Cozymeal Cooking Classes: what do users think?


Valerie Damond: Last night twelve members of my family experienced a truly remarkable Spanish dinner. Chef Greg presented us with a very relaxing and utterly delicious meal. Every course was beautifully displayed and clearly constructed with the best ingredients. He and his helper served us and left the kitchen immaculate. If you would like to experience an expertly crafted Spanish cuisine, I highly recommend Chef Greg.

D H: I had my Cozymeal event today. I have never participated in an online cooking class before, and I must say it was great! My daughter and I took the class making the Chinese dumplings with Chef Li. Chef Li was great and while making the recipes really gave good information on the Chinese culture and the different types of substitutions to use in the event you are not able to get a specific ingredient. She made suggestions regarding kitchen utensils and made sure that all of us were on track with her during her instruction. My only difficulty was with the recipes being in grams and not in US measurements. It would be nice to have both listed. I live in a very rural area and this option of online cooking classes is such a welcome experience. I would definitely take another class!!

Benjamin Bowden: Really enjoyed having Chef Tiffany cook for my girlfriend and me. Great food, great conversation, and a generally excellent evening. One note: she arrived 45 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time, when nobody was home. Her early arrival was a positive, as the meal took a few hours to prepare, but Cozymeal should communicate better with the clients about true arrival time. Bottom line: Tiffany provided an excellent French meal, all cooked from scratch, with fresh ingredients. Moreover, there were leftovers! Really looking forward to my next Cozymeal experience.

Alison Ponzi: We had an evening full of freshly made pasta, bruschetta, and bread pudding with Chef Tiffany. I bought a KitchenAid mixer last year with the pasta attachment, and she was open to teaching me how to use it. She also worked with us on our likes/dislikes allowing us to choose a different appetizer. All in all it was a successful night with great food, company, and conversation.

Grace Morrissey: I loved the class. Chef Li's technique was easy to understand. I just need to practice more. I am making the dumplings again this week. They were delicious. The cabbage salad won a big spot in my heart..., I will make it often. Looking forward to do another class with Chef Li

Steven Sacks: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueMy girlfriend and I took the Festival of Indian Flavor with Chef Manjiri. It was such a wonderful experience - she clearly explained the agenda for the class, told us about herself, explained all the ingredients, and then helped us through all four recipes with both laughter and fun. What a great time!

Theano Kampani: Really enjoyed having Chef Greg cook for my husband and me. Great food, and great conversation!We highly recommend Chef Greg and his Spanish dishes. The star of the menu was the dessert for us :)

Kathleen Norwood: This was a wonderful experience. Chef Gustavo was a delightful host and instructor He shared knife and preparation tips as well as the history of the food. The food was muy rico and we came away with many tips to make prep easier and food tastier for making a yummy paella as well as other dishes. Chef Gustavo created a welcoming, warm and relaxed evening. Thank you, Chef Gutavo!

Jeanne Liu: We took the Festival of Indian Flavors class with Chef Manjiri and it was wonderful! She explained everything and her recipe was fast and not intimidating. What we made was so delicious and I can't wait to try out one of her other classes. Do not hesitate to book one of Chef Manjiri's classes!

Niki Holmes: We had an amazing experience with Chef Judith. Her recipes were easy; we had great company; and the Chef taught us some very useful techniques. --Plus--The food tasted so delicious!

CulinAerie: what do users think?


Ryan McGorty: Culinaerie is one of, if not, the most well-known recreational cooking school in the area. They offer a lot of different cooking instruction to aspiring cooking enthusiasts of all different skill levels. They have an online calendar that shows which classes are available and when. The classes book fast, so be ready to book if you see one you like. You can take individual classes on a class-by-class interest basis, or participate in a series of classes designed to improve your skills through a structured course. If you want to take a knife skills class, learn how to make Thai food, or even make tapas, they have a wide offering of options. The actual location consists of two instruction kitchens, with one being significantly larger than the other. The instructor leads the class through the cooking demonstration and there are overhead TVs and assistants in the room to help in case you need it. The instructor usually walks around while you are cooking/preparing food to give you tips. I went here for a date night cooking class and we had a very good experience. We learned a new recipe which we’ve cooked on our own at home. It is pretty expensive, but it made for a great experience.

Michael Alexander: We came here for my fiancé’s employer’s Christmas party. It was a fantastic! I love to cook and pursue it as a serious hobby. The instructor was great. She was patient with those who did not know techniques and gave pointers to those of us with working culinary knowledge. I will be planning a family function here in future.

M. Marzulla: We did the "Date Night: Craft Cocktails & Small Plates from Mexico City" with Eliza Gonzalez and it was fantastic! The instructions were easy to follow and the dishes were delicious! It was fun learning how to make the cocktails as well, and both instructors were super friendly and helpful! I definitely recommend signing up for one of the date night courses, it turned out to be one of the best dates we have had in a while!

Joanna Claustro: Attended a daytime class with my husband and we both had a wonderful time. The class is well organized and the menu was easy to follow -- which means we can try it again at home! The wine pairings were great (and constantly refilled!) and we were impressed by how delicious the meal turned out. We felt like professionals! We can't wait to return for another class!

The Cosmetology Coach: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueI have just completed my first session of the Beginner's Series with Chef Susan Holt. I will forever use my knife the Chef way. My Wonter Vegetable Gratin was to die for....OMG...can't wait for the next session. Thanks for sharing your expertise with us.
Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful words! It was such a pleasure to have you in class, and we look forward to seeing you next week!

Mark H: We are extremely lucky to have CulinAerie here in DC. I've taken two courses--knife skills with Susan Holt, and four fabulous fish with Wendi James--and both were superb. Excellently designed, organized, and executed, with no shortage of humor and constant helpfulness. I came as a total novice and the combination of practical kitchen skills and great recipes has given me confidence to start making some of the dishes I so enjoy when made by the pros. Looking forward to the next one!

