Cozymeal guest reviews for this experience

Let me start off by saying that Chef Chericia is an amazing "person." She walked into my home smiling and ready to give me and my guest a personal experience that we could not wait to have! As "Chef Chericia," we received professionalism, enthusiasm, knowledge (because we asked a lot of questions about her journey of becoming a chef), and a very personable demeanor. My guest and I Fell.In.Love with her style of cooking. We selected the Surf and Turf meal and it was to die for! The steak was juicy with a light crust from her rub. The ingredients used were VERY flavorful. Her Risotto was authentically made as not everyone has the patience or know-how to make this and she nailed it! Our dessert was an orange/spice cake (like a pound cake), and I melted inside.! SUPER happy with Chef Chericia and would highly recommend her. If you skip over her, you are skipping over excellence! THANK YOU for such a wonderful experience!

Thank you Chef Cher for such a wonderful experience! Our team has NOT stopped talking about how much fun we had (and how DELICIOUS the food was). They are eager to make the recipes for their families. We will definitely be referring you to our Washington/Rockville Otsuka colleagues. :)
