This was my first formal cooking class, I’m glad I chose the right person to help me brush up my skills. Melissa was very professional, informative and flexible. She definitely showed me new things I thought I was familiar with. She asked about specific recipes that my husband and I like or dislike. She offered some recipes as well. The food was delicious! She even gave wine pairing suggestions. I would definitely recommend Melissa! I will certainly be returning and would love to bring some friends along.

About

I don't really know what my competitors do, but I do know how I conduct my classes, they are all hands on, ONE ON ONE hands on approach, from start to finish, I ask all my students to ask as many questions as possible if they don't understand it we go back and do it again, I take time to understand the clients requests, for example some ask for gluten free, vegan, and other means of cooking with healthier ingredients, so I build a culinary program for each individual around what there needs might be the smile on a students face when they finish there first cooking lesson, most say did I really just cook all that,

About

FROM SMALL AND INTIMATE DINNERS TO LARGE COCKTAIL PARTIES ALLOW CHEF DANGOND TO SERVE YOU AND YOUR GUESTS Andres Dangond has over 16 years of world-wide experience in the food and beverage industry. Chef Dangond has worked along side some of the best chefs in the world: Grant Achatz (‘Alinea’, 6th best restaurant in the world), Laurent Gras (L2O), both awarded with 3 Michelin Stars, and Curtis Duffy (Grace, Avenues, 2 Michelin Stars). His hard work, palate, impeccable execution and perfect balance of flavors were reflected when the Michelin guide awarded L2O its 3 Michelin stars; Chef Dangond was directly responsible for the production of sauces and many other bases at L2O during the evaluation period of the Michelin guide in Chicago, 2010. Among the many different types of techniques and cooking styles, Chef Dangond has had enormous amounts of experience with them and aims to learn and master them all; everything from rustic cooking, classic French cuisine to ‘Avant Garde’ techniques like the ones popularized by Ferran Adriá, Heston Blumenthal, Grant Achatz, Joan Roca and other culinary masters. Andrés Dangond has vast knowledge on international cuisines and a very well trained palate to execute them with flawless results. ​ “ There is complete harmony in my mouth. ” - ANTHONY BOURDAIN Commenting on Chef Dangond’s food. ​ “ Andrés Dangond is one of the best young chefs in the country. ” - JOE DECKELMEIER - NBC Universal “ The Ambassador of Colombian Cuisine in USA ” - LA BARRA Magazine " Chef Andres was fantastic. We enjoyed his innovative small plate menu and the delicious food that he created. He and his staff were attentive to our needs and helped to make our dinner party special and care-free for us and our guests. We would definitely consider using him again. " - ADAM M. Los Angeles, CA " We had Chef Dangond cook for an event at our house and I can say it was absolutely fantastic. He was extremely flexible with the menu in order to accommodate my guests dietary restrictions and worked diligently to ensure we would have the best meal possible. On the day of the event he showed up on time, was flexible with the service time and left my kitchen spotless! I definitely plan on using him again for any future events. " - RYAN H. Costa Mesa, CA " The entire experience was fantastic. Chef Andres got to our place exactly on-time, got setup quickly, dinner was served on-time as well. Everything tasted great and was exactly what we had expected. Chef Andres is a great host too. He was pleasant to talk too as well. I would STRONGLY recommend him to all my friends and to anyone thats looking for a great dining experience. " - JACK S. Beverly Hills, CA " Andres prepared and served a fabulous sit-down dinner for eight of us last night. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. He was professional, no request too small, and the food was delicious. He had to juggle last minute dietary requirements (gluten-free, vegetarian, sugar-free and lactose intolerance) and he did it skillfully and deliciously. He is very calm and quiet, and very sensitive to the guests conversations, and never interrupting to take center stage. A difficult salmon dish was served beautifully and the white chocolate soup dessert was awesome. And all this within a budget we had pre-set. I found the whole experience relaxing and worth every penny. We will definitely be using Andres again. Next time, I want to turn him loose on his native Colombian menu, and see how that goes. I'm sure it will be wonderful. Thank you, Andres, for sharing your talents with us. My guests were astonished by how easy Andres made everything seem. Good show! " - GABRIELLE D. Malibu, CA

I have years knowledge and experience in retail, fashion, fitness, communication and verbalization techniques as well as great advice on dating and relationships. For me, there is no greater feeling than helping someone feel great about themselves. I have seen so many men change their lives and become incredibly confident. Nothing is more gratifying. Also, it doesn't really feel like work to me. Everything I teach is already implemented in my daily life. I can honestly say that I love my job!

Cures From The Kitchen

New To Thumbtack

  • Newport Beach, CA 92660
  • Thumbtack Guarantee

About

I have been inspired to enlighten other people to use food as a tool in order to improve upon their condition after experiencing my own health and wellness successes through this Cooking for Cancer approach. We have to take an active role in maintaining a healthy body, and that is what I firmly believe in. We can no longer afford to relinquish the responsibility for our health to the medical industry. To preserve and keep our body healthy is our duty. We can no longer keep on poisoning our bodies with foods that are loaded with preservatives and pesticides, which is why I now offer Cooking for Cancer classes because I believe in it, especially when our health is compromised. I follow the 80/20 rule -- 80% raw and 20% cooked, as well as 80% alkaline and 20% acidic food. In my cooking classes, I provide tips and guidelines on how to formulate and maintain a satisfying and healthy diet in a creative and simple way.
