Chef Landi was absolutely wonderful. He was kind and patient and worked with us (both of which were inexperienced beginners). We learned very practical skills such as chopping, making sauces, and best pairings for certain food items. Chef Landi makes his guests feel right at home. Although we were with another couple we didn't know, Chef Landi did a great job of involving us both in activities and it ended up being a wonderful night! The food was also amazing!

We'll be cooking all of the and will be back for more lessons!! Thank you.

We would absolutely recommend! Hopefully all other CozyMeal chefs are as good, because we plan on visiting some others! Wonderful experience!
27 Sep 2022
I have 0 cooking skills or experience and really enjoyed my evening with Chef Landi. He gave some basic tips and suggestions for chopping vegetables, sautéing, some best practices when preparing pasta and sauces and was really kind and patient with our small group. The meal we prepared was delicious and I definitely feel empowered to (poorly) attempt these dishes again at home ?. Chef Landi was a very gracious host with a great apartment, to boot. I felt very comfortable being in his space. My girlfriend and I shared the experience with another couple we did not know beforehand, but just by virtue of the small and intimate space, we were fast friends for the evening. I definitely reccomend this experience to anyone who wants to plan a fun date night or celebrate with family and friends. Thanks again, Chef Landi!

He was engaging and warm and was not intimidating as you may expect. His personality set the stage for fun and laughter. His ability to create a relaxing and engaging environment gave me the knowledge to go home and make this fabulous dinner for my friends.

This was our first experience with Chef Landi. We will certainly be back

Chef Landi is not only a skilled chef but also a talented teacher who is remarkably knowledgeable about cooking and curious about the world around him. He's personable and welcoming and was happy to answer all the questions had about different techniques or about what we were making! It's not hard to see that he loves what he does, and it's easy to leave his class with a shared enthusiasm for food and learning, not to mention a few new recipes to spice up your culinary repertoire.

Chef Landi is incredible! He was so kind and so enthusiastic throughout the entire experience. It was a very intimate, personal instruction on a meal that you get to eat as well. Best meal I’ve ever had! He was accommodating to allergy needs (reach out to him ahead of time, but he will be no matter what). Overall an absolutely amazing experience and I recommend to anyone visiting or that even lives in Philly! 10/10!
17 Feb 2022
My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time with Chef Landi this afternoon for our anniversary. Our experience started on time, and Chef Landi had everything prepared beforehand -- he even made his own tomato sauce, pesto, and stock for us to incorporate into our meals. Chef Landi is extremely conversational, and makes all individuals regardless of their past cooking experience feel very comfortable. He teaches technique, provides practical tips, and shares stories about his life experiences and from cooking with Cozymeal. We really appreciated Chef Landi's attention to maintaining a COVID-19-friendly environment that was extremely clean, masked, and socially-distanced. He also encouraged photos for those that like to snap away. Overall, 10/10 experience and will definitely be coming back (maybe with some friends) to try another menu. PS -- the creme brulee was to die for.
16 Feb 2022
Fun class chef Landi is very knowledgeable and helpful. My wife and I had a blast. He accommodated on the fly even when my wife couldn't have certain things. Never complained just made the change a real chef only does that. Very nice and humble man and I wish him all the best.
13 Feb 2022
We had a great time with Chef Landi, very easy to talk with, the food was exquisite, and getting to prepare the food with him was a delightful experience. The tiramisu was definitely our favorite part of the experience!

Chef Landi was fantastic! Very knowledgeable of not only the food, but the traditions and reasons behind it. Chef Landi took the time to let us try to do everything so we could learn and do it at home. He was extremely friendly and shared a lot of great stories with us from his time in Italy and abroad. I would recommend Chef Landi to anyone!
02 Feb 2022
Chef Landi is the best! My boyfriend and I are beginner-level cooks but Chef Landi instantly made us feel comfortable and confident that we’d successfully make all three courses.

One word to describe this experience.. AMAZING! My husband and I wanted to do something special to celebrate our anniversary and decided to do the seafood pasta cooking class. This was one of the greatest experiences we've had. Chef Landi made us feel right at home and the food was incredible. He is an amazing cook and gave us so many great tips that we are going to use in our kitchen! He is also full of great stories and makes great conversation. You will not be disappointed. Could not have asked for anything more!

07 Oct 2021
Myself and 3 friends were looking for an awesome, out of the box cooking experience and Chef Landi delivered all that and more. He was extremely welcoming to us and made us feel comfortable right away. We learned so many helpful tips that we will take with us into our own kitchens, and he even had printed out recipes of all the food we made ready for us to take with. On top of it all, the food we made (creme brûlée, caprese salad, and gnocchi Bolognase) was some of the BEST food we’ve ever had. We would highly recommend Chef Landi and would absolutely go back to cook with him again. Thanks Chef Landi for an awesome night!

07 Feb 2021
Great food and better company! My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with a Cozy Meal Reservation and words can't explain how much I enjoyed the experience! Chef Landi provided an amazing step by step lesson to create the dish that was easy, informative and fun. The experience as a whole was intimate, intentional and a 10/10 experience I would recommend to everyone I know ( which I already am ). We enjoyed the food, which was delicious, but what brought it over the top was Landi's energy and personality that was such a pleasure to be around! This is a must!! We plan on scheduling another :)
30 Jan 2021
Amazing dinner, and Chef Landi was wonderful. Would highly recommend!