Brittany Gerig Campbell: We had a fantastic experience at the couples cooking and wine pairing class. High quality food, helpful assistants, and an instructor who was a former chef and really knew her stuff. Wine was free-flowing and we never felt rushed. Would definitely come back!

Gerrit Davis: This is a high quality service for a high quality price. I've had two really good experiences here. One suggestion (and reason for 3 stars instead of 5): do not buy a gift certificate to use if you will be in the area for less than a year. Class availability (especially in the winter) is *extremely* limited due to demand. Despite this fact, and even if your scheduled classes are cancelled, CulinAerie sticks to a rigid policy of no refunds on gift certificates.

Amanda Burkholder: We took a bread making class at CulinAerie and had a blast! The teacher was knowledgeable and clear. We made four different kinds of bread and got to take it home. The class took about three hours, which included instruction, mixing, kneading, and baking the bread. They served complimentary wine, coffee and tea during the class which was a great touch. We will definitely take a class from CulinAerie again!

Vanessa: Took a french macaron class over the weekend. It was actually a really fun experience! The macarons came out so much better than I anticipated! I thought for sure we would bomb the recipe. What makes this experience fun is sitting at the same table with fun friendly people :) The chef was good, though a bit curt. The staff that was helping was really nice. I would definitely come back to do this again. Great date night idea, or something fun to do with friends.

Pastry Codex: what do users think?


Core Fit Concepts: Chef Michael was incredibly patient and helpful In Teaching my daughter to become a mini pastry chef. Thank you !!!

Tanya A Royster MD: My teen daughter and I have take 4 classes with Chef Michael and Pastry Codex. My daughter said "each class gets better and better". You really can't go wrong whichever class you take. Chef Michael is expertly trained but teaches like just you and he are at home in his kitchen. He is warm and personable. He gives each student individualized attention so your product is a success. He wants you to take these skills back to your home kitchen. He instills in you the skills and the confidence to replicate again and again. Take a class (or two) with Chef Michael. You won't regret it!
Response: Thank you ladies,I sincerely appreciate you both!

Tracey M: It was such a fun class. Chef Micheal made the recipies so easy and gave me confidence that I can make them at home. I STILL can't believe I made Madeleins!!!! Thank you Chef Michael (and the amazing person who took me to his class 😉). Looking forward to another.
Response: Thank you Tracey, My pleasure hosting the class fr both you and David. I am glad you had fun!

Diana Greenhalgh: Chef Michael provided an informative, casual and enjoyable experience preparing foods that I was too intimidated to try myself. Having someone prepare in front of you and describe what he is doing and why was very helpful, as was being able to see how the dishes looked each step in the process (color and consistency). Sharing his professional tricks and secrets based on Chef Michael's experiences is a bonus. Now I have much more confidence to try these recipes at home.

RP D: This cooking class was tremendously fun and delicious! I took the beignets, cronuts, donuts and churros class. Wow!! I've had these dozens of times but to taste them freshly made was incredible!! Also, they seem intimidating on paper but Chef Michael walks you through step by step and you gain confidence as you go through and eventually see that you are able to make these on your own! This will be fun to make over the holidays with my family and friends! Chef Michael is not only patient and fun but truly knowledgeable and willing to share that knowledge so that you understand the art and science of making these delectable delights. If you've ever wondered how these yummies are made, wait no further and join this class! It easy, fun, and delicious!

Meredith Heatwole: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueThe French pastry class was amazing! So informative with so many delicious desserts. Chef Michael was a great teacher and he planned an incredibly delicious menu. So much fun!

Brad Updegraff: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueMichael was an amazing host! Very informative and personable. The macaroons were delicious and we left wanting more, will definitely be looking into his other experiences.

Tiffany Figueroa: Positive: Quality, ValueI attended the Donuts, Beignet and Cronuts class. It was a great experience and I learned a lot of new things and left with way too many leftovers. Looking forward to attending another class.

Ivona Cetinić: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Valuewonderful experience. three of us did Mad Hatter tea party for friend's bday. it was perfect. and beautiful and yummi.
Response: Thank you Ivona, It was lovely hosting your class!

Georgia Lemberos: Awesome class

Cookology Culinary School: what do users think?


Deserae P.: It was a pleasant experience. I did a dinner adult class. The entree item was shrimp risotto. I personally do not cook that much and the chef instructor made me feel great! He explained the only difference of us the professional and they cook over and over. He explained how properly cut and how to add your personal touch. I really felt confident after class. For adults you could get some nice rose. It all was very nice. I would so come again.

T. Pope: Wow. This was a great experience for my daughter. She got to go hands on and be taught and guided by trained chefs. You just don't get that from youtube videos.

Eleatia Goines: Chef Dave was great! Had patience with the newbies and gave good explanation about the meal prep. Knife lesson, seasoning your food, quick meal plan, and meat selection was a plus. The outcome of today's lesson was great. Not great as Dave but after today's lesson, he gave me the confidence to start making meals with fresh ingredients. #Dave #Tosada Thanks E

john yembrick: We purchased a certificate for a Cookology kids birthday party at our preschool auction on May 6, 2021. Our daughter’s birthday is May 4. When we contacted them on April 18 to book the party, I noticed that it expired on April 1, 2022. We contacted them by email asking if they would please still honor their donation to the preschool, even though we were a little late in contacting them, and our daughter’s birthday happened after the expiration. They replied asking for the certificate and how old my daughter was. After several follow up emails and two voice messages, their manager, Kori, called me on May 4, my daughter’s actual birthday, to say she regrettably could not honor it. I was surprised they wouldn’t be more flexible. Kori offered to redeem the certificate, but would still charge us $317 for a service fee not referenced on the certificate and for the increase in food cost. This was supposed to be a donation, not a break even endeavor. If you don't want to give, then don't. I told the manager I needed to consult with my wife, as I was very disappointed in the conversation, tone and poor customer service from this company. My wife called back to ask some clarifying questions, as she still wanted to have the party there, shortly after and was treated very poorly by Kori, who raised her voice and belittled her. I understand we contacted them after the certificate expired. That’s on us, but that is no excuse for the abysmal treatment. At the end of the day, this was supposed to be a fun birthday cooking class for kindergarteners from a preschool donation. We were really looking forward to it. Instead it turned into a contentious battle. My six-year-old daughter thought she was having her birthday party at Cookology, but we will never patron there. Just be nice. It's not hard.
Response: Wow. This is not at all what happened. We contacted you several times—from April 18 to today—we the have the emails to prove it. Unfortunately what we explained today was the value of the party was no longer the cost for the party. Prices for food and labor have skyrocketed and we simply asked if they could cover the difference which was $318. The value of the silent auction was $350 for a party of 10 kids, which they only donated $250. Making their outlay for the party only $568, where our prices start for that age group start at $65 per person. So for 10 kids they still were getting a discount. We explained so many times that we needed to cover expenses. We were not making money off of this party. We did everything we could but were met with very angry individuals who could not see our logic or reasoning.

