I booked this class as a surprise for my girlfriend for our 3 year anniversary. Joey delivered above and beyond. He made the class so much fun, and we also learned a lot. The food was absolutely divine! The atmosphere was also incredible, Joey has a very nice place that felt cozy and intimate and was perfect for our setting, a kitchen that could fit the three of us comfortably and then an amazing dining room for a romantic meal after. 10/10 would recommend to anyone. This is the experience your looking for! And we left with lots of left overs!

My mom had a wonderful 63rd birthday with Chef Joey! She came home and couldn't stop talking about her experience and how amazing the food was. Most importantly, Chef Joey made her feel confident and comfortable learning new skills. Chef Joey went out of his way to accommodate my mom last minute. I am so thankful to Chef Joey for his graciousness and for giving my mom this memorable birthday. I'll be looking into booking my own session with Chef Joey with my husband!

Chef Joey only takes in a small number of students each class (2-4) and strives to help us learn proper techniques to produce the dish. My boyfriend and I showed up and we were delighted that we get to have a one-on-one experience with chef Joey. He demonstrates the techniques and cooking processes for us and then actually makes us do them ourselves. I like this as it make us learn how to make the dish ourselves. The squid ink risotto with seared scallops that we made was absolutely delicious and delightful to make. I highly recommend him as a cooking teacher.

We had a great time cooking with Chef Joey! The food was delicious, he took his time teaching us and made us do the work (which is why we were there!), and the conversation was great all night. My wife and I had a great time. I imagine it would be a lot of fun with 4-6 people, but he was a great third wheel on our birthday date!

I was totally blown away by my experience with Chef Joey. Not only is he very personable and professional, but his space is simply stunning. I love dining out at restaurants, but Joey really took it to the next level; it was more unique than any fine dining experience I've had. The menu he prepared was at once extremely elegant and incredibly delicious, peppered with unique touches and beautiful ingredients. It's worth the splurge as you'll get a much more immersive and special experience than at a restaurant!
Meet your chef
Joey learned L'Arte D'Arrangiarsi — the art of creating something from nothing — from his Italian family while living in Italy. It's his way of expressing what it means to cook by feel, instinct, and momentary inspiration. He applies this Italian philosophy to his food from various global cuisines, creating dynamic, ingredient-driven dishes for private clients in Los Angeles.
