For the main course, teammates will learn the recipe for classic chicken marsala served with broccolini almandine gremolata and a choice of rice pilaf or angel hair pasta. For dessert, teammates will make crunchy almond biscotti with gelato for a complete Italian culinary experience.

This review is a year late in the making but we really wanted to make sure everyone knows Tanya is a fantastic chef and teacher. She was very personable and knowledgeable. My wife and I had a great time making gnochi's together. We were stuffed and had several meals' worth of delicious leftovers. A memorable experience and meal!

Thank you Tanya for the wonderful night. My wife and I had a great experience. We learned many new cooking tricks, tips, and techniques, and had a really fun time. All the food was delicious and we look forward to cooking the recipes ourselves in the future. Thank you also for leaving our kitchen more clean than it was before you arrived.

Chef Tanya was incredible. My sales team had a long day together, going through sales activities and exercises, so they were ready to let loose and have fun. Tanya's energy, engagement and her playful nature was contagious and well received. We really enjoyed ourselves and the food was outstanding.
Not to mention, the location and atmosphere was spectacular. Thanks for an wonderful evening!

So for starters she was AMAZING! I’m so glad I picked her! Chef Tanya contact with me prior to the class. She was on time, clean, so much fun and still professional at the same time! Her customer service was out of this world! I loved that she came with vegan and healthier options because I’m the clean eater and my boyfriend not so much. We learned a lot from her in this class! It’s such a great experience because we all know how to cook for ourselves but it’s great to learn how to cook for others and she taught us that! Chef Tanya is amazing! I can’t wait to book her again!

Chef Tanya gave us an incredible and memorable experience. She's personable, energetic, patient, and very interesting! I would absolutely recommend Tanya, she has an impressive work history and has widespread culinary knowledge and a passion to share that with her hosts!
07 Apr 2019
Chef Tanya was fantastic. She was on time, prepared, is a great teacher with an engaging personality... and best of all the food was amazing. She did just the right amount of work to make each course fun but give us the sense that we could to this ourselves. We has a group of 7, ranging in age from 16 to 56 and she had everyone engaged and enjoying themselves. We did this in our kitchen and she fit right in, and was instantly comfortable, even when there was a tool or utensil that we didn't have. I would definitely do this again and highly recommend Chef Tanya.
06 Apr 2019
Chef Tanya was fantastic, she was super personable and made some amazing food. She showed us how to do everything and let us participate as much or as little as we wanted. She even left the kitchen cleaner than when she got there! We had a great time for my mom's birthday and I would definitely recommend Chef Tanya to anyone.

Amazing experience! Delicious food! Tanya is great :)
04 Mar 2019
It was lovely to have Chef Tanya in our home and the food was delicious. She had lots of little tidbits about cooking technique to teach us, and gave us enough experience to attempt to repeat the recipe we learned on our own. It was good hands-on experience, and we had lots of leftovers to enjoy the following days.
30 Dec 2018

25 Nov 2018
I booked her class for my boyfriend’s birthday, and her class was a success. Tanya brought everything we need for the class, and was flexible with my request, which was making a surprise birthday cake for him. Her class was fun and informative, giving us a lot of helpful advice, and she left the leftovers from the cooking class. I would definitely recommend her class to everyone, and we would love to book her class again!!

Chef Tanya knows her food and knows how to cook it. She was incredibly professional and warm, knowledgable and kind. To go into someone else's kitchen is never easy and she made our kitchen feel like her own. My daughter (who gave this experience to me as bday gift) and I not only learned how to make amazing Mexican food, we also learned many cooking tricks from Chef Tanya. Her presentation of the food we cooked was gorgeous and she cleaned up as if she was never there! I highly rec Chef Tanya for her award-winning style, her cuisine and her wonderful personality! I can't wait to give this gift to one of my friends.