Bryan Schonhaut: I've gone here twice - both times I did the cake decorating class and both times have been very enjoyable. Depending on the day, you may be paired with only a couple other people or 15, really depends on how popular the course is. Both times I had a solid instructor, the instructor for the smaller class was definitely more attentive but, that's understandable given the second class had closer to 15 people attending. I liked that they had a bar where you could get drinks while you cooked and the atmosphere was very laid back, fun and casual. Only grievance I have is the price. For the cake class, it was $65 and it tends to vary greatly depending on what class you're attending and what you're making. That being said, at this price, it's definitely more of a special occasion type event. That being said, it was still a ton of fun.

Jada M: Service was horrible, the instructor teaching us had limited communication and was not paying attention to us. We had to make the macaroons by our selves. They were helping everyone one else but us ours didn’t come out good because they didn’t help us. She said our macaroons were perfect and took them out early causing them to mess up. The instructor was rude and short, seems like she did not want to be there we had limited amount of hands on instruction if you want hands on instruction this is not the class for you. They show once and get irritated when questions are asked. If you are a beginner this this institution is not good for you.
Response: You showed up 45 minutes late for your class. We made the mistake of allowing you to participate. Your girls were not at all interested nor did they participate nor did you participate. The chefs and sous chef had to pretty much do everything for you. It’s still confusing as to why you would even expect us to be able to do more than we did we basically took the class for you.

Ashley Whimpey: My partner and I attended the Early Valentine's Day Italian class and it was one of the TOP TEN best things I've done in my whole life. I have always been interested in cooking/baking, but never been particularly gifted at it. Having an entire professional kitchen as well as personal step-by-step guidance (plus wine...) made this so much fun we ended the night already looking at other classes to take. I cannot recommend this experience enough!

Emily Banks: I highly recommend Cookology virtual cooking classes! My local cooking classes were canceled due to the pandemic. I was in search of a semester type class where we learned the fundamentals of cooking over the course of a few weeks. The virtual Cookology Bootcamp was exactly what I was looking for- 4 weeks, twice a week, and you make a full meal by the end of the class. It was awesome, I learned so much, and my overall cooking has improved significantly. Chef Greg was very knowledgeable and patient, and I really liked that you could ask him questions as you cook. The customer service is excellent as well, I had some cooking related questions outside of class and they were always prompt to answer. I am looking forward to the second part of this virtual boot camp, and highly recommend Cookology to anyone looking to improve their cooking skills! You don't need to be local :)

Stephanie Safro: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueFun way to share an evening. Learned a few things. Made my meal and got to eat while we cooked and took the rest home. Chef Renee was a lot of fun. Food was good. Location was easy to get to with Orange line Metro. We were able to remain socially distanced for others who took same class. Would go there again.

Roshy K: I booked a Halloween treats making class for my kiddies (ages 10 and 5) on Halloween day, and loved everything about the class! My kids got to make whoopie pies, hot cocoa, and pumpkin shaped rice krispy treats. I enjoyed that each family's table was spaced out and the ingredients were all pre-measured out and ready for us. The chef instructor went at the perfect speed and ensured all were following along before moving along to the next step. And, the treats turned out super delicious!! We even had some extra whoopie pie batter that we were able to take home with us. My children have been asking to return ever since.

Megan Barnes: The cake of my dreams was created by Tiffany at Buttercream. When we did our tasting I was blown away at how I would be able to choose as every flavor was better than the last. She did an incredible job pulling our English garden vibe together for a beautiful cake on our wedding day.
Response: Thank you so much Megan!! You were such a JOY to work with. We are beyond grateful for word full clients like you!!!

Elizabeth Meltzer: These cream puffs were THE HIT for our small backyard wedding reception! We had a cake (not provided by Buttercream), but, it was overshadowed by these delicious puffs. Everyone asked where we got them, and kept going back to get more or try to choose one with a different flavor (we had mocha and vanilla). These are unlike anything I've had from anywhere else - just absolute perfection. Having something fancy and unexpected like this really made our unconventional wedding feel a little more special. I even had a friend sneak several into my car so I would be sure to have a few as we drove away (because you can be sure that there were no leftovers!) Thank you Buttercream!
Response: Wowowow! What an amazing review. Thank you for taking the time to share this. Honestly, the cream puffs are a staff favorite so I'm happy you love them as much as we do. (Pro tip - be sure to try the birthday cake cream filled puffs when we *finally* re-open)

Jane L: I ordered a Best of Buttercream Box back in August. Just catching up with my review now. Quarantine inspired me to try a lot of local businesses and discovering pastry boxes was a fun twist on ordering takeout. Buttercream's Best of box is offered every few weeks in advance online and you don't know what's in it until a day or two before pick-up. You know there will be 6-7 pieces and it costs $37. Check out my photos to see what I got. All of the pastries I got were high quality, rich, and delicious. For me, however, they were too sweet. I split each piece with my Mom and I still couldn't finish any of them in one sitting. I would have preferred a lighter touch. I think other people would be completely in heaven, though. The ordering and pick up process is super quick and I loved that the chef actually handed me my box with some tips on storing.

