Testimonials

★★★★★
Can’t recommend highly enough! This was a birthday present for my husband (who is so hard to please) and he loved it.

★★★★★
”We had the BEST time learning to cook delicious Greek food! We decided to have a family cooking...”

★★★★★
Not only was Jesse super knowledgeable and patient, the food he made was delicious. He even cleans up after cooking, which is a mega bonus! We had enough leftovers for another meal the next day. After taking his private cooking class, we both feel empowered and enthusiastic to learn and cook more. :)

“My husband and I had a great evening with Jesse. It was entertaining, informative and delicious. Jesse walked us through each step of his recipes and let us put our skills to the test. We learned a lot all while eating delicious food. Thanks Jesse!”

“Thank you, Jesse, for cooking a delicious meal, the food was exceptional and my guests loved it. It’s so nice to get a restaurant quality meal in the comfort of my own home.”

“What an incredible night, THANK YOU!!! We are still raving about the ramen you made, it is seriously better than any ramen shop we have been to! The night was the perfect balance of cooking as well as sitting back and hanging with our friends. Your knowledge of food is admirable and your passion is contagious - we were so excited to learn! Can’t wait to host another cooking party!!”

What will you gain from taking our cooking classes?

  • understanding of ingredients

    We feel that it is important for our students to understand each ingredient and why it's a fundamental part of the dish. 

  • culinary techniques

    An ingredient can be used several different ways. We help our students understand the proper techniques necessary to successfully execute the recipe.

  • confidence in the kitchen

    There is an incredible sense of pride and accomplishment that accompanies an able cook. When you complete a Maker's Kitchen cooking class, you'll have an exciting story to tell, a few photos for your Facebook or Instagram page, and the confidence to tackle some new recipes from your own bookshelf.

Our founder

Maker’s Kitchen was founded in 2016 by chef Jesse Kramer, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute in NYC and founder of the award winning taco concept called Brooklyn Taco Company. Jesse’s success with creating Mexican food landed him his 15 minutes or should I say 30 minutes of fame on Chopped. His aptitude for creating flavor and his vibrant personality led to a breakfast cooking segment on NBC and a 22 episode Taco video series on Howcast. However, his pride and joy moment was becoming Jon Stewart's favorite caterer at the Daily Show. 

Although Jesse misses the intensity, energy and collective culinary knowledge of a restaurant kitchen, the most gratifying feelings came from training new cooks. Jesse created Maker's Kitchen as a way to bridge his enjoyment of teaching others, his appetite for restaurant-quality food, and love for having fun in the kitchen.

A cooking experience you'll never forget

Instead of going out to the same restaurant again to celebrate, switch things up! Our personable chefs will bring delicious recipes, engaging lessons, and a one-of-a-kind culinary experience.
