Cookology Buzz

We're in sunny Los Angeles this week for Richard Branson's PERFECT PITCH conference!

Our pitch was named in the TOP TEN out of more than one thousand entries!

Yesterday Branson told the audience that the Top Ten were chosen based on his personal philosophy of what makes a great business: one that INFLUENCES, INSPIRES and HELPS others!

We're honored to have been chosen, and we've loved getting to meet other interesting and inspiring entrepreneurs from across the country.

Branson isn't the only one giving props to Cookology.
Check out what our students are saying!

“I want to start by saying, “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” From my first phone call to you my experience with Cookology has been tremendous. As you know, our book club read Julie and Julia and we wanted to have a private Julia Child inspired cooking class. You were accommodating and wonderful to deal with. I bombarded you with phone calls, questions and special requests, but you were always patient and kind. Our group of 12 met this past Tuesday for a wonderful night of learning, fun and amazing food. Everyone enjoyed every minute. Chef Ian was entertaining, knowledgeable, skilled and patient with us. We learned many new techniques and had fun doing it! What could be better than cooking, eating, laughing with friends and not having to clean the kitchen? Thank you again and we are looking forward to our next class!”
–Jeri H. & Book Club Friends

“I was truly impressed with the meals that came home, and my daughter has never been so excited to cook! You all did a fabulous job with the kids! Thank you! And we cannot wait until she uses the recipes and her newly learned skills to recreate the food!”
–Jenny H.

“We had an incredible party at Cookology! My daughter and her friends had a great time! Thank you for helping make yummy food and a fun party, but mostly for making lasting and special memories of her turning 6!”
–Shannon B.

“I’ve been so impressed with the facility and staff. It’s a professional-grade kitchen, and one that’s kept very clean. I love the fact that you use natural ingredients and don’t take shortcuts, so that my son is being trained to create dishes from scratch.Equally important to me has been the staff; all very friendly. The chefs are excellent, creative, and know how to instruct the kids. They even email the recipes so the kids can recreate the dishes at home! We’ve been so pleased…I highly recommend them to anyone interested in improving their cooking skills!”"
–Jill P.

“Cookology was great fun! Cannot wait to do it again!”
–Scott Z.

“We took the basic Sushi class at Dulles and loved it. Kids took a camp class and loved it. Can’t wait to get back in there.”
–Dee M.

“My kids loved the pumpkin muffins I brought back home. They were asking for more!”
–Silvana M.

“Everything about it is just right on the mark. The classes are fun and entertaining, you meet new people, get a great meal and walk away with a lot of useful skills.”
–Marty M.

“We were really just blown away right from the start. We had so much fun, and then we got home the very first night we realized we had picked up all these tidbits. How to heat up the pan, when to put the food in, how to properly season with salt and pepper…stuff that is really pretty basic, but makes a world of difference when you learn to do it right.”
–Mel M.