Chels Owens: Looooooooove their cake and cupcakes! These people are top notch and make high quality baked goods, you will not be disappointed. I got a gorgeous unicorn cake from them that was a huge hit with my friends and I got myself a cotton candy cupcake that was the absolute best.

Tina P: First, the customer service was really good. I was running late for my pick up and it was not a problem, the girl I spoke with was very nice. The cupcakes were beautifully presented and tasted great. I ordered the gluten free elderflower lemon cupcakes with blackberry jam. My boyfriend has an allergy, so we've been on the hunt for really good gluten free cupcakes. These were light, fluffy and moist. Will shop there again for our pastry needs!

nitubw: This is my go to bakery for special ordering celebration cakes! Buttercream makes it easy to order online and provide ideas for specialty cakes. My older daughter loved her Wonder Woman cake! It was honestly looked almost too good to eat. Almost. She had her favorite flavor, S’mores. They made my younger daughter’s Moana dream come true with her birthday cake which also incorporated her favorite flavor: Vanilla cake with lemon curd and strawberry buttercream (despite it not being on their menu at that time). The cake was the right amount of sweet and the buttercream was fantastic. My husband had also purchased one of their peek-a-boo cakes (Elderflower soaked lemon cake with blackberry jam and vanilla buttercream) for my birthday. Let’s just say this family of four devoured it!

Kay Chevalier: I was in DC for the weekend and my Airbnb was close to the bakery; I’m too embarrassed to admit the number of times I stopped in to get another treat. Everything I tried was amazing! Like AMAZING!!! Their savory breakfast roll was super. The one I had was filled with egg, cheese, & sausage. The Queen Bee was flakey and soft and buttery and sugary, a perfect balance. Oh my, I want one just thinking about it. Ps.- their unicorn hot chocolate is adorable!

Mackenzie Jandernoa: Super cute and friendly spot! The Reese peanut butter cup cookie bar was absolutely phenomenal and worth every bite. I enjoyed the chocolate chip cookie and the half brownie/half cookie bar as well, however, the funfetti cupcake was a huge miss for me; this certainly could be due to personal preference. It just didn’t have much flavor. More specifically, the frosting was super bland. Overall, it’s still worth stopping in and checking out the variety of treats they have to offer!

Kate Morton: Buttercream was good, the gluten free snickers brownie was tasty but I did hope there would be more gluten free options. My date said the triple chocolate cupcake was good though the icing could’ve been more flavorful.

Loree Lipstein: Cake is literally my favorite food... I've been known to eat upwards of 8 pieces of wedding cake at other weddings. I'm rather famous for it actually. So for my own wedding, the cake was one of the most important things to me. I wanted it to be GOOD cake above all else -- a pretty cake that doesn't taste amazing is not really cake! Buttercream knocks it out of the park on both fronts. The cake is as delicious as cake can get -- truly insane. And they offer so many amazing flavors! We ended up with three different ones because it was so hard to choose. And then on top of the cake being absolutely amazing... their designs are gorgeous. We did both a traditional beautiful cake and a fun groomscake that we designed special. Both exceeded our expectations. If you're in the DC Metro area, you must work with Buttercream!
Response: Congratulations!!! We were so thrilled to be part of your big day and this review is the icing on the cake cake. We LOVED both of your designs ~ thank YOU for letting us be a part of such a special memory for you and your husband (!!)

Fran's Cake & Candy Supplies: what do users think?


Gary Connor: For a baker, this place has to be heaven on earth. Easy to find with plenty of parking, Fran's has every type of baking supply and equipment you can think of and will offer multiple choices. I'm not a baker but I am told the shop has everything you might need. The prices seemed high but if the family baker accompanied me to a DIY store, they would feel the same.

Clare Bolton: Frans has EVERYTHING you could possible need. Including cake decorating, cupcakes, cookies, molds. The employees walked up to me and asked if I needed help politely. Very amazing and was like a bakers heaven. Excited to come back!!
Response: Hello Clare, Thank you so much for the 5-star review!! We are happy to her you loved our store! I will make sure to pass the good compliments to our amazing staff. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Thank you!

X: I have zero decorating experience but thought it would be fun to try. Chef Dawn taught this layer cake class on buttercream, fresh floral and gold drip. I’d never done piping or icing before but she was encouraging and I left with a pretty good final product. There was 8 in my class, 2 people per table. They provide all the supplies (cake, icing, spatulas, flowers, buttercream, gold, edging tools, etc), you create the product and take it home. Way more advanced classes if that is what you are looking for. They do seem to book out fast, so click all the way on the Event Bright info to make sure they aren’t sold out of the class you want. You get a discount on store products the day of your class. The two store employees (or owner/s?) were helpful and complimentary to us in the class.
Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the cake decorating class with Chef Dawn! Your cake looks amazing! We hope you have an opportunity to join us for another class soon!

Rochelle Whittall: I buy most of my supplies for cakes from here. I bought some stuff recently and they gave me a wrong product by mistake. I emailed the store to ask for a solution because it was urgent. It was about 1 hour drive so didn’t have a way of going back but a lady named Debbi immediately responded and said she will bring it to me the following day. She delivered it as promised. The store and the staff is great. I highly recommend buying products from here
Response: Hi Rochelle, We appreciate your business and your kind words! I am so sorry we made a mistake with your order. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to fix it for you! We hope the project you are working on is a huge success! Thank you!

Alicia Lamb-Moody: I love this store! They know me by name now, lol.All of the employees are always kind and helpful. I can always find just about everything I need for whatever I want to bake next. I especially love the variety of cookie cutters and chocolate/candy molds. Plus, I love the fact that it's not a chain store.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! And, THANK YOU, for giving us the opportunity to serve you. We love helping with and seeing all of your awesome projects!

Sharon Sacks: If you're looking for stencils, shapes for cake pops, custom colors, and every form of decorating this is the place. They do offer classes such as cake decorating as well. Knowledgeable place and friendly staff. You can go here as a home cook but this is more geared towards people who do this for a living. You will find anything you could possibly need.
Response: Hello Sharon, Thank you so much for the 5-star review!! We are pleased to know you enjoyed everything in our store. We hope to see you again soon! Thank you!

