    We had a truly wonderful evening with Daniel for his Spanish paella and tapas cooking class. The class was held in a spacious, lovely loft in downtown la. Daniel gave us a memorable cooking class. As delicious as the meal that we made was, the highlight for me was Daniel’s outstanding teaching style and his deep knowledge of the cooking process. Things I’ve done in the kitchen for years without knowing exactly why….he explained. An outstanding education for any foodie or amateur chef. Once the meal was made, we sat down to a lovely meal. Daniel is also a gracious host, throwing together some impromptu snacks with bits left over from the planned meal. In sum, 5 star class, 5 star meal, and 5+ star host…..

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Initial contact discussing specific needs and orientarion towards which classes would serve these.

If possible and available, discuss customization of classes, if the student wishes to turn the event into a private class.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I'm a grauate of culinary school and have been teaching for a long time.

After moving to my loft I started teaching full time and have done so very succesfully earning glowing reviews from participants in my classes.

Classes are typically $99 per person, with a premium for turning the class into a private class. There is a minimum of 2 people required to hold the class unless the participant is willing to pay for two seats. 

The premium for a private class depends on how many people will participate.

Some classes that require more expensive ingredients are offered at a slightly higher cost.


How did you get started teaching?

I got started teaching many years ago, although in a different field. During and after culinary school I took under my wing several fellow students who encouraged me to go into teaching cooking full time. After moving and equipping my loft specifically to teach cooking I started to do this full time. I have had several hundred participants earning 5 star glowing reviews from the large majority of students.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have had all kinds of people walk through my doors, from as young as 8 years old to adults of all ages, wether novices or experienced cooks. Since my classes are fully hands on everyone leaves with renewed confidence to attempt the dishes we make during class in their own environment.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Just yesterday I had a group of 9 people learning to make NY Style pizza, with several New Yorkers in the crowd, everyone telling me that I transported them back to their roots, after years of trying to find in Los Angeles  the New York pizza they grew up with no success.
