We had a wonderful experience for Valentines Day. The food was delicious and the experience was great.
30 Jan 2023
Tiffany was fabulous! From her on-time arrival to her clear organization and skill communicating and engaging kids, to joining us for desert and conversation all together - Tiffany is a joy and pleasure to have in your house and my daughter loved the experience.
28 Jan 2023
I ordered this experience for my 16-year old daughter. Chef Tiffany met and greatly exceeded our expectations. My daughter and her friend thoroughly enjoyed preparing the meal with Chef Tiffany and everything was delicious. This was a great experience.

Awesome experience. Chef Tiffany was professional, personable, and flexible. An absolute joy to work with!
28 Jun 2022
Chef Tiffany was exceptional. She had every single ingredient, bowls, spatulas, measuring cups, literally everything. She educated us on how to properly dice and chop without getting our fingers in the way. :) when we were done chopping one ingredient she immediately had the next one out and ready for us to chop. We always wanted to learn to make our own pasta and it was incredibly easy. We both are now going to be making our own pasta here on out. I highly suggest booking with Chef Tiffany, it was a great experience and a fun date night!

29 Oct 2021
My 9-year-old is an aspiring chef so we booked Chef Tiffany to work with him for cooking lessons. OMG, we have absolutely no regrets. She is so very amazing. Great energy, extremely patient and kind, the food was absolutely delicious, just all around an awesome experience. We'll be booking with her often and I'm even more excited then he is to do so. Chef Tiffany...you are a real rockstar!!!!
13 Oct 2021
Incredibly disappointed. I booked Chef Tiffany for my boyfriend's birthday, and mere hours before, she nonchalantly and without apology messaged me saying that she was having car trouble and wouldn't make it. Mind you, the DC Metro area is chock-full of public transportation options, which I asked if she would consider as an option, to which I received absolutely no reply from her (and still have not received a reply). All of this as I was desperately waiting to see if I'd have to make last minute reservations somewhere else. I made this reservation weeks in advance, and dropped a significant chunk of change on it, in hopes that it would be a truly special day for my boyfriend. Her cancelling at the last minute and not being willing to find another transportation option or another type of solution is terribly unprofessional; I hope this review can help others avoid this experience.
22 Jun 2021
Tiffany was awesome! Everything was perfect!

Amazing experience and with my wife being pregnant and can’t hold ANYTHING down she totally enjoyed it and tore through the leftovers the next day too! Chef Tiffany has an amazing background that she shared with us and can REALLY COOK!

24 Nov 2019
Wonderful experience! Tiffany was kind enough to adjust the menu to something both my 13-year-old (omnivore who loves meat and desserts) and I (a vegetarian) would enjoy. We both learned lots of tips for making fresh pasta and other goodies. She was very friendly and made sure to include my son in all parts of the meal prep and cooking. Highly recommend and the food tasted amazing!
02 Oct 2019
I booked Chef Tiffany for my girlfriend's birthday and she was outstanding. She was fun to be around and provided a great cooking experience. The food was delicious and she kindly shared her recipes after. We look forward to booking for a brunch with our friends!

We had a blast with Chef Tiffany! She came in with all the bowls/whisks/measuring cups/supplies and all the ingredients, walked us through making pastry and other sweets from scratch, and somehow managed to clean as she went, leaving the kitchen spotless! She’s also just very nice and has a really fun personality.

05 Jan 2019
Chef Tiffany was so sweet and an amazing teacher. My girlfriend and I had so much fun taking her brunch class. Everything turned out delicious.
17 Dec 2018
We had such a great experience! The food was easy enough to learn how to make, but also we got to learn new skills. She even cleaned throughout the experience, which was a huge bonus. Would 100% recommend!
21 Nov 2018
Chef Tiffany was FANTASTIC! Very hands on and knowledgeable. I got to do a lot of the cooking which is what I was poking to do.
18 Aug 2018
Chef Tiffany was professional, fun, and a great teacher! We definitely will be making our own dough after this class!
13 Aug 2018

Such a good experience! Chef Tiffany was on time and fully prepared. She has such a wonderful personality. The food was excellent, and she was flexible if you wanted to change anything about the recipe. Chef Tiffany kept it casual and fun. This was a great way to celebrate our anniversary. Highly recommended!
24 Apr 2018
This class was great. Chef Tiffany was accommodating to schedule adjustments, funny, knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. The time passed very fast and we were eating home made noodles and bread pudding in almost no time. There was even enough for the next day's dinner.
15 Apr 2018
Tiffany was awesome. Very personable and a great teacher. We thoroughly enjoyed having her teach us in our kitchen and are looking forward to our next time with her!!