Sur La Table: what do users think?


Fonsetta Badger Brown: The cooking class was loads of fun. Pressure cooked short ribs, mushr!ooms risotto and cheesecake with caramel sauce.. The instructor was awesome!

Tatiana Padilla: Finally got to do a class in person after joining several virtual ones, we LOVED the experience! It was my Christmas gift to my mom and best friend, it was fun— delicious— and they couldn’t wait to try the recipes at home. Lots of hands on practice, PLENTY of food, and the chef+assistant we’re very engaged and kind. Excited to be back in two weeks for Italian steak night 😋 A few ways the class could be improved: —I ’ve grown up in the US since I was 5yoa, and even I had a bit of hard time understanding the prof. He spoke a tad bit fast/muffled. — offer BYOdrinks, we were sad to be drinking water with such a nice meal. — groups of 2-3 max per station so everyone has a chance to help with the prep. Our group of 3 had 2 stations and we felt that was PERFECT! Wouldn’t want to be 4 people to one station.

Erin McMenamin: The cooking class was extremely fun and informative. The staff and the chef were amazing gracious hosts. We cooked salmon, asparagus and a savory soufflé; all delicious. They took good care of us and I can't say enough good things! Highly recommend.

Rasha Sharif: Zero for customer service! The lady named Donna was terrible! She did not ask me for my email to add the amount I purchased toward my perks program. She was cold and did not hide her racism from the beginning! I love Sur la table but this was annoying. I want my perks added!! Edit: I love sure la table and I shop online ! This was my first time to stop at the store next door and I was disappointed :(

Alexis McCoy: I loved the cooking class (steak frites, 01May22) the instructor was very knowledgeable and provided tips for other meals with similar ingredients. Would love to do it again.

L. Charisse Davis: I was looking for some upscale corn holders. They did not have any like that. I started looking around at other things, like cloth napkins. They had some nice ones. But others appeared a bit shopworn (dirty) and were not marked down. I had a hard time swallowing the prices of the "new" ones, much less the shopworn ones that were the same prices. I guess made of linen in India costs more than made in China. 🤭 It is a beautiful store, both inside and out (loved the beautiful potted plants outside), and it does have some nice things--baking pans, appliances, kitchen tools, etc.--just not what I was looking for. Oh, and the staff was very pleasant and tried to be helpful.

Cynthia Davis: My friend and I came here for the pasta cooking class with Chef Scott. It was absolutely incredible we couldn’t stop talking about it all the way home. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and fun and all the food was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our girls night out and we will definitely be back for more classes!

Nizar Farsakh: Large selection of kitchenware and utensils . Mostly the high-end stuff better quality so pricey but they often have sales which makes things reasonably priced . This location also has cooking lessons right next door which are a lot of fun if you're into cooking.

Kyle D: The staff is friendly, helpful, but will let you shop if you want to alone. You can get really high end knives and cookware ($1600+) here!

Jay Empty: So much fun learning to make sushi tonight with Chef Cacchiitti and my table partner Adele.

Imagine Cake Studio: what do users think?


Rick Garcia: They came through last minute with an amazing cake! A company canceled on me Thursday night for a Sunday event. I emailed Imagine Studio and they came through. They are very friendly and great customer service. Their cakes were super moist and beautifully done! Love this place. They also support the military!
Response: Glad we had the opportunity to help out! Thank you for your business!

Brandi H: We’ve ordered several cakes from them at this point. One time we actually were given the wrong cake but it worked out fine in the end. Since then we have always paid the extra $25 to have the cake delivered instead of picking it up. The cakes always taste amazing and always look good. I can trust that the pic I send of the cake I want is what I will get. The only thing I will say is that my last cake was delivered in a box that smelled like smoke, so I had to immediately take it out of the box and throw the box away. It did not affect the cake’s taste thankfully.

Mariama Y.K. Smart: I ordered a CocoMelon cake 3 days before a godsons birthday party and they did not disappoint. The cake not only looked good, it tasted awesome!!! I will definitely be using their services again!!!
Response: We are so glad you were pleased! Thank you!

Tiffany Balmer: they should change their name to cupcakes and customer service. The drop off of the cup cakes was top tier. I learned how to properly unbox cupcakes!!! thanks for taking the time to bake and teach. They were so cute and yummy. Thanks!!!

Corey Marshall: Order yours today you won't be disappointed! I have one slice left in the freezer from August and don't want to take it out until I have another cake in hand.DELICIOUS 😋
Response: We're so glad you are happy!

Malcolm Scott: I ordered a custom cake for my wife for Valentine's Day and she was very pleased with how the cake and decorations turned out. The cake itself was very tasty. My wife and I are usually not a fan of the thicker frosting used on these types of cakes, but we were pleasantly surprised with how much we enjoyed the frosting on this cake. Their prices were affordable and the delivery was right on time. Would definitely use them again.
Response: Thank you for your business! We hope to work with you again in the future!

Tesfa Seyoum: My wife placed a Birthday cake order 2 weeks ahead, my son likes vanilla flavor cake, he does not like Chocolate cake at all, the cake was suppose to be delivered at 3:00pm. What they did was very very sad, around 3:30 pm we were worried and started calling them becouse they did not delivered as they promised, and their was no answer, around 4:00pm I decided to go to the store, when I get to the store I found out the store was a fake address, the store was a convenient store it was not a bakery and the people who were their told me the bakery use the store to delver the cake only, they have no way of contacting the baker. The cake was finally delivered around 5:25pm, after we gave up on them and went and bought a cake from Wholefoods, in addition the cake was a chocolate cake we did not ordered. My son's birthday was ruined. If you want to have a decent program please don't order anything from these people. After my wife complaint via email, they decide to give us back $25.oo. Till now no body called and apologized or gave us an explanation for what went down.

whitney hurley: Made a beautiful cake that tasted amazing! The cake was bigger than I was expecting, but that’s not a bad problem to have. The design was exactly as requested.

