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.

Mangia DC Food Tours: what do users think?


Mo Wakefield: We went on the Georgetown Foodie Tour yesterday and it was great. Marsha was an excellent tour guide and was very knowledgeable about Georgetown history and the food we tried. I’ve been on other food tours where you have tastes/samples at a number of places. This one was different because we only went to 4 places -but had a full serving of the food we were tasting. It was wonderful really getting to experience the food - and ended up needed a bag to take leftovers!! We’ll definitely do a Mangia Tour again- can’t wait for the Italian tour!

Karen McIntosh: Love love loved our Mangia DC Food Tour! Really enjoyed the restaurant choices and the stories behind them. The food was plentiful and delicious. McKendrey was a fantastic tour guide - fun, friendly, knowledgeable! Highly recommend!

Dawn Matthews: We had the best time today, touring Georgetown’s gorgeous streets with our incredibly personable and knowledgeable hosts McEndrey and Dave! The peroski and veggie taco were the bomb! Loved seeing Julia Child’s home in this gorgeous area of DC.

Simone Ireland: It was a wonderful experience walking through the beautiful neighborhoods of Georgetown. We heard some very interesting stories about the history of the city, the structures, and many fun facts. But let's talk about the food. The food offerings were delicious and filling. I'm glad we were walking because I had to work up an appetite for between stops. Shannon was very knowledgeable and gracious to the entire group! If you're a foodie or have never tried a food tour, this is a great experience!

Heather Wasson: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ValueWe did the Georgetown Foodie tour. I really liked the smaller group size. It was very informative and Shannon, the tour guide, kept us engaged. It was the perfect balance of learning, walking, socializing, and eating. The food choices were so yummy! We’re local (from MD) and still learned so much. Highly recommended!

Butch Gaddy: We had a great time with Marsha. She’s a very knowledgeable guide. The food was good and so many points of Georgetown history and interest. Great way to spend an afternoon!

J Shedd: Fun facts and tasty afternoon exploring Georgetown, McKendree was friendly and is clearly a big fan of her city. Come hungry, you gets lots of food (and good vegetarian options). Thumbs up!

Marine B: I absolutely loved this tour ! Huge portions of food. You can be sure that you will not still be hungry afterwards. Marsha's knowledge and kindness were also why I appreciated this tour. Thank you very much Mangia DC Food Tours !

Kim C: My husband and I truly enjoyed Marsha' historical knowledge of the area and the background information about our food stops. The food and drink options were great that we went back to one of them after the tour to buy some goodies. We are locals and we thought that this tour was a hidden gem. We cannot wait to go on another tour!

William Johnson: We held a Paint Nite for a group of students and they absolutely loved the event and were so happy with their paintings! Jude was our instructor and was incredible and Dave did an amazing job as the MC of the night. I am so impressed with how they both worked off each other and kept everyone entertained while also making sure everyone was caught up with the painting. We are so glad to have connected with this company and hope we can continue to provide this event to our future participants. The team at Mangia DC made it so easy to set up and I cannot thank them enough for catering to all of our requests. Service: Corporate events

Tiny Chefs: what do users think?


Linda Brown: I cannot express how pleased I was with my grandson's experience with Tiny Chefs. The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly at Dawson's Market. Natalia (the instructor) was bubbly and full of energy. She made the experience fun as the children cooked. My grandson is an aspiring Masterchef Junior so he had a GREAT time!! We will be going back. I appreciate the experience.
Response: Yay!! Thank you for your post and feedback!

Julya Fridman: I invited Tiny Chefs to conduct a cooking class at my home in CT for my daughter’s birthday party. She and all 11 of her 4-10 year old guests greatly enjoyed the party! In fact, after the class was over, my daughter requested to do it again next year. For 2 hours, two Tiny Chefs staff members were working with the kids, allowing adults (parents) some time to catch up and the best part was that the kids got to enjoy their own creations at the end. I would highly recommend Tiny Chefs!
Response: Awesome, thank you much!

Lauren Barber: I cannot say enough positive things about Tiny Chefs. My son came home so enthusiastic about cooking. He insisted on making an entire meal including dessert for the entire family. The employees couldn't have been more friendly and were so helpful to the children in addition, it was very well run. We will definitely sign up for another class!!!
Response: Thank you so much for your comments and will look forward to seeing your son again!!

