Monika is a superb instructor. We were attempting to make croissants and she made us all feel as though we were master bakers. She has a positive vibe and is incredibly helpful and informative.
I would take another class from her any time.

· Arrangement and Composition · In studio
Bridget worked with me to compose a new piece for an acapella arrangement for nearly 20 people. The original piece was a pop rock song with one singer, a piano, guitar, bass, and drums.

Prior to her lesson and assistance, I had never arranged a musical piece before, though I could read and write music and was able to plunk out a few notes.

Bridget was patient, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be reaching out to Bridget again for additional lessons!

About Christian
Chef Christian Bonilla Culinary Bio
From a young age I had a passion for everything food. Everything. My Spanish ancestry passed on the love of food and cooking as well. Family gatherings have always revolved around the menu and cooking. As a Spanish Language major in college, I studied abroad and devoured the Spanish culture and cuisine. Traveling throughout US broadened my horizons to other cuisines as well.

Eventually, I turned my passion into my career path and attended culinary school at The Restaurant School of Miami, a classical French culinary school. I absorbed all the techniques to prepare me for a culinary career. While in school, one of my classmates mentioned the new field of "Personal Cheffing". From that point on, my goal was to eventually have my own Personal Chef business with a focus on healthy cuisines.

Aft
er apprenticing at various types of food establishments, including the five-star Zuma Restaurant and a healthy foods catering company in Puerto Rico,
I settled back in New York City and started my Personal Chef Business.

Focusing on special diets has been a natural progression for my business. I have spent much time taking classes and reading materials related to diet and health. When I have a new client with a health condition unfamiliar to me, I spend some time researching this condition, for my own education. I will use the diet information from my client's healthcare provider or nutritionist, and use my culinary knowledge to prepare healing foods that promote my client's wellness.

I have worked with clients who have had Multiple Food Allergies, Parkinson's Disease, Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Gluten Free and Dairy Free diets, and Diabetes, to name a few. As I work with a client they start learning about healthy foods, and how to incorporate nutritious foods into everyday. My personal commitment to my business and clients is to continue to learn and study about the relationship of food, health and nutrition. I find these subjects fascinating. I whole heartily incorporate this commitment into the meals I prepare for my clients, to continue to help them maintain vibrant health.

About Lian
I am a food lover, always searching for great things to taste even when not working. I enjoy learning about new ingredients; how to eat them, how to cook them and the history behind them.

Over the years I have realized how food can tell so much about a place and its people which is why I decided to pursue a career in the food industry. I can give you tips and tricks which will help you realize cooking is not too hard as long as you have the passion and determination to make beautifully tasting dishes.
My experience is solid with Mexican cuisine especially tacos. In my hometown Chicago, I have been working with a restaurant concept of new and exciting tacos. We use the humble tortilla as a vessel to transport some of the most delicious fillings from all over the world, while leaving the traditional staples of Mexican Cuisine shine on th
e menu.

I can organize to fulfill the needs of each individual student. The food world is very large, but depending on the interest of the student we can head on a path and part from there.

My curriculum will be based on the basics and according to experience/ability of each:
Safety
Knife handling/Skills
Cooking Techniques

I can't wait to show you a taste of what it's like to be chef! I have plenty of stories about kitchen life and my travels. The most important thing to remember is to have fun, enjoy the moment and never stop learning, because everyday has something new to offer!
