We love sharing our experience during cooking lessons with friends, families, kids, or coworkers. Our cooking workshops not only provide you with ingredients, but teach you about the techniques and stories behind the meal.
In this age of both intense interest in cooking and hurried, busy lives, we believe in moving slowly and deliberately. Only in this way can we fully engage ourselves in cooking and regain the connection that we have lost over the years in our craving for shortcuts, quick fixes, and processed ingredients. To respect the food, we believe we have to take more time and greater care in cooking. We keep the experience memorable and fresh not merely by piling on ingredients but by focusing more on specific flavors. Only then can the final product or experience be as delicious as possible.
We hired Chef Ashok to do a dinner party for my mom’s 60th birthday and the experience of absolutely amazing. He was so easy to work with, such a professional, and helped us plan the entire evening. The food was incredible, we truly felt like we were eating at a 5 star restaurant in our own home. We cannot recommend him enough!
Chef Ashok did a beautiful job preparing our catch of rainbow trout from earlier that same day. Each course was beautifully presented, coupled with an explanation of the ingredients and some history. He was fantastic with my 6 year old nephew, and treated all of us like dignitaries. Chef Ashok has earned my highest praise for his skill, knowledge, and personality.
I was part of an amazing 6 course fusion dinner last night. The flavors and descriptions were so engaging. Can’t wait to experience more! Highly recommend.
Chef Ashok's culinary genius and passion for giving people the very best experience every time is unmistakable! But, the biggest reason I love his work is what he stands for. He stands for believing in oneself and pursuing one's dreams, no matter the odds. Growing up in rural India, he's let the fire of dreams fueled by hard work guide where he is today. Yet, you would never know any of it with his ability to engage customers of all walks with his inimitable and engaging conversations. He also believes passionately in bringing nourishment to those without the means. Wishing him the very best!
From the first contact with Chef Ashok Nageswaran I knew I had made an excellent decision to hire him for our special dinner party. He was very responsive to our dietary needs and created a unique menu to please our tastebuds. We were able to enjoy ourselves while fine dining in our own home. What could be better than that?Thank you Chef Ashok!