Maria Zenquis: I ordered the 15 cupcakes and was delivered on sept 24. The cupcakes didn’t taste fresh and also I thought that all 15 cupcakes were going to fit in one box. Would I have known that I would’ve just order 12 . It was awkward to see two boxes and one box had only 3 in them . I’m addition you guys should really work on your packaging . It’s looks generic . I may have well just bought cupcakes from store rather than ordered them . Thank you . But I will not order again and will give your company a bad review

Blain: They deliver the cake 2 and half hours late after we finished the birthday celebration. On top of that, we ordered vanilla flavor, but we received chocolate. Very disappointing.

Together We Cook: what do users think?


Cristina Padrao: My daughter had classes with Mari in the past and loved it. We didn’t attend many more classes because Mari’s cooking studio is far from where we live. With the pandemic, I had the idea to ask Mari to do a virtual birthday party cooking class to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and it was a total success. Everybody loved and had a great time (kids and adults!). the recipes she taught us how to make were all super delicious! Thank you Mari for making Gabi’s party so special.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Cristina! It was a pleasure to be part of your family's special celebration and see all those happy faces cooking together! ; )

Amanda Willhite: We love Ms. Mari!!! She is amazing with children. We’ve done two cooking classes with her and this last one, all three of my girls were able to do it and had a blast. We plan to do many more. In fact, tonight they made the meal they learned for my husband and me. It was delicious! I love how she teaches them how to create healthy delicious food that otherwise my girls wouldn’t touch. One of my daughters is autistic and Mari is extremely patient and understanding with her. I can’t speak enough wonderful things about her and her classes. Let your kids give it a try and you can benefit when they cook at home for you!
Response: Thank you for your most wonderful review, Amanda! So important, especially during these challenging times. I’m glad to hear that the girls cooked at home! 😍

Jennifer Hole: Our Brownie troop had a wonderful experience at Together We Cook. Multiple times throughout the class different girls remarked how much fun they were having. Every single girl tasted at least one new kind of food and many of them were shocked and amazed to learn how delicious egg salad can be! Mari organized a class for eleven 8-year-old girls, at the end of a school day. The girls were full of energy (as always!) and Mari was patient, kept the class moving forward beautifully, and kept everyone engaged. We worked towards the "Healthy Snacks" badge and the girls and their parents were all very pleased with the experience. My two children (I also have a 6-yr-old son) have both thoroughly enjoyed classes at Together We Cook. They have grown in confidence in the kitchen and feel very proud of the skills they have learned with Mari. They have tried new foods during each class and my daughter, after learning to make Apple Galettes in class, recreated them for our extended family last Thanksgiving. The classes are small, Mari has a beautiful calm presence with kids, and her love for teaching about healthy, delicious food is apparent. I highly, highly recommend her classes!!!
Response: Thank you so much for the excellent detailed review, Jennifer! I'm glad that everyone had a wonderful experience. : )

Liza Karina Agudelo: My kids have always loved attending Mari's classes and yesterday we had the first "virtual" class via zoom! It was a lot of fun! We loved how we received all the ingredients/supplies list in advance so we could be prepared. A delicious and easy menu to prepare for brunch. Thank you Together We Cook!!

Sophia S: My son has taken 3 workshop classes (two in person and once virtually) with Mari now and he loves every experience! He's baked biscuits, made pizza from scratch and prepared celery soup. The ingredients aren't many, the techniques aren't difficult, and best of all, it's given my son a full appreciation of food and cooking!

Kelly B: Mari's love of children and cooking shines through in each of her classes and camps. My daughter loved her first cooking camp so much that it was the only camp that she even asked about going to the following summer. She also tried new food, eagerly talked about showing me her new skills in the kitchen, and wants to help cook "her" recipes at home. As a parent of a child with food allergies and dietary restrictions, Mari has also made it incredibly easy for my daughter to participate. I cannot say enough good things about these classes and camps!
Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such detailed review of Together We Cook, Kelly! Much appreciated. : )

Kyra J: We had our 5th grade junior Girl Scout troop earn their cooking badge today. Mari was great. The girls were engaged. They Used math to plan nutritionally balanced meals. Most of all they had fun.Would highly recommend Mari’s cooking class.
Response: Thank you so much, Jacqueline for taking the time to write a review, Jacqueline! Much appreciated.

stephanie birdwell: We loved Ms. Mari’s class. Our kids attended both in person and online (she manages the online format very well) she’s great with the kids, keeps everyone focused, on task and incorporates science and very practical skills into each session. Our entire family really enjoyed the delicious croque madames along with the yummy salad. A simple, but impressive meal.

Lara Chapman: Mari covered every detail, and our kids had an exceptional time! We had 5 kids (celebrating a 6-year-old's birthday) and the kids loved the entire experience of making fresh ravioli from scratch, playing a food-related game, and of course enjoying eating their delicious work. We look forward to returning for future classes! This is perfect for homeschoolers too, as Mari can work with different times of the day/week.
Response: Thank you so much for leaving a review, Lara! I'm so glad everyone had a wonderful experience. : )

J Vyas: Awesome cooking classes for kids. We did one cake baking and decorating class and one pasta-making birthday party. The owner, Mari, is extremely patient with kids. She explains larger cooking concepts (e.g. what to do if you put too much salt or liquid into a recipes). Close to the beltway location with plenty of parking makes getting to classes easy. Highly recommend!
Response: Thank you so much! : )

Baked by Yael: what do users think?


Suradee Thongkiattikul: Great place to stop by after the zoo to grab a quick bite. The bagel sandwiches are around $6 and baked goods are around $4 each. Overall a decent place with vegan and gluten-free options. Nut-free and kosher if that’s also a concern for you. They had cute zoo-themed cake pops here and if you want a cute panda pop then this is the place for you. I tried their southwestern sandwich on an everything bagel and it was tasty and big enough that you’re full but not overly stuffed. I also tried their cookie bar and it was okay, though I wish I would’ve gone with their raspberry bar instead (maybe next time).

