Work alongside your colleagues to craft Spanish favorites with Chef Joseph.

Join in some friendly competition with your team as you try your hand at a menu madrileño. Under Chef Joseph’s watchful eye, you will create four favorite dishes he discovered while working in Madrid. This class will encourage your team to focus on kitchen safety, classic cooking techniques and inspiration from local flavors. The group will begin preparing goat cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon, learn to sear cod saffron and create a classic cream sauce. Of course, no Spanish cooking class would be complete without creating a traditional seafood paella, your meal with then be capped off with a port affogato.

Chef Joseph’s culinary character leans toward the Spanish as he honed his cooking skills in Madrid. Armed with this knowledge, he draws inspiration from local Seattle ingredients to fuse with traditional recipes. By combining local proteins and Mediterranean flair, he aims to bring sophistication and fun into his hands-on classes.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

We had a great class with Chef Joe! Everyone got something out of it, whether they cook regularly or not at all. Chef Joe was very personable and friendly and took time to explain why each step in the recipes is important to the overall dishes we prepared. Everything was delicious. The kitchen space is in a great location and was nicely appointed.

We signed us up for CozyMeal a few weeks ago. The class was fantastic and we had a personal cooking experience with Chef Joseph. We learned to prepare some delicious Spanish food (the class we took was the Taste of Madrid). The overall experience was amazing, the chef was very warm and personable, and it gave me and my friends an opportunity to do something besides eat out!

I spent years working with great chefs from all over the US and Madrid, from restaurants, to hotels, to private clubs and everything in between. In 2014, I started my own business and in 2015 was voted #1 Seattle Personal Chef and one of the Top 5 Best Seattle Wedding Caterers. I then expanded my services from weekly meals to catering and cooking classes. In addition to my culinary work, helping local non-profits like RMHC Seattle, Orphans Africa, and Coats for Kids is another focus of mine.
