Elegant Eating - The perfect name for a most wonderful and memorable experience. My daughter surprised me with an Elegant Eating cooking class gift for her and I to attend. We decided, after considering all of the wide variety of cooking classes offered, to attend the New York Steakhouse one. I must tell you, as a reviewer/critic in the hospitality industry, I was more than impressed from beginning to end. Upon entering, we were greeted by the owners, offered delicious appetizers and fresh lemonade and entertained in a stunning, beautifully decorated dining room. We then went to the kitchen area, which was spotless, where Myra ( owner and head chef for very good reasons ) and her chefs visually and verbally showed us how we were going to prepare each part of the menu. We then broke up into groups whereby each group had to prepare that particular part of the dinner. We were then asked to return to the lovely, I mean lovely, dining room where we were served, course by course, the dinner we had all prepared. The presentation of each course was picture perfect. It was fun, a great learning experience and delicious! I am thrilled to have experienced this with my daughter as it adds to our legacy of beautiful memories. I am definitely a returning customer and I will also be buying birthday and Christmas Elegant Eating cooking class gift certificates for family and friends. This is an excellent gift idea. I highly recommend Elegant Eating! Thank you to my daughter for surprising me with such a perfect, unique gift and to Neil and Myra for being the designers of this wonderful idea.

Thank you so much for a wonderful and fun way to spend time with my mom. My sisters and I took my mom to the "It's all Greek to Me" cooking class and loved it. your staff is friendly, fun and we learned so much. Plus the food was Delicious!! I had such a great time that I returned for the "Steak and Cake" class with my husband and my mom and dad. We learned to make the best carrot cake ever. It has quickly become a family favorite. Thanks again and I am looking forward to returning soon.

I can't wait for the next class!

I wanted to thank you for a fabulous evening. We brought our friends with us and all of us had a wonderful time. Your class was a perfect combination of learning new cooking skills, cooking new recipes, making new friends, a fun night out, and a delicious meal. How would we go about trying to get a whole class full of our friends to come? Thank you again and we will definitely see you soon.

I came to the BBQ class last Thursday night as a single and was a little nervous to say the least. I want you to know I had such a wonderful time taking your class and meeting the other attendees. I learned a lot from you and have already used some of your recipes and techniques! Most of all, I had a lot of fun and will recommend that friends and family give your classes a try. Thank you so much!

Hi Neil,

I just wanted to thank you and your staff for a most enjoyable evening. My daughter and I came to your class May 12th - Steak and Cake. I'm sure you'll remember us. First of all, it was a gift from my daughter to me for my birthday and Mothers Day. And we were the ones that kind of got lost!! We had a blast. I can't wait to come back. And I will!! Everyone else was so friendly.... Again, thank you for a great evening. I will be passing the word around and what a fun evening this is. Please forward our thanks to everyone.

Thank you for a great birthday day/Mothers Day.

Thank you so much for such an enjoyable evening. Both my husband and daughter say"Ditto."

As an amateur cook and retired teacher, I was so impressed with how organized the whole experience was, and I loved learning new things to use when cooking myself.

Everyone we met on your staff was was the best!

Attended cooking class last night for steak and lobster. Had a grand time learning, cooking and making new friends. Dinner was great and took leftovers home! Thank you to our hosts. Had a fantastic time enjoying the opportunity which was a Christmas gift from Marc & Cate!

Hi Myra and Neil, 

I just wanted to drop a note letting you know what a wonderful time we had last night.  Everyone really enjoyed themselves.  We look forward to doing it again sometime soon.  I will be sure to pass the word along... what a great idea for a special birthday celebration.

By the way, I am making the salad dressing and rice balls for my company tonight!  They are both sure to be a big hit. 

 
Warm regards,
Trish Koppelman

Dear Myra and Neil,

What a hit!  Every person has emailed me and repeatedly said they loved the evening, were wowed by the recipes, and want to do it again.

When is the new schedule going to be out?  I thought that we might want to schedule an Italian night as several talked about the Tuscan class or an Italian dinner party.  I'll check the schedule and see what we might want to reschedule for this group again. 

Now that they emailed me back, ... all the other people that couldn't make it that night are now upset that they couldn't attend.  They want to know when this will happen again.  I am hoping that several of the younger girls will start to ask their friends to do this as well. 

Thanks again for such a great evening.  It was perfection!!!

What more could we ask?  Our 2 cooking classes with you were OUTSTANDING in every way!  Thank you so very much for sharing your facilities, your staff, yourselves, your delicious food, your warm personalities, and your expertise! 

Thank you again!  We’ll be back!

With Best Regards,

Re: Corporate Team Building Cooking Class

Participated as a corporate team function one evening. Staff is awesome. We were given a brief overview, tips and menu review. From there we broke into groups and all cooked various items. Then they played and served us the meal. Really fun group activity!

Myra, Neil and Staff:

I loved our Date Night (cooking class) with you last week. Many thanks for the great time and great information.

l have since made the salmon dish and it was terrific! I improvised with the lemon cream/sauce and it was fine, but if you get a chance, please send me the ingredients in proper proportions for the cream. Thanks.

Also, I confess, I HATE fish. I NEVER eat it. I think it is a combination of the smell and the bones and coming from the Midwest where fresh fish was not so common. I did not choose to work with the salmon group because I did not want to touch the salmon or smell it. When it was served to me, I was a bit embarrassed and decided to sample it and then pass it on to my Neal or else just leave it. Well, I loved it! And, no smell! So I have made it this past week and tonight I made another salmon dish with a puff pastry (I need to sharpen my skills with that recipe before I share it, but it was better than just edible!). So, thanks for turning me on to salmon!

Also, thanks for the vegan cookbook. Lots of recipes in it look good to me, I want to try a few and possibly purchase a copy.

See you soon, I hope.

- Roseann & Neil

Your "Soup for the Soul" cooking class was wonderful - I truly enjoyed the learning experience and entire atmosphere (the food was also great!).  I have shared your cooking class calendar with others and hope I can bring more friends along next time.

Just a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed the class yesterday. I learned a lot -- and I loved the matzo dessert -- I'm definitely going to make it!! (salad looked gorgeous too).

You were a spectacular teacher and I look forward to many more classes with you.