03 Mar 2018
Had such a fun time learning from Chef Tiffany! She gave me confidence that I can cook on my own!
01 Mar 2018
Chef Tiffany is amazing. She taught me and my husband how to make a fabulous three-course Italian meal (which she had modified to be vegetarian for him!) in our kitchen, and was basically a food fairy godmother throughout the evening: whenever we reached for an ingredient, Chef Tiffany had already opened it, had a bowl at the ready, and was ready to answer any questions we had about the prep work, as well as timing out all of the prep work so well that the appetizer and main dish were ready at the same time, and the dessert was coming out of the oven as we finished eating the main course. Having Chef Tiffany in our home felt like having a very knowledgeable, patient buddy teaching us how to cook dishes that were mind-bogglingly delicious and that we felt we'd be able to replicate for our friends. Thank you!!
25 Feb 2018
Very enjoyable experience.
20 Feb 2018
Chef Tiffany was great! She was very knowledgeable and took time to explain the processes. Would definitely recommend to friends. Looking forward to booking again for brunch.
19 Feb 2018

Excellent she takes the time to explain each step and offer alternative suggestions. Love the food selection as well.
11 Feb 2018
Awesome experience. Chef Tiffany came prepared with delicious recipes and all the ingredients needed for each course, including fresh mimosas. Her welcoming personality made the afternoon of cooking a breeze and she offered plenty of cooking tips along the way.
24 Jan 2018

