What a fantastic experience. My wife and I treated ourselves to this class as a holiday present, and it was perfect. The food Chef Pooja cooked with us was delicious, the kitchen was spacious and beautiful, and her company was warm and engaging. We hope to take another class with her some day soon, and I would highly recommend her classes to anyone.

My wife gifted me this exceptional 2.5-hour cooking class and together we crafted a four-course vegetarian Royal North Indian Feast with Chef Pooja. She was extremely professional, gracious, and welcoming. We walked into the immaculate, amazing kitchen we all would love to have every day. Chef Pooja had prepped the fresh ingredients and made ready the spice boxes. What followed filled our tummies with happiness. We were precisely guided through the recipes, beginning with a spinach and pea kabab starter and mint chutney. Chef Pooja graciously presented our made food on a gorgeous table and with gold settings. We devoured our creation and moved back to the kitchen to pull together the rest of our menu: traditional jeera rice to combine with our butter paneer and an amazing saffron-cardamom almond pudding dessert. Together with the cooking tips, Chef Pooja wove in stories of her journeys with strands of our life stories and travels. It made for an engaging and illuminating experience. She filled in the recipes with practical suggestions to make the meals at home doable (e.g., use canned diced tomatoes for better color). We HIGHLY recommend this Cozy Meal experience. Thank Chef Pooja for the time and money well spent.

Chef Pooja was a gracious host in her beautiful house - we had a lively conversation about cooking and traveling and we got to eat absolutely delicious food. We learnt a lot from her and would highly recommend this class.
