  1. #1 Buckingham Cooking School and Catering

    (24 reviews)

    Pauline C.

    I asked Theo to teach my 19-yr old daughter, a college sophomore, some basic cooking skills since she is now cooking for herself in an on-campus apartment, but with limited appliances...a two burner stove top unit and toaster oven. Theo more than delivered and we were totally thrilled with the result! In two hours he taught my daughter how to prepare simple, yet healthy and delicious stove top grilled Mediterranean veggies, chicken & salmon, as well as how to make "comfort food" chicken noodle soup from stock! He was patient, encouraging, witty and kind. His method of modeling the skill first and then coaching alongside was top notch. My daughter walked away feeling much more confident and excited to try out her new skills on her own! We HIGHLY recommend Theo for any and all cooking needs! Thank you, Theo!!

  2. #2 Aline Healthy Chef

    (21 reviews)

    Augustine L.

    We had 3 deliveries so far. We have 4 guys at our office and we usually eat 2 meals per day 6 days a week. Food is much healthier than the post mates deliveries we used to get. Mostly meat and vegetables. Also Aline makes a mean salmon dish. One of our main concerns was portion size since we tend to eat a lot. Luckily we have always ended up with a little bit left over each week. Highly recommend.

    Lisa M.

    Chef Vanna Mori teaches her students with professionalism and passion. Her expert presentation and patience in showing me how to create several delicious recipes (Tuna Pate, Spinach, Risotto, and Chicken Marsala) made my overall experience truly enjoyable. Chef uses healthy ingredients to cook resulting in magnificent tasting food. I will return to learn from her again without a doubt! Thank you Chef!

    Hai T.

    We had a lot of fun learning cooking with Lynn. Our first lesson includes a salad, baked salmon with corn relish, and lemon yogurt mousse. The dishes were delicious, and we look forward to our next lesson with her. Lynn is also very prompt in her communication, which makes it easy to schedule lessons.

  10. #10 Learn to cook and speak in Italian!

    (2 reviews)

    Danny L.

    Marcello is extraordinary. I had my first lesson last week where I learned how to make an amazing, fresh sauce with zucchini, onions, mushrooms, and a little bit of olive oil. I didn't know I can make something so delicious yet so simple. Marcello really took the time to teach me the details of proper knife techniques, picking fresh ingredients, and proper cooking mechanics. I learnt so much in my first lesson, and I can't wait to have another lesson with him. Also, you get a lesson in Italian while you're at. This guy is great!
