ABOUT US

What People Have Been Saying

Sarah Madey

My wife and I just completed a Hungarian cooking class and LOVED it! From the point of purchase to the final taste test of the dish we made with Chef Aggie, the experience was top notch. The Kitchen Assistant was so nice and accessible, and ensured that we were ready in advance of the actual cooking session. She helped us located hard-to-find spices in our hometown and checked in before and after. I can't recommend this enough - we hope to take another class down the road!

Jennifer Duffy

Chef Lucia was SO fun and easy to work with! I took the 'arroz con pollo' class and not only was the meal one of the best I have ever had, it was also easy to follow. I felt like I was cooking with a good friend because she was so personable. I still can't believe I made that dish in my own kitchen. It was much better than paying for a plate at a fancy restaurant because she taught me how to make it forever, AND she taught me little cooking tricks and techniques along the way!

Jackie Renick

My husband I just finished a Thai cooking class with Chef Joy. We were blown away by our experience. Chef Joy is incredibly talented, and we feel so lucky to have cooked alongside of her tonight. She was personable, patient, knowledgeable and made our virtual cooking class one to remember! And the dishes we made were delicious! Thank you so much, Chef Joy!
