Private Cooking Lessons

Chef Ricardo makes you feel very relaxed in the kitchen. He is very meticulous with the ingredients he cooks with, particularly red/white wine vinegars & cooking wine. He will teach you how to incorporate these ingredients to make tasty sauces and gravies. I am very satisfied and happy that I met Chef Ricardo to teach me how to cook in the convenience in my home.

Personal Chef

Chef Ricardo was absolutely awesome!! He was so personable, I felt as if I knew him before we even met. He arrived at our home and worked his magic! Our meal was magnificent and his presentation and attentive to detail were hands down, a ten! He made our 28th anniversary so much more special! Thank you, Ricardo!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
