Compliments To The Chef

Your life is a balancing act. Juggling work, kids, house duties, sports and other activities.

Like you, I know what it's like to come home after a long day at work and answer the question, “What’s for dinner?” 

You want to pull together a healthy, quality, home cooked meal for your family that everyone feels good about.

you're busy and haven't quite figured how to do all. The. Things.

Physical and mental exhaustion

Poor planning due to long working hours


Your family has picky eaters

No help or support in the kitchen

Lack of recipes and new ideas

What's holding you back from home cooking?

Fear of messing up and wasting food

Your teen doesn't eat anything you make

I’ve been a professional chef for over 25 years, cooking in the kitchens of luxury hotels, resorts, and five-star restaurants. I've been under the wings of some of the most renowned chefs in New York like David Bouley of Bouley Bakery, Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin, and Jean-Georges Vongerichten of Jean-Georges.

During the pandemic, I pivoted my expertise to host virtual cooking classes to bring families like you to learn new skills, make delicious meals, and create lasting memories together.

more about me

sure, I'm a chef...but at the end of the day, I'm a husband and father of two.

Your schedule is busy and hectic. I hear you. I get it.  

What if I told you that you can cook (and actually enjoy it), learn different cuisines and craft wonderful meals (that beg to be repeated) for your friends and family?

After running a hotel kitchen all day, I run my home kitchen at night.

What if those recipes tempted even the pickiest of eaters in your family?

What if your kids were actually excited to help out because they were learning real skills and preparing a delicious meal alongside you that you're both proud of, so now you can sit around the table, talk about your day and enjoy dinnertime once again?

what if the legwork was already done for you, Recipes have been tried, tested and mastered, so that all you had to do was follow along step-by-step?

You'll never have to worry about dinnertime again.

...and resorted to cooking something from our recipe book that we made with Chef.”

“we've truly thought twice every time we decided to get take out...

- Abby

“My son felt so proud of both the results and getting to share his delicious creation with the whole family. He can’t wait to sign up for another one of Chef Rafael’s classes!”

- Jennifer

“My daughter loved this class. She said rolling the egg rolls was her favorite part because it was calming and methodical. She made 10 and they were all gone before her order brother could run downstairs to get his share!”

- Melissa

“My daughter has taken many of Rafael’s classes and has thoroughly enjoyed them all. He is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and makes every child feel valued. On top of that, his recipes are always delicious and these enchiladas are no exception! We will definitely be making them on a regular basis.”

- Jacob B.

"another fantastic night of cooking with chef raf. this meal was broken down into simple steps that my son easily followed. chef raf engages with each child to ensure they all feel included. he is by far our favorite instructor to take classes with. he has a passion for cooking and it really shines through when he talks to the students and gives them advice.