Marie Brown: Beautiful cake pops. I wanted to get a holiday gift for my mom (who already has everything) and support local business at the same time. Online order and curbside pickup were very easy.

Matthew Henry: The best hamantaschen anywhere. Impressive, both Vegan and regular. Their vegan Reuben is an amazing experience. Even if you've never had anything vegan before, try it. And, be careful, you may never eat an animal again :)
Response: Wow, thank you! We're so happy you enjoy our hamantaschen and sandwiches. We agree with you that they're quite delicious :-)

Christen Sparago: Baked by Yael is a real hidden gem. This place feels like a neighborhood bakery but has a surprisingly extensive menu (which is almost entirely vegetarian or vegan, with gluten-free options available too). Their cake pops are delicious and really cute, but the standouts for me are their bagels -- some of the best I've ever had in my life, and definitely the best I've had in DC. They're clearly handmade and always fresh. The whole staff, Yael herself included, is super friendly and there's some nice seating outside right across from the Zoo entrance. Highly recommend the next time you're walking up Connecticut or picking up a snack to take on the Tregaron trails!
Response: What a testimonial! Thank you, Christen! We are so grateful to have amazing customers like you.

Corine Sass: I buy an assorted bag of bagels and a tub of cream cheese every saturday from the Alexandria Farmer's Market and they are something I seriously can't do my week without! I love that I can just throw them in the freezer and reheat them in the mornings, making them taste fresh out of the oven every time. They are chewy (-in the best way) and soft at the same time, some of the best bagels I've had! Definitely worth a try.
Response: Corine, thank you so much for your kind words and for being such a loyal customer!

Ryan Wee Sim: TL;DR - Food is delicious and kosher, management is bitter and not-so-kosher. Vegan faire is great! Bagels are tasty, if a bit small. But the customer service was bad enough that I won't be going back. Submitted my order at 9:28am for 10am pickup. I arrive at 10:01am, to a shop with no customers, and am welcomed by the (seemed to be) manager who couldn't be bothered to look up from her computer. I inquire about my online order for 10am, she finishes her computer task, then walks to the kitchen, where I can see the person just start making my order (2 bagel sandwiches, no modifications). I say, "I was hoping to just run in and out", holding a toddler fidgeting with their mask. The manager says, "it will be right out", again barely looking up. I step outside, and return at 10:10. Still no food in hand. I mumble my frustration, but still no apology from the manager. At 10:12, the person making my order hands me two bags and says zero words. Manager is in the kitchen, waving a paper at her staff. On my way out, I hear the manager say in an agitated voice to her staff, "you don't have your own thermometers?!" I had enjoyed getting cake balls on zoo visits, but with management like I witnessed, no thank you, not ever again.

Rowan Cloud: I love this place! They have a great variety of options, including gluten and allergen free foods. The staff is very nice and incredibly helpful, and I always feel welcomed coming in here. The decor gifted to them from the zoo across the street are an added bonus- so cute!

Pete Freeman: Typically coming to a bakery at the end of the day is a mistake, and while I missed the morning brownies there were plenty of cake pops and they were excellent! I also want to counter some of the reviews of staff behavior; the woman who helped me was friendly and quick. I’m impressed!

Toby Barg: Can’t speak for the in person experience, but we ordered breakfast and snacks to our hotel for our group and it was nicely presented, delicious, on time. Warm bagels snd cream cheese and other options. Highly recommend the Duffins (donuts crossed with muffins) which were fresh, soft and very delicious (maple glazed and chocolate glazed were our favorites).

Allison F: Now that I am back from out of town, I will share the details of my experience. Customer service was extremely lacking. Employee did not get my name correct despite repeating it twice. I figured she got the 2nd attempt, as she did not ask me again or clarify how to spell it. Didn't think "Allison" was that difficult. As a result, my order got lost and I did not receive my food for a while because they and I did not recognize the name they were calling. Once I received my "small" lox bagel, it was disappointingly ungenerous and low on the portion with the lox, not worth the pricey $10. My partner had multiple grounds in the bottom of his coffee that he was irritated with and the cake pop was "ok". In my opinion, the commercial ones Starbucks sells are better, so we wished we just went to the one next door. We were on a time limit getting to the zoo, so this sadly resulted in this review.
Response: We're sorry you didn't enjoy your visit, but we wish you had shared your feedback with us. Please email info@bakedbyyael.com so we can learn more.

I ordered a vanilla cake with Oreo filling, as well as a few dozen cakesicles in red velvet, funfetti and cookie butter. All were delicious, but my favorite was definitely the cookie butter! I sent her an inspiration photo for the cake, but ultimately gave her creative freedom to do whatever she wanted. The cake came out so fun! The theme was Trolls and I love that the cake colors matched the party decor perfectly. Will be ordering from Lala whenever I am in need of a show stopping cake!
Response: Thank you so so much!!! I loved the stripes on yours. And your party was beautiful. I appreciate all the support!!

University of the District of Columbia Community College (UDC-CC): what do users think?


Henok D: The most terrible school I have ever been to. Both the main campus and the Community college are the same. A lot of slow, unprofessional, and rude staff who keep yelling at students when they are not even doing their jobs properly. I submitted a certain paper to the Financial Aid office and they told me they lost the paper after weeks that I had to pay about $1700 out of pocket. During the 2020 Pandemic, I tried to contact them as I was having difficulty to waive the Student Insurance that is provided through the school because I already had an insurance coverage; no one answered my call until it was due. And now Miss Gaskon told me that I have to pay about $1300 for the coverage I never needed. Mis Gascon was there in 2018/19 when I had the same issue; she helped me waive it then. I could not go to her office in 2020 be a of Covid restrictions. I tried to solve the issue communicating with them but nothing got better yet. I would not recommend anyone to go the UDC unless one needs a headache. I cannot deny that there are some great Professors such as Prof. Sonnie Abebaku. However, individuals are very helpful to us, it’s overall experience at the university that makes a difference in our academic lives. So far, my overall experience is just TERRIBLE!

