    Cooking Classes

    There are many kinds of food professionals, from chefs to cookbook authors and teachers to television personalities.

    Prepare fresh pasta and polenta. Learn about different grains such as couscous and quinoa. Have you ever made your own fresh stocks? Foodini's can show you the proper way to extract full flavor into your broth for soups, stews, and sauces. There are no schools in existence which will give you one on one professional training. Lessons can be held at Foodini’s commissary OR right in your own home! It’s always relaxed and fun.

    Chef John offers one-on-one, interactive cooking lessons, demo-style cooking classes and combination cooking classes/dinner parties where you will prepare the meal together as a group, then the Chef serves you at the table answering any of your culinary questions.

    Hear from our customers

    • I wasn’t sure that my husband was going to appreciate the value of your service. Well let me tell you that your food is exceptional and my husband agrees that we may even be SAVING money what with all the food that goes to waste in my refrigerator that I promise I’m going to cook each week. You really have changed our lives John, and my family thanks you for that. See you next week!

      Martha B – Edison, NJ | Personal Chef Service

    • I’ve struggled with diets my whole life. The hardest part is finding the time and energy to prepare the meals my body requires. You have been able to follow my dietary needs for breakfast, lunch and dinner and I am already down 20 pounds since August. Words cannot say how grateful I am. You have a client for life. Sincerely,

      Tara P- Red Bank, NJ | Personal Chef Service

    • Bill and I really enjoy the variety you offer. Your menu is so extensive and we get to try new things all the time. I don’t think we’ve had the same dish twice in the 8 months you’ve been cooking for us. You’ve really got this service down pat. Thanks for everything!

      Sue L – Belmar, NJ | Personal Chef Service

    • Owning a business, we both work long hours and have very little time for anything else, including preparing dinner for my family. You have relieved me of this burden and have prepared some of the best meals we’ve ever had. The varieties are endless. We’re so glad we found you and were able to bring our family back around the table for home cooked meals without having to do any of the cooking or clean up!

      Janice W- Marlboro, NJ | Personal Chef Service

    • I wasn’t sure what to expect as my past experiences with meal delivery services were horrifying. The meals tasted “mass produced” and flavorless. Your food is so delicious. You can taste the quality and freshness and it’s so easy to follow your heating instructions. You truly are magical!

      Mary M- Freehold, NJ | Personal Chef Service

    • This service is wonderful ! The food is delicious, convenient and so easy to heat that even my kids can make dinner for themselves if I’m running late. I wish I knew about your service YEARS ago!
