Chef Kayla was great and very personable. She kept the night going and it did not feel like 3 hours. The food was great with many items we would probably not think of ordering on a night out. Chef Kayla is a top notch chef. Thanks for starting our 25th Anniversary celebration off right.

Phenomenal host and chef. My wife and I learned a few things but most of all, we enjoyed our time together learning to prepare a healthy vegan meal. I would highly recommend her and will book her service again in the near future.

We had a great time food was better than restaurants. Host couldn't have been nicer and she was very professional. Your missing out if you don't go to one of her classes.

Chef Kayla was GREAT! She was tons of fun and a very professional, talented chef. She moved around our kitchen as if it were hers and added ingredients that weren't in the recipe but that she saw we liked and knew would fit the meal. We had a great time with her and would recommend her for sure to others.

Chef Kayla was amazing! She was prompt and on time. She was able to accommodate us by allowing us to customize our menu for the evening. The food was absolutely delicious. We had so much fun with her. Thank you so much chef Kayla for a night to remember!

Kayla was phenomenal and the meal she prepared with us was out of this world! We would highly recommend Kayla, she got all of us engaged in the meal prep (we had a party of four). The end result was a terrific meal. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I bought this experience as Mother's Day gift. The meal was delicious with the best steak and sweet potatoes the guests have had. A lot of tips around the kitchen were learned. Chef Kayla was kind and flexible. She made many accomodations around multiple allergies. Just wish there was a back-up in case a guest makes a mistake cooking their dessert. An overall great evening and wonderful gift idea.

It was a very relaxing evening with Kayla. She made herself feel at home and shared quite a few cooking tips I didn’t know about. She is very easy-going and down to earth. And I had so much food!!!

The 'Chef Kayla experience' was unforgettable! A++ food/menu and she was so personable. Amazing vibes were part of her menu! Definitely happy to have her for our special occasion. Kayla's communication was superb prior to the evening. She was flexible on adapting the menu for our dietary needs. We will definitely be booking her again. It was a night to remember.

Having Chef Kayla to our home was an absolute pleasure! She could not have been more kind and carefree. From the moment the evening started her lively attitude and friendly demeanor allowed us to really get immersed in the class. Chef Kayla alone, made our night entertaining and unforgettable! The food was delicious and easy to prepare. Her instructions got my girlfriend and I involved, but also allowed for us to relax and learn. We truly had an incredible evening, one we will not soon forget! I definitely recommend this at home cooking class for anyone looking for a fun and unique date night. Not to mention the food was to die for!

Chef Kayla is AMAZING! I can’t say enough good things about the overall experience...Chef Kayla was very communicative throughout the process, so I knew exactly ‘what’ & ‘when’ to expect, regarding all aspects of the cooking class/date night. She arrived a few minutes early, and was extremely warm, friendly & conversational from the start, making us feel more than comfortable to share her company & delicious cooking in our home for the evening...She asked immediately, to what ‘Level’ we would like to participate in the cooking process, and accommodated us accordingly. The food was prepped and prepared with skill & care, and she proved to be a witty & engaged conversationalist, adding another facet of FUN to our evening. And finally....The FOOD was absolutely phenomenal! Not only will we use Chef Kayla & Cozymeal again (soon), but my wife and I have already recommended both the Chef & Cozymeal to virtually all of our Friends! A truly unforgettable experience, and it proved to be the perfect idea for a slightly ‘out of the ordinary’ Date idea...

A good Cozymeal chef needs to be approachable, warm and open. Chef Kayla hits all those notes perfectly. She greets guests with a big smile and you instantly feel welcomed. Her dishes had deep flavor profiles that show an understanding of the pallet. From first bite, her dishes made you feel like you were right at home.

Chef Kayla was incredible!! She came 110% prepared with everything and had everything perfectly timed out. Hands down the most memorable meal we've ever had, if not the best one too. (Plus, she's a ton of fun to talk to).

From the moment Chef Kayla walked in we felt like it was an old friend coming to teach us some new skills. She was funny, kind, relatable and had us all at ease. What made this even more amazing is we laughed but had some really great food. This is the first time we had done this but not the last.

Dinner with Chef Kayla was outstanding! She was friendly, polite, and walked us through every part of the meal prep, served us every course, and even cleaned the dishes and kitchen! And the food was DELICIOUS! I have been trying for years to find a meal that pleased my very picky husband; we have been to every type of restaurant, from casual to fancy, and his response was always - it was OK. He said Chef Kayla's chicken was "Good to the bone!", and then cleaned his plate, and started eating off of mine. Not that is a high compliment! We would love to have Chef Kayla back in our home!!
