Cozymeal guest reviews for other experiences with Chef Lawrencia
05 Feb 2023
I previously booked an in-home chef experience through Cozymeal with outstanding results. This experience fell well short of expectations. 1) The chef arrived 1hr 45mins past the agreed to arrival time and did not call to advise she would be late; 2) she served the courses but did not come back to clear any dishes before serving the next course; 3) the entrée did not include the potatoes or a substitute starch; 4) the entrée dishes were still on the table when she announced her clean-up was complete and she was ready to depart – she did remove her coat and offer to plate the desert when I asked; 5) the amount of stuff spilled on the floor was alarming, but not nearly as bad as the spill over in the oven. I asked my guests for their opinions on the meal quality, comments were: the vegetables in the soup were probably fresh but undercooked and the soup base seemed to be from a can; the bread bowl was tasty but not in line with the dinner style and completely over-sized; the sauce on the entrée was too watery and the meal was bland; serving garlic bread after a huge bread bowl just didn’t make sense; the desert was good but not delicious. I would not recommend this chef for an in-home experience.

Lawrencia did a great job for our group of 6 in Chicago. The food was delicious and her teaching was top notch. I would definitely book her for future experiences!
