It is very inspiring to discover a chef who is generous with his knowledge. Phoenix is a private chef who offers an extensive range of classes about cooking and nutrition.
We are especially excited about the in-home cooking lessons. My husband and I purchased his romantic dinner package and added his Knife Skills segment, as we each have our own knives – he has Aritsugu carbon steel knives, handmade with wood and bone handles and I have a hand-me-down cleaver and a sharp and shiny Shun knife (I don’t use his knives, and he doesn’t use mine). Phoenix demonstrates and explains the techniques to julienne, chop, cut, bone, as well as the proper way to sharpen knives.
He passed around knives so that we could feel the difference between a knife that is of excellent, good or poor quality. He discussed cutting boards and how to wash them thoroughly to prevent contamination. Phoenix encourages questions and is very engaging. He stepped out from behind the counter to check our efforts as we practiced on the fruits/vegetables with the supplied knives and board.
We highly recommend his cooking lessons for those keen to learn from a real expert. We strongly recommend Phoenix’s classes.
Recently, we took the International Foods class, and we were very inspired! Phoenix walks you through several amazing dishes, alternative options and provided taste samples of many products and final dishes. He is extremely well-informed on all the products on the market and many not even yet on the market. We are privileged to know him, and I know and can see many positive changes in our culinary skills.
