About this pro

Chef and nutritional advisor teaches you to cook healthy but not compromising the flavor. Who said healthy was not delicious? Chef HDZ felt the love towards the art of good cooking from his childhood, mainly in family reunions and thanks to the teachings of his mother. Chef HDZ has twenty years of diversified experience ranging from fast food to full dining restaurants like: Olive Garden, La Madeline, Benihana Japanese Steak and Sushi, Aparicio's Mexican Restaurant, Taco Cabana, Whataburger, Peter Piper Pizza and McDonald's. He obtained his Nutritional Adviser certification approved by the FDA and DSHEA "Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act," while working for a combined 10 years of experience at Vitamin World (NBTY Inc) and Sprouts Farmer's Market.

I enjoy and love teaching basic knife skills to a variety of simple but elegant dishes from Mexico, USA, Japanese, Central America and Italian.

    Fabulous experience! I bought the lesson as a gift for a friend who does not cook. She and her son wanted to learn so they could do more home cooking together. Such a valuable life skill to be able to make healthy / flavorful menu items! Chef was great. Taught them basic skills, how to use their own equipment, how to select produce, knife skills and preparation. Food was great. We will be hiring him to help them with more recipes!
