We had the best experience with Chef Chris. We hired him to cook brunch for my fiance's 30th birthday. He was on time, professional, and made great company during the time he was at our house. But the best part was the food!! Everything he made was delicious. The meal was even more enjoyable than what we could have gotten in a restaurant for the same money. We would ask Chef Chris to cook for us again without a doubt. Thank you Chef Chris!

We had Chef Chris over to demonstrate his Seasonal Surf and Turf Menu. It was a fun experience. Chef Chris is soft spoken and kind. I enjoyed hearing about his background. His teaching style is easy going. We had a great time and will look for more classes with Cozymeal!

We picked a meal that was actually too basic for our group. Chef was pleasant and friendly. Wasn't too fond of potato soup, lacked texture and seasoning. Liked using leak tops as garnish.
