Chef Charley prepared a wonderful birthday meal in our kitchen. He came in and took over, setting the table, cooking and serving the courses and left the kitchen clean. Once he arrived we were able to relax and enjoy the evening. The food he prepared was delicious and artfully presented. We had a great experience.

Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!

My husband gave to me one 3-hours-class with Erika! More than a cooking class, I had the opportunity to talk and share ideas with someone that knows a lot about healthy food! That was great and exactly what I was looking for! During the class, I was able to raise all my doubts! Of course we prepared delicious recipes, but more important than this Erika shared all her knowledge! She gave me new ideas to improve my cooking and to prepare better (and delicious) food! Thank you, Erika! It was an amazing experience!

My friend and I took cooking classes from her. I can truly say that she was amazing. She taught us to make food we wanted to learn and it turned out amazing. She is a great teacher and makes it easy to apply what you learn from her and the things you learn in class to other recipes outside of what we did in class. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how to cook.

Chef Melissa taught a cooking class for myself and 4 friends. She was very fun and informed us on proper cutting technique. We had a lot of allergies/food restrictions and Melissa was very easy to work with regarding these. Her recipes were healthy and delicious! Our menu included Sweet Potato Fritattas, Cod w/ Mango Salsa, Baked breaded artichoke hearts and Almond Butter Cups. We had a great time and would highly recommend her!

Private Cooking class. Lauren was unbelievable re response time, energy and professionalism. We've yet to take the class but know if it's half the initial experience it will be well worth the money.

Lindsey creates a highly personalized friendly and approachable atmosphere when in the kitchen. Not only is she a highly skilled and creative chef, but she is an absolute pleasure to cook with! She engages her clients and brings them into the cooking experience, allowing them to get hands on experience while learning amazing cooking skills, and tips and tricks for seamless entertaining. What impressed me most about Lindsey and the Date Dish, is how calm and enjoyable she is in the kitchen - and she caters to all levels of cooking - beginners, or if you are trying to learn more advanced skills while having a great time. Would highly recommend Lindsey for all unique dates and events when looking to impress.

It's rare I get to take cooking lessons from someone that's both a chef and a nutritionist. Not only can I now use a chef's knife properly and do wonderful things with avocado and mango (including making tropical mango-avocado guacamole!), I know some tricks to make healthy foods more flavorful. Jackie provides a great experience all around!

I had a wonderful cooking class with Chef Michael Molleda. We chose a menu and he sent me the recipes in advance. He taught me how to prepare a variety of dishes. He made it easy, fun and the food was delicious. We plan on hiring him again!!

Arlene is in a class by herself with her incredible talent, her creativity teaching ability and her experience. There is a tremendous amount of clarity that I got from her lessons in the kitchen and I had many "aha's" that have stayed with me long after we worked together. For instance, I used to cut onions in a really half-hazard (and dangerous!) way until she taught me the proper cutting technique for dicing and shopping them as well as onions and other vegetables. I learned how to understand what is needed in a dish, intuitively, by having her teach me about flavor and balance. I can now make my own recipes, including soups and even some baked good from the strategies and techniques she has taught me. I highly recommend Arlene and the Cooking Workshop!

I have attended many of Andre's cooking classes. I was always learn something new that I can actually use in my own kitchen. When I have a question after attending the class...I just e-mail my question and get a quick response (just not during dinner on a busy Saturday). I absolutely recommend these classes for anyone from beginner to expert...you won't be disappointed!

she is cheerful and it was a great fun lesson. I am a complete beginner but she carefully and clearly told me not only the hang of cooking but how to use the kitchen tool.
