Cozymeal guest reviews for other experiences with Chef Jordan W.

Great class with tasty food! Chef Jordan is very knowledgable and friendly. The class is in his home, which was welcoming and inviting. Just a word of advice: Definitely take the larger of your vehicles as he is up in the mountains (beautiful area). But all in all, would recommend!

Despite the glowing reviews, our night with Chef Jordan was a little disappointing. We weren’t offered any crudités with hummus as shown in the menu, and we’d have been a lot happier if we’d been able to help more with the cooking. He showed us how to chop the vegetables and then left us to do it rather than correct our errors, and we helped with the pasta machine, but we weren’t involved at all in the desert, which wasn’t even the same desert that was advertised. We weren’t even offered aprons, which seems basic, though from the little cooking we did, they weren’t really necessary. Chef Jordan was pleasant but lacked enthusiasm. My sister remarked that it felt like we’d been invited to someone’s house for an okay dinner, but that it was obvious that the host didn’t really want us to be there. That is exactly how it felt! It’s a shame, and the food we did have was nice. It was just far, far too much money for a subpar experience.

I am not one to write reviews, especially bad ones, but I thought that it needed objective feedback. We thought of it as an opportunity to get away from the city and tried to justify the price for the experience. Don't get me wrong - definitely a nice guy and good food. But was it worth $300 for the two of us? No. He showed us how to chop and explained what he was doing as he was cooking, but nothing about the experience was "farm-to-table." We thought it was probably the season - we went when it was coldish. But if that was the case, the posting should have made that very clear. I would say I had reasonable expectations given the price and others' reviews, but I came out of the experience disappointed. It also said it would last about 3 hours, but we were done in 1.5 hours. We are thinking maybe we are just a one-off...? Anyway, if anybody asked me, I would say spend your money elsewhere. It wasn't worth it for us - the time and the price.

My girlfriend Molly and I took an Indian cooking class with Chef Jordan and we loved it! We weren’t sure how it would be going into someone else’s home for the class but Jordan made it super comfortable and had great energy. We learned so much about spices, prepping methods, and ways to cook it was super interesting and fun. The food was unbelievably good. Thank you Jordan for welcoming us into your home and teaching/feeding us! 10/10 would recommend!

My wife and I had a fantastic time with Jordan - he taught us a few Indian dishes (all delicious) and we had leftovers afterwards... we had leftover tandoori sauce and are making tandoori chicken with it tonight. Would definitely recommend Jordan to anyone considering his class

Our family had such a great evening with Chef Jordan. He totally opened our eyes to a more healthful approach to cooking. Although we were all fairly proficient in the kitchen, he taught us better food prep and cooking techniques and introduced us to new ingredients that we are excited to add to our regular repertoire. Thanks, Jordan!

Jordan was a fantastic chef and host! The cozy environment, vegan cuisine, and interactive experience was a great birthday surprise for my girlfriend. Highly recommend for those even mildly interested in cooking, plant-based foods, and learning new things— all three courses were easy enough to make at home and extremely delicious. He even packed us all the leftovers!

Jordan was an incredible host! He created such a great evening for my girlfriend and I. The food was amazing too!
23 Feb 2022
This was truly an amazing experience. My partner and I were lucky enough to have Jordan all to ourselves for our cooking class. We used all fresh ingredients and he showed us how easy it was to make a healthy flavorful meal. His welcoming attitude made us feel like we were right at home making our fresh pasta. The class experience was educational but most of all so much fun. We really enjoyed our time and look forward to learning other cuisines from Jordan

We very much enjoyed our experience with Jordan. I will be booking another event with him for sure.

We had a fabulous time with Chef Jordan. We had a hiccup on our end with logistics and he was more than accommodating. He is not just an amazing chef, he is truly an outstanding person. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about all aspects of food and preparation, especially sustainable cooking, which is exactly what we were looking for. We learned an abundance of information that we will be taking home and incorporating into our family meals. The environment was warm and welcoming and made the afternoon that much more enjoyable. I highly recommend for anyone!

Chef Jordan and his partner Mary we’re so welcoming into their home for our last minute booking on Christmas Eve!! Chef Jordan was amazing and explained everything very well. We felt so comfortable and the food was absolutely amazing! His home is about an hour away from the San Diego but the drive is beautiful! Thank you so much!!

Our experience with Chef Jordan was amazing! From the food to the ambiance he has created an environment where you instantly feel at home and become inspired to get back in the kitchen. The food (grilling class) was so delicious and a great way to bond with family and friends as you prepare the courses together. We booked the class as a Christmas gift to each other and will definitely do it again in the future! You won’t be disappointed :)
13 Dec 2021
Jordan put together an incredible experience! In addition to cooking a meal I would be hard-pressed to find in the best restaurants in San Diego, he showcased his knowledge of the ingredients and friendly personality to make it a fantastic night. I would definitely work with him again!

We had such a lovely time at Chef Jordan’s cooking class! Chef Jordan is knowledgeable, warm, and inviting. The food was fresh and professionally made and my boyfriend and I enjoyed getting to learn new cooking skills. In particular, we loved Chef Jordan’s new twist on a Caprese salad!

We had such a great time! Chef Jordan was amazing. He was so patient and engaged everyone. He answered all our questions and was very skilled at herding the cats and keeping us on track, all while teaching us how to make delicious food. I highly recommend Chef Jordan and Cozymeal for your next event with a team or friends.

We had a great time at our Farm-to-Table BBQ Feast with Chef Jordan. He has a beautiful place up in the mountains that added to the ambience. Our family had a lovely meal that we helped prepare and it was delicious. Learned some fun new skills and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Jordan was a lovely addition to our weekend - we hired him for a fancy bachelorette dinner and he certainly delivered! The menu was Hawaiian and he surprised us with delicious, healthy, flavorful options. He cleaned everything up so well it's almost like he was never there. And, we got leftovers! Really loved Jordan and hope to hire him again!

Such a fun experience! I bought the Thai Cuisine Fundamentals class with Chef Jordan as a birthday gift for a good friend. We had an wonderful time cooking with Chef Jordan, who was super easy going and a great teacher. We learned some great cooking techniques and best of all the food was AMAZING! He walked us through what seemed like very complicated recipes and made them very approachable – we’ll definitely be making them on our own. I would definitely recommend taking this awesome class.
23 May 2021
My girlfriend and I took Chef Jordan’s healthy vegan taco class at his beautiful home in Julian and it was an amazing time. Chef Jordan is very knowledgeable, engaging, and just downright pleasant to be around. I walked away with new tricks to build upon in my relatively new venture in plant based cooking. I would highly recommend Chef Jordan to anyone looking to cook a plant based diet or to anyone just looking to hone their skills in the kitchen!
21 May 2021
We had a great experience with Chef Jordan. We planned this as a Mother’s Day gift and had a blast. Chef Jordan gives some excellent tips and makes for a great learning experience. Highly recommend. Thank you.
09 May 2021
Chef Jordan made Mother’s Day perfect for me and my two kids. His house is in a beautiful location and the food was absolutely delicious. He had everything prepared for us to get to work. My kids loved the hands-on work and the Chef was happy to explore any and all of their questions - many well outside of the menu - with expertise and a kind manner. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
02 May 2021
Jordan was a wonderful host! The location, the meal and the lesson were phenomenal! Jordan has a great culinary philosophy and great energy!