28 Apr 2018
We had the BEST time during our cooking class with Chef Tanya! She is incredibly professional and personable. We were in Boston for a vacation and staying in an Airbnb with a VERY small kitchen. Tanya was super accommodating and even brought a table for us to work on/eat on as we had extremely limited counter/work space. Having Chef Tanya come into our "home" was like having a friend in the kitchen with us. We were all laughing, telling stories and having a great time while learning some very useful/fun cooking techniques and recipes! The class and menu were great because we can confidently recreate them at home or add our own spin to them. I would highly recommend this class to cooks of any skill/experience level. I would also enthusiastically recommend Chef Tanya for any class and hope we may be able to use her services again!
19 Apr 2018

30 Aug 2017
Our cooking lesson with Tanya was so much fun! She is bubbly, very knowledgable, and a great teacher. She brought all of the ingredients and equipment PLUS some fun decorations to help celebrate my birthday. We especially appreciated that she took into account some dietary restrictions and brought ingredient replacements just in case. We highly recommend taking a class with Tanya and hope to do another one again soon!
25 Aug 2017
Chef Tanya is a great teacher! She knew just what to say and how to say it to keep meal prep on track with a 12 year old sous chef assisting. The meal was so much more than one might expect when selecting Coconut Shrimp Tacos. Her salsas, sauces and accompanying dishes were an artful blend of complementary flavors. What a treat! We will have her back again.
15 Aug 2017
Thank you Chef Tanya for a really wonderful night! We had a multi-generational birthday gathering and it couldn't have been a better way to celebrate. The food was incredible, along with the instruction and Tanya has a unique way to make everyone comfortable. I would highly recommend this Cozymeal experience and in particular Chef Tanya!
01 Aug 2017
Had a date night at home with Chef Tanya - Chicken Marsala Dinner for Two. She is very professional but also easy going at the same time so that you feel completely comfortable with her in your home. She was there for almost 5 hours and she even cleaned up, which we did not expect at all. We all really vibed and learned some good technique for everyday cooking that we have already used. I loved her passion for Italian cooking and her story. We will be calling her again...next time maybe for a girls night dining in!
23 Jul 2017
Really a great experience! There are too many good things to say about our (my girlfriend's and my) experience with chef Tanya during my girlfriend's birthday so I will try and break it down into parts so that I don't ramble on forever!
Food prep and cooking was a lot of fun as well as delicious! Chef Tanya's knowledge and experience showed through food prep demonstrations and the history behind some of the food names and techniques we covered. We came away from the experience having a fun time and learning a lot of useful things while we were at it! She also did a great job telling us where to find certain ingredients and tools as she was working with them so we could remake everything on our own without any problems in the future.
Even while working on many tasks at once, Chef Tanya made sure to never leave any mess around. She washed everything she used, cleaned all the counter tops, and swept the floors when we were through with it all until our kitchen ended up being cleaner than when she came over!
Chef Tanya went above and beyond in everything she did. In addition to everything mentioned above, she made sure to stay well over the time she needed to (after making sure it was alright with us first, of course) in order to finish cleaning and preparing everything with us. All in all, It's hard to list everything that we enjoyed and appreciated about this experience with Chef Tanya, but no expense was spared in making sure it was a wonderful birthday evening. It even came down to something as simple as bringing an adult coloring book that we could color in if we ever got bored or tired from all the cooking, or wrapping a chair in her own birthday ribbons to help us celebrate!
Definitely would not hesitate to book another session with Chef Tanya when we want to try another course!

We had a fun, delicious evening with Chef Tanya. She did a great job and we all enjoyed the evening. A unique thing to do with a group of friends!
20 Sep 2016
Tanya is such a sweetheart, she knows what she's doing and how to explain it best to you. Getting to know her was the best part, and her chicken Marsala, was SO good, I almost licked my plate. I was so happy that I could go home and make it myself! What a treat. I would take a class from her any day.
My grandmother taught me Puerto Rican cuisine and the most important ingredient, love. I began to cook professionally at the age of 12 when we moved to New York and a neighbor offered to "keep me busy" at his Italian restaurant. I have not stopped cooking since! My passion and knowledge drive my belief that nutritious food can tantalize the pallet. By refining the art of cooking, I hope to show clients how to enjoy ethnically diverse cuisine in a healthy way.
