Chef Za was so great to work with! Her creativity and recipes are indescribable! We thought she couldn’t get any better, that was until she hosted the live cooking class! She was so patient and she made sure everyone was following along throughout the class. Chef Za kept us so entertained during the class that it seemed like the time flew by! We would highly recommend using her services for your event, she is a joy to work with!  -Jordan, Kouple Connect

My company invited Chef Za to host a cooking class via zoom during the pandemic. Although I didn’t cook along with others, I enjoyed watching her explain each step, offering helpful cooking tips (add your cayenne to the oil at the beginning!) along the way. Her mac and cheese looked so good, I immediately added the ingredients to my shopping list and made it that weekend. I’ve also made her Southern braised kale – delicious, healthy and very easy to make. Chef Za’s recipes are not only tasty, but carefully crafted, organized and easy to follow.

Chef Za led a cooking experience for my company’s employee resource group on Juneteenth. SHE WAS AMAZING! Not only did she work with us to plan a delicious meal for our members and allies, but she also gave the historical significance of it. Cooking along with her in the kitchen was super fun and easy. She broke things down step-by-step and suggested modifications for those with dietary restrictions. Everyone was pleased! The evening was filled with laughter and happy tummies, thanks to Chef Za!      -Capricia, Sales Force

My son participated in ZaZa’s Cooking Academy last week and he had so much fun and the whole family got to enjoy the results. It was nice to see him enjoying himself in the kitchen and getting to spend quality time with him. He really took the lead cooking with a little support from me. He woke up the next morning excited to make French toast with strawberry sauce for the family. He is already asking when the next class is. -Lorin

After booking a private cooking class with Nzali, she has shown me that there is a creative way to make food tasty and healthy all in one. I was never a salad person but once Nzali taught me her Salmon Kale Salad recipe this all changed. I was looking for food ideas that would last me for a few days especially considering my hectic schedule. This tasty meal would last me 3-4 days depending on how much I prepped. Nzali’s passion for healthy lifestyle while making tasty options has inspired me to continue healthy living while ensuring my food is tasty with seasonings and sauces! -Ciera

I accompanied my 12 year-old cousin during Zaza’s class for kids where she learned how to make french toast. The class was the perfect length and Zaza kept my cousin engaged the entire time. From explaining the intricacies of citrus acids and when to use salt, to the best methods to cut fruit, Zaza made learning how to cook both accessible and fun. Not to mention, the recipe was kid-friendly and delicious! My cousin made the french toast the following day all by herself and there wasn’t a crumb left.

I booked Chef Za for a cooking demo for our corporate employee resource group. Chef Za was so professional, extremely organized, and thoughtful. She worked with me ahead of time to create the menu. Once the menu was established she created a grocery shopping list and list of kitchen materials we would need to create our meal. One menu item required some overnight marination, Chef Za sent over detailed instructions on how to prep the food the night before the demo. We were able to 
send the shopping list and prep instructions out to our employees days prior to the cooking session. This left everyone feeling prepared and equipped to prepare their meals. The session itself was so much fun! Chef Za did an amazing job engaging with everyone and making sure we were all following along. She has one of the best cooking set-ups I have ever seen. She has 2 cameras, one camera on the food and the second camera on her which helped me to see how my food was progressing compared to her’s and I could still see her face as she talked and answered questions. She stopped to answer questions whenever we needed it and gave encouragement when we thought we were falling short. In this time where we are all working from home, it was so great to be able to do something different and cook a meal with my co-workers. It has been several weeks since the demo and some of my co-workers are already asking for us to cook another meal together with Chef Za! Thanks Chef Za for making this virtual session so much fun for our company!

Jackson had a great time! He really enjoyed cooking with Zaza's Kitchen. The recipe was appropriate for first time young cooks, directions were easy to follow and Jackson was eager to get back in the kitchen. We will definitely sign up for another class!-Amijah