Danielle Carroll: I went to school here for my AA and it was a breeze. Yes the admissions needs some work (never fixed it) but the education, the teachers and the school itself is fine. It's so affordable and you can always learn something new. I got a paid internship through UDC and even though with it's slight hiccups, this school is still great. I'm at the main campus now working on my Bachelors and I'm 16 classes shy of finishing. Don't pay the haters any mind.

Edgar E: Worst administration I have ever had to deal with. Not only do they never respond to email or phone calls, they can't even keep track of ELECTRONIC applications, that required my daughter to submit 3 times and be forced enrolled late into classes due to their incompetence. But they also can't even have the literacy to read the applications correctly to charge the correct rate to students. They went ahead to charge not only my daughter but several other students out-of-state resident rates when all their applications illustrated DC residents. Like how can you not even read what's on the applications! How many other students were charged nearly 3 times when they should have been charged as a DC residents scares me on the level of corruption and neglect this body demonstrates to it's it's attendees.0 Then to not even have the decency and competence to even respond to emails and calls to try to correct this is just completely absurd, no wonder UDC is a laughing stock of a school to attend they can't even serve as a place to get extra credits for actual schools. How neglectful can you be to students and applicants, like seriously!

Lucien Graves: I was interested in nursing but the department leads never answer even with me contacting them daily for the last 3 months. Not to mention the admissions department takes 2 weeks to email back and never answers a single call. Just go in person, it's faster but still highly unprofessional since they eat and have conversations with others in front of you. You can see why they never answer.

Yesly Turcios: GLEN DOMINA rudest person ever if you are working under a facility and a Student is inquiring on information/assistance you should be able to provide that at your upmost ability but unfortunately that was not the case here..

Danny Hirschfield: I graduated UDC-CC with an AA degree in Liberal Studies Fall Class of 2015 Alumnus. This college really helped me develop my learning skills as I am an older non-traditional student that started as a freshman with very little prior knowledge and discipline in academia. I have transitioned to the UDC flagship campus pursuing my BA degree in Political Science as a pre-law student. This university is the most affordable place to get a good quality education being the only public higher learning institution in Washington, D.C.

Jamilya Allen: Okay So I applied about 3weeks to a month ago and I’ve yet to receive any papers informing me if I was missing any documents or etc. I’ve called at least 5 times a day for about two weeks straight leaving voicemail after voicemail and no one has yet to return my call not only did I call multiple times I have also emailed them multiple and no response. It’s ridiculous what’s the point of having an admissions office if they not even going to pick up the phone, guide you in the process of being admitted or anything else like you guys get paid to do nothing it’s sad.

h T: This University has only good professors! But getting a Bachelor from the UDC will not get you a job!! Their jobs faire is just to get a website from the companies and brochures lol!

Jordan Stewart: The financial aid lady with gray hair and dreads is disrespectful af. Most of the staff here are disorganized and rude. I disenrolled 2 months ago. When I went to disenroll the lady was eating crab legs in front of me. Come to find out she never really disenrolled me, and I had to go back up there today. Smh. I really wanted this to work bc I’m a Dc Resident but I’m enrolling at PGCC.

Milk Bar Logan Circle Flagship: what do users think?


India Lindsay: A classic, must-try dessert shop. Cereal milk soft serve is yummy and refreshing. The milk bar “crack” pie is great - we found it tasted better after taking it home and letting it sit in the fridge for a bit. The staff were friendly and offered generous samples. Gotta watch the Chefs table documentary on the founder before going - she has an inspiring story and helps you appreciate the dessert so much more (not that you need much help)

Maya Imani: Honestly, quite disappointing. Not with the staff or this particular store but with Milk Bar in general. How do you mess up soft serve? I was expecting “cereal milk” ice cream to be sweet, but it tastes like the milk from corn flakes (yuck). Not sure about any other menu item but if the ice cream isn’t good, can anything else be?

Jeff White: I tried this spot since my usual spot on 13th is now closed. The ice cream did not disappoint. They were out of corn flakes toppings so I went with cinnamon toast toppings. I loved it but not as good as corn flakes. Also surprised they had a parking lot.

Jamey Sadownick: Eek. I love red velvet cheesecake and had been seeing ads on social media for Milk Bar’s version. It tastes good, but nothing extraordinary. The very average-sized slice you see here is $10. Really not worth it. Cheesecake Factory’s version is less expensive and considerably more decadent and delicious. This left me feeling meh.

keith singleton: Ordered from uber eats. And omg gluten free options finally! Got the marshmallow cookie and bday cake both gluten free specifically. The cookie is freaking amazing I regret not getting the 3 pack. I havent tried the gluten free cake yet. Am grateful to have another gluten free dessert option cuz not many places offer this for those of us with celiac disease.

Merissa Pemberton: Lavondae D was wonderful! The red velvet cake was definitely worth trying. The milk bar pie was most definitely not worth trying. Disappointed in the cost compared to how thin and small the slice was.

Love EJ: Unique flavor of soft serve items and cake.Strawberry shortcake is really good.

Hanna Foreman: Was a big fan of the owner before coming here and thought the concept was a good idea. Came here over the summer for some ice cream on a hot, swampy DC day. Many of the desserts were sitting on the counter prepackaged and wrapped in plastic. Ordered a cereal soft serve in a cone with no extras that came out to $6. Way too expensive for something basic without a lot of flavor or toppings. Staff was not too friendly and probably will not return.

Josh Dailey: The cookies and the cake are unbelievable. I know sometimes they can be a little dry, but for the most part my experiences have been super positive. Cake price is pretty standard for a good cake, which in general is just expensive. I’d definitely go if you’re in the area, get the compost cookie! I’ve tried them all, as you can see in my pictures, and my top 3 are compost cookie, confetti cookie, and blueberry & cream cookie. Don’t miss out!

C Ark: Stopped by before they closed. They were very friendly and helpful. Prices are a bit ridiculous for a slice of cake and pie ($17 total) but at least the cake was a decent size (pie slice was tiny). Both the cake and pie were delicious.
