Professionally and formally trained as a I have worked in top restaurants around the world such as Wolfgang Puck. I will teach you how to cook, use your knife, and have a wide range of expertise such as classical & modern French, Italian, Asian, European, vegetarian & vegan.

I LOVE to cook! And I enjoy teaching others how to cook because I believe that food brings people together. I want to share my 19 years of experience with my students and to teach them how to cook easily & effortlessly. I take the intimidation factor out of the cooking process and make it super simple that anyone can cook like a pro. My goal is to be able to leave the student with the right tools for success in their home kitchen, hone their knife skills, be able to read a recipe book, and most importantly for the student to be able to understand the fundimentals of cooking and being able to create their own dishes.

    He really took the time to explain each and every step and following up making sure all of your questions are answered.

    Decided to take a class with some friends to up our game in the kitchen. You think you know how to properly cook a steak until you meet Chef Brik!! Basting anyone? Who knew! I also never knew how to properly/efficiently use a knife to not waste time during prep; one of the major reasons I rarely cook at home. Chef Brik really helped me hone in my knife skills!! Thank you for your patience with me and for all the incredible tips! I will be back!

    Chef Brik was worth every dollar. I wanted to learn how to meal prep for myself for the week and he taught me how to prepare healthy food that actually tastes good and enjoyable.

  • Johnny

    He was very informative and made it very easy to learn how to cook. I am 13 years old and now I feel confident to cook for myself and my family. He is the best and I want to learn more from him!
