience and showed as many tricks and methods along the way. This was our first time making pasta, pesto and cannoli from scratch. We were able to appreciate the labour that goes into fresh, high quality food. It was so wonderful to cook an amazing fine-dining, 3-course meal and eat it too in a relaxed environment. I I booked this experience as a birthday gift for my husband. She made sure the night was extra special for him. This experience exceeded our expectations. We're glad we booked with Chef Rishika!

This was our first experience with Cozymeal, and we absolutely loved Chef Rishika! She was extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home. We really appreciated her knowledge, expertise and advice on how to replicate the recipes at home. The food was delicious, and we will certainly be looking at other experiences!
