We had a fantastic time with Chef William. I booked "A Taste of France" for my wife's birthday. William welcomed us into his home and began teaching in a way that was not just instructional, but informative, detailed, and engaging most of all. He is very passionate about both cooking and teaching, and it shows. We look forward to our next class.

Che Williams was great. This was our first time attending a class like this and he made it very easy to understand and follow instructions. Great at keeping the conversation going so there is no awkward silence. My wife and I had an amazing time and will definitely attend his other classes.

The Cozymeal class with Chef William Ramsay was fun, informative, interesting, and at the end of the class - a cozy meal. Of course when you book you have no idea who else will sign up, but our class consisted of three diverse couples and that brought interesting and enjoyable aspects to the class. Chef Ramsay has a multi-faceted culinary background and a great deal of teaching experience. This made the information provided unfold in a natural manner and easy to grasp. Additionally, there was a glitch in the online sign-up and Chef went above and beyond to assist me in my efforts to become enrolled in the class even though it was short notice.

We really enjoyed our experience with Chef William! He's extremely knowledgeable and very engaging. All of the food was delicious but his Double Chocolate Cookies are so amazing they'll change your life! It's worth it to go to this class just to get that recipe alone ☺️