One of the best cooking classes in the Philadelphia region! Took the gnocchi cooking class and the food was unbelievable! Chef Landi is very knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming! We had a blast and great experience for a date night out during the pandemic and felt very safe. Can’t wait to take another class. Would highly recommend Chef Landi to all!
30 Dec 2020
We had such a wonderful night with Chef Landi! He gave us great cooking tips, had us be involved in every step of the cooking process, and the food was superb. He even printed out the recipes for us to take home and try. Not to mention how lovely his company was - such a joy to just chat with him and hear his life stories. I also would like to point out that he made every effort to conduct his class safely during this pandemic; everything was clean, masks were worn, distance was kept. Highly recommend Chef Landi’s cooking classes!!
20 Nov 2020
Chef Landi was a delight! He was very careful to follow any and all safety precautions during our visit and made us feel right at home. The way he intertwined the cooking instruction with his own life experience with food made it all the more enjoyable. And to top it off the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend this experience to everyone.
15 Nov 2020
I booked this evening for my boyfriend birthday because we both love to cook and love to learn new things in the kitchen. The experience was more than expected and I have to thank Chef Landi for that. He made the night so much fun and so personal. By the end of the evening it felt like we were chatting with an extended family member! I would highly recommend a class with Chef Landi if you’re looking for a special evening!

It was an amazing experience! Chef Landi was so personable and the food was delicious. Not only was it fun and interactive, it was educational. It was great getting to ask him questions about cooking but to also learn skills. I would recommend Cozymeal to anyone, especially Chef Landi.
27 Jul 2020
We had an amazing experience. Chef Landi was fun and personable and we learned a lot while also enjoying great food.
26 Jul 2020
So much experience in life and in the kitchen. A chef came to our house but by the end we were saying goodbye to a long time friend. Detailed in every step and accommodating to the various skill levels in our group session. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed this.
25 Feb 2020
The experience my father and I had with chef Landi was amazing and well above and beyond expectations! We were immediately made to feel welcome by our gracious host. After some brief introductions and conversation about our level of cooking experience we got started. Chef Landi shared instruction, tips and tricks with us as well as some culinary history along the way. He included touching stories of some of his experiences throughout his culinary career. The food we prepared and cooked was amazing and it brought our culinary skills to the next level. As an experienced home cook, I was concerned that the we may not gain much in the way of knowledge, but I was mistaken. I'm so happy we had this experience and I can't wait to go back. Saluti!
14 Feb 2020
This was my first time doing a cooking class. Was the most amazing experience ever. A Christmas gift for my husband and I can’t wait to do it again! Chef Landi was soooo knowledgeable and professional!! The dishes we made we fantastic! Highly recommend!!! Couldn’t wait to try these dishes at home :)
14 Feb 2020
Just delightful in every sense. This was a surprise to my wife who is aspiring to be a chef and leave her software skills behind. Chef Landi did not just host us for a delicious experience but was humble enough to give a true insight of culinary industry and what to expect in that career. He walked us through the stories of his beginnings in Italy, Canada and how he fulfilled his destiny as a top chef. Coming back to the class, chef Landi has a style for teaching culinary where he pairs his instructions with a metaphor which makes it easy to pick things. It was very hands-on right from knife skills, chopping to making dough to detailed techniques of using pasta machine. Learning how to decide on ingredients & pairing them for making sauce was very worthful. And finally, watching chef make creme brulee from scratch, and providing intricate details of the procedure gave us a totally different perspective on how to approach it. All in all this experience gave us a lot more than we had expected and will be marked as a memorable moment of our lives. Thanks a lot Chef Landi and we hope to see you soon for another memorable conversation.
26 Jan 2020
Great experience. He made it easy to learn and explained everything in a way you could understand even if you don't cook. Very kind and welcoming. Makes you feel very comfortable. I will definitely book another meeting with him !

30 Dec 2019
We had a wonderful experience with Chef Landi! He was very professional, knowledgeable and engaging! Cooking is something my husband and I like to do together, and we both feel excited to have new meals to add to our repertoire! The only downside is now I have to get new attachments for our kitchen aid...lol. Thank you Chef Landi for an amazing experience neither of us will forget! Hopefully we will see you in future classes!
18 Dec 2019
Had an absolutely fabulous time with Chef Landi. He is extremely knowledgable and extremely social. The food was amazing and the instruction was easy, very thourough but more than that we had a lot of fun. I cannot praise this experience and look forward to having another class with him.
25 Oct 2019
Chef Landi was a wonderful host. He was a genuine, kind person and made the evening very enjoyable. I would hope that Cozy Meal compensates these chefs appropriately. I feel $85 apiece was a lot of money for the night and that a tip was not necessary.
17 Jul 2019
We had an amazing experience with Chef Landi! He was very knowledgeable about cooking and food in general. The food was absolutely amazing too! I highly recommend Chef Landi!
09 Jun 2019
Chef Landi immediately made us feel at home when we arrived at his place for our Italian seafood fare class. He had the recipes prepared for us with each course so that we could follow along and take the recipes home with us to recreate. He also encouraged us to get involved in each step of the cooking process if we were willing ☺️He sprinkled in tips and tricks as he went along, and included stories about his life experiences in Albania and Philadelphia. We loved every single course as it was perfectly seasoned and you could tell truly made with love. Highly recommend this experience!
28 Apr 2019
We had so much fun with Chef Landi! Really enjoyed the experience. Definitely recommend!

Cooking with Chef Landi was an incredibly personal experience. He made every effort to ensure we were getting what we wanted out of our cooking class. Beyond the dishes, Chef Landi shared about his fascinating life and philosophy of why he cooks. I could not have asked for a better experience.
25 Feb 2019
Drawing on his Albanian heritage, Chef Landi cooks food that is influenced by the many cultures present in that region of the world. His food is beautiful to look at and even better tasting. He has a very warm and engaging soul that comes through in his food. Highly recommended!