20 Jan 2018
Tiffany was fabulous! The food was fantastic!
16 Jan 2018
Fantastic experience, highly knowledgeable and very friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed this!
14 Jan 2018
I purchased classes as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. Didn't really know what to expect since we both never took a couples cooking class let alone have the chef come to you. However, the option to do it in my home was very convenient. I researched a lot of cooking classes and most where you had to go to them, you were cooking with other couples and assigned one dish to make out of the entire dinner course. However, for basically the same price, Cozymeal allowed the Chef to come to me and we were able to cook all of the meals. How can you beat that?! Chef Tiffany was one time and came with all the ingredients needed. She was very down to earth and friendly and made the experience an unforgettable one. She cleaned up as she went along which I wasn't expecting but was grateful for. She wiped the counters we used to cook on and the dishes. She rocks!! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
08 Jan 2018
It was so fun to have Tiffany come to our home and teach my husband and me how to cook. The food was delicious, TIffany was very friendly, and we had a lot of fun. I would do it again!
02 Jan 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed the class with Chef Tiffany. She was delightful, fun and prepared to answer our questions about techniques and ingredients. It is said that a successful class is one in which you learn one thing that you will use again - we learned at least 3 very helpful hints and would definitely make both the shrimp and pasta dish and bread pudding again. My only suggestion would be to change the first course. Although it was tasty - it was not a dish that was particularly useful for learning new things.
29 Dec 2017
Phenomenal! We had Chef Tiffany out to our home to teach two sisters, ages 9 & 13, and she is not only a fantastic chef but a lovely teacher. We are just happy to have had this experience while Tiffany is available (and not off teaching scads of kids, or hosting her own cooking show)!
28 Dec 2017
Very personable and learned a lot ! Great experience :)
27 Dec 2017
Delicious food for every course of the meal! She was very friendly and had some great tips to give for cooking this meal. I would definitely book again and recommend!
18 Nov 2017
Chef Tiffany provided exceptional service, an amazing meal, and friendly conversation. This was a great date night for my wife and I with no hassle. We can’t wait to have her back for more cooking classes.
05 Nov 2017
Patient, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. We had a great time!
17 Oct 2017
Very friendly and knowledgable, really enjoyed having Tiffany teach us some baking skills.
08 Aug 2017
A fantastic experience. The Chef was engaging and entertaining. She made our anniversary special. Thank you, Chef!
31 Jul 2017
She was a great instructor for our 4 kids! The meal was delicious and she made accommodations for food allergies and our picky kids. Really great experience over all.
09 Jun 2017
The team thoroughly enjoyed our time with Chef Tiffany and we will look for another opportunity to have a team building event with her in the future.
19 Apr 2017
This is one of the best cooking classes I have taken so far. Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a fun, educational cooking class in DC.
03 Apr 2017
Chef Tiffany was great! She was very personable and informative. My wife and I enjoyed learning how to make fresh pasta with Chef Tiffany and all the food was delicious.
01 Apr 2017
Chef Tiffany was very pleasant, and her menu was great! Will definitely use the recipes again. The in-house service was also very convenient. Good experience all the way around
14 Mar 2017
Our cooking class with Tiffany was great! Tiffany was really easy to get along with and we really enjoyed her company while learning
01 Mar 2017
Tiffany was an inspiration! Very pleasant and friendly and the recipes were fun and delicious. I'm giving this experience 4 out of 5 stars, since it would have been nice to learn a bit more about cooking (instead of just following the recipe). Perhaps a knife work lesson on how to best chop an onion (etc.). It would also be great if the chef could offer to take photos during the event (since we were doing the cooking, her hands were clean and could have captured some candid shots). I would definitely recommend this as a gift! Especially for children and families. :)
20 Feb 2017
Very great experience. Very polite and loved every moment
18 Feb 2017
Tiffany was great. And we enjoyed the meal. Well worth it and then some.
15 Feb 2017
Chef Tiffany was very pleasant and enjoyable to cook with. Unfortunately there was a 30 minute delay on starting due to traffic. I also have dietary restrictions and therefore was unable to eat the main course.
14 Feb 2017
Chef Tiffany was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and personable. Would recommend her 100 times over.
30 Jan 2017
Had a really good time with Tiffany! She was easy going, personable, and gave us great tips. A very enjoyable experience and hope to work with her again someday!
29 Jan 2017
Chef Tiffany was super friendly and easy to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would 100% recommend to others! Also, the food was all delicious!
23 Jan 2017
Tiffany was a great teacher! We learned so much from her and got some new ideas for meals to make. I would have liked to learn more knife skills, but overall a great experience.
08 Jan 2017
Tiffany was so much fun to work with. She was patient with my son and answered all of his questions. The recipes were delicious!!! Can't wait to try another one of her classes! I would highly recommend her!
07 Jan 2017
Tiffany is fun, easygoing and a great teacher. I purchased a private class for me and my boyfriend and we loved it! I would highly recommend you learn to cook with Tiffany!
02 Jan 2017
Tiffany was awesome! She is a wonderful chef and taught a ton of tricks while making pasta. I would highly recommend her!
17 Dec 2016
My friends and I attended a class in D.C. and it was a fantastic experience. We had Ratatouille that we learned to make ourselves, and we got to bake brownies and cookies which was a lot of fun. We made homemade pasta for dinner and that was my favorite part. Being an avid cook myself, I thought it was an incredible experience. There is something for everyone to learn and I highly recommend everyone take a class with them
15 Dec 2016
I attended a hands on cooking class with friends here in Washington, D.C. and it was an incredible experience. The concept behind Cozymeal is truly unique and a way to bring people together, from locals to chefs; to share new ideas and educating less experienced individuals...the passion for food was what keeps the stew sticking together. Thanks to Chef Tiffany for a great night filled with joy and amazing food!
04 Dec 2016
Chef Tiffany was incredibly friendly and helpful! My girlfriend and I had a great date night with her. She was helpful in instructing us on what to do, but let us do all the actual cooking. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed chatting with Tiffany.
20 Nov 2016
Chef Tiffany is great. She is Very Professional, great instructor and to boot the food taste good.
18 Nov 2016
Tiffany was so amazing! She was extremely nice, curteous, and very professional. She is a talented individual who cares about her craft. Give that woman a raise!
06 Nov 2016
Wonderful Chef, with excellent experience.
30 Jul 2016
We have attended chef Tiffany's class. It was a great experience. We learnt how to make Ratatouille and had it as starter, we baked some cookies and brownies together and it was so much fun. My favorite part was when we made fresh pasta from scratch. She was so patient and let us do everything over and over until we finally were able to make our own pasta. The taste was amazing and completely different from pasta you buy from stores. It motivated me to buy a pasta maker for myself! As an avid cook, I found the experience amazing. I highly recommend everyone to have this experience.
24 Jul 2016
We really enjoyed Chef Tiffany's Italian and French cooking class. This was our second Cozymeal cooking class with a group of friends that we attended and, just like the first one, we really enjoyed it. Highly recommended!
24 Jul 2016
This was a really fun Italian cooking class. We attended this class with a few other guests expecting to make pasta from scratch. Chef Tiffany did a great job showing us the process and letting us prepare the pasta ourselves (from scratch using flour and eggs). The added bonus was that the sauce, which seemed to be her own creation, also had a French touch making this really an Italian and French cooking class. The end result was very delicious! I can definitely recommend this class to anyone who is looking for a fun cooking class in the DMV area.
24 Jul 2016
Italian and French cuisines are two of my favorite cuisines and this cooking class combines both of these. We booked Chef Tiffany's French and Italian cooking class in Washington DC for a group of friends. In our case, she adjusted the menu a bit and we made the most delicious cookies to begin with. While the cookies were in the oven, we started to make our own pasta from scratch using eggs and flower. We added the shrimp sauce to the food which makes up the French part of the meal. Chef Tiffany was knowledgable and very easy to get along with. The group was a bit larger and we were also a bit noisy. Chef Tiffany knew how to roll with the group and made the overall experience very enjoyable. The end result was more than delicious.
08 Jul 2016
Chef Tiffany teaches high school kids to cook so she has learned to be clear and concise but she lets guests really get hands-on too which is great. One student is put in charge of the beurre blanc sauce, as another makes angel hair pasta. The steps were simple but sure fun and everyone had a blast. Not only that but the resulting food was awesome. From the light creamy shrimp pasta to rich gooey chocolate walnut brownies. Super delicious, super fun.