Kristina Woo: I signed my son up for a summer camp hosted by tiny chefs. He really loved it, and he is one to do something one day and not want to return the next; but this time he kept wanting to go back!! He had confidence in the things they taught him and was excited to share! I will definitely be sending him to more classes hosted by Tiny Chefs!
Response: Yes! We love to inspire. Thank you for your post!

Suzy Ghannam: Wonderful experience! We had a birthday party for my 9 year old and it was loved by all! The girls really felt proud of their work and enjoyed every moment. I had ZERO to worry about! Tiny Chefs did an amazing job! Would highly recommend for those who want a worry-free event!
Response: Thank you very much!

Bethany Clemmons: My 7 year old daughter absolutely loved this program. She enjoys cooking, so we enrolled her in an after-school Tiny Chefs class, and ahe came home every tome bouncing-excited about what she'd made. We also get the recipes through email, so they can make their favorites again at home. Thanks!

Carolyn Fruzzetti: My daughter really enjoys the Tiny Chefs camps. The curriculum is well-planned and the staff is professional. I am a culinary school graduate and am pleased with the educational and fun cooking environment (where they clean up their own mess!).
Response: Thank you for your comments! We really appreciate the time you took to provide us with feedback. We look forward to seeing your daughter at a future event!

Elise Kohan: Tiny Chefs came into our school to teach our students how to make a healthy meal without using electricity. The students learned that they can create a meal for themselves when their parents are not home. This cooking experience fostered their creativity and teamwork skills. Our Chefs came into the classroom with experience and behavior management skills. I will definitely book Tiny Chefs again to use for our school's Cooking Term.
Response: Thank you so much for your awesome review!

Thomas Page, Jr: My 10 year old loved it- evidently one of her favorite summer camps- ever! Had to order her to bring some of her efforts home as she kept eating everything she made; and what she brought back was delicious! She now wants to go to more baking and cooking based camps.
Response: I love this, very exciting to hear and our personal goal is for our campers to be inspired. Thank you for sharing.

tom parkins: My 3 year old daughter likes pizza and chocolate pudding so I signed us for up for the Tiny Chefs "Pizza & Dirt with Dad" event at Mamma Lucia’s in Bethesda. The online ad looked good and even included a video of kids making & baking personal size pizzas at their events. So I paid the $60 event fee and went to Mamma Lucia’s on Father’s Day. We quickly learned that the ‘pizza’ was actually a small, cold, flour tortilla with raw toppings; that’s right, unbaked ‘pizza’ at an Italian Pizza restaurant. While sitting at the table in disbelief with other parents, I double checked the Tiny Chefs website on my cell phone. After scrolling thru the ad again, the word “pizza” appeared 7 times and at the very bottom of the ad in small print it did say “Pizza, Pizza Roll Up” however there was no mention of an ‘unbaked’ pizza product. My daughter took two bites and threw it away. I mentioned our dissatisfaction to the instructor at the event and she said that ‘she just works there but she would tell management.’ Not confident that would happen, I sent an email to Tiny Chefs management, not something I wanted to do on Father’s Day. Needless to say, after receiving six patronizing emails from them over the next few days, I was informed that they decided to offer an ‘unbaked’ pizza product for safety reasons but chose not to disclose that in their ads; that is misleading! So I googled images of ‘Pizza Roll Ups’ and all of the pictures show baked pizza roll ups. But management dismissed that and felt that $60 was reasonable for a cold, flour tortilla with raw toppings. Really??? So to appease me, I was offered a coupon good towards a future purchase of another Tiny Chefs event worth $30. And risk putting myself through another experience like this with misleading advertising, overpriced ‘pizza’ (or similar food product) and receive yet more dismissive communications from their corporate office? No thank you. So parents, Buyer Beware of Tiny Chefs. Read the fine print & ask questions before purchasing because they don’t offer a customer satisfaction guarantee; and once they have your credit card number, your money is gone. Avoid the disappointment, misleading advertising, overpriced food, unscrupulous business practices and aggravation in dealing with a condescending management team. I just discovered that Wegmans offers a kids cooking class for $10 where you get a large, hot pizza – imagine that! Caveat Emptor!
Response: Thanks for your review Tom. We always aim to please our kids and parents and know you were sadly disappointed with the menu option. We have implemented a customer satisfaction guarantee and hope you will return to a future Tiny Chefs event!

Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital: what do users think?


Austin Graff: The Hill Center is a great gathering place for Capitol Hill community events. They offer an array of events from cooking classes, to tastings, to live music and even have art exhibits on premise. A few months ago, Bayou Bakery opened on the premises and it upped their cool factor. Even if you don't swing by, make sure you snap a photo or two as you walk by. It's beautiful at night!
Response: Thanks so much for all of the kind words!

Lindy Campbell: A beautiful place to visit- horrible to rent from. The staff is completely incapable of handling small problems and instead compound them into huge ones. Don't bother complaining the next day- they will simply blame you for the whole thing and probably throw in a couple personal insults as well.
Response: Hi Lindy, Like we said on Facebook, we're so sorry that you had a negative experience. Diana, our executive director, will be in touch. -MM

Pei-Hsuen Liao: Beautiful place to stop by and enjoy the sunshine.

Jimmy Sylakowski: Nice rental center.

Hill's Kitchen: what do users think?


Jessica McNutt: I love, love, love, love, love this shop. When I visit, I feel like family. The staff is wonderful, and knowledgeable and amazingly friendly and supportive. What's more, they sell high quality and unique products. This is the only place I'll ever go for all my kitchen needs. If you haven't had a chance to visit Hill's, you are missing out.

Katharine Dixon: Today we bought a Chef's knife. Great store with a nicely curated selection of all things kitchen. Very very much appreciated expertise and help in choosing the knife.

Felicia Adkins: What a great little store. It may look small from the outside but they have a lot of very good quality items in there. And surprisingly fun kitchen finds like state shaped epicurean cutting boards and capital shaped cookie cutters knowledgeable and friendly staff to help you with suggestions. Everything from spices and seasonings to pans and quality knives. What a fantastic local business!

Sam Odle: Excellent selection of kitchen related goods for how small it is. Definitely worth stopping in if you’re looking for something or need a gift.

J Haus: I love this store!! They have pretty much anything you could need as a home cook. They have a great selection of cookbooks, too. The staff are super helpful and friendly.

Barbara Bonessa: Leah Daniels is very helpful and knowledgeable, and has a wonderful shop filled with all things kitchen.

Gabriel Charles Tyler: I’m still relatively new to the DMV area, so I’m always excited to explore new neighborhoods and shops. My friend raves about Hill’s Kitchen, and now I know why! It’s a small space, but it’s quaint and is filled with so many kitchen and household items that you probably wouldn’t find anywhere else. On top of that, the staff members at Hill’s Kitchen exude positivity. And they’re always willing to help you find just the item you’re looking for. For example, all I knew was that I needed a cutting board that I saw at a friend’s house with a “m” on it. The team member who jumped in to assist me immediately knew what I was talking about and she made the cutting board appear like magic. She even went as far to explain to me the price differences. I’m so impressed with the selection and the quality of service! This shop will definitely be at the top of my list from now on.

Meredith Purser: Great store! Leah is always friendly and helpful, and she keeps her store stocked with all the basic (and many not-so-basic) kitchen needs and seasonal desires.

dipika: Hill's Kitchen seems to be an important store to the local community, and I love that the owners are friendly with people in the neighborhood! They carry a wide range of products that make me super excited to decorate my kitchen. I'm so glad this place exists, and just wish some of the staple items were a bit less expensive.

Sarah Snoots: Awesome, awesome, awesome experience from start to finish. Leah is so knowledgeable about every single item in her store and was exceptionally patient while I figured out what type of knives I was looking for. Her expertise and clear explanations helped me really narrow down my options. I look forward to purchasing more cookware in the future because I know —without a doubt— that I can ask Leah and get straight answers. She had all of them! Additionally, she took numerous COVID precautions, including requiring masks covering the nose and mouth of all customers, limiting the number of customers to four (not four “groups” ie households, but four people— full stop.), maintaining an appropriate distance, and ensuring each customer used hand sanitizer upon entering. Highly recommend a trip Hill’s Kitchen for anyone who spends time in a kitchen or home. So. Anyone reading this! Check it out.
