Private Cooking Lessons

Had Chef Kim over to our Airbnb for a cooking lesson and it was excellent! She was very well prepared and even gave us print out recipes to take home. She was very detailed in her instructions and the food was delicious. She even helped us clean up after the meal. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a fancy dinner party or cooking class for a small group.

Kim Newton has an amazing personality and was an excellent instructor for our cooking class. The attendees had a great time and learned to create a full course from fig, prosciutto, mascarpone, and basil crostini appetizers, to million dollar chicken with lemon pasta.

I requested a special dinner for my family to celebrate my sister's upcoming remission from leukemia and my mom's support and love through it all. Kim reached out immediately and was warm and genuine. The dinner was lovely. Kim was great in the kitchen, and we all felt very relaxed and comfortable with her cooking for us, like she was a long time friend. Her menu has great options for a delicious four course meal, and she adds beautiful personal touches from place names to a print out menu. Kim even went the extra mile to provide special gluten-free options for myself. My family was so grateful for Kim. We are recommending her to more family and friends.

Chez Vous is an absolute gem! Kim was professional and helpful from start to finish. Our meal was the perfect treat after a long day of wine tasting and shopping. She was so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend! This was a great end to our girl’s weekend in Santa Barbara.
