“I went to another class a year ago, but it was not interactive. I like the way
you allow us intimate contact with the cooking process—tasting as we go, giving different
options, talking about ingredients, smelling and touching.
Class was also very inspirational. It got me to make tilapia, which I had always
wanted to do. I also got confidence to try more expensive ingredients, and use them
successfully so I’m not wasting.
I liked your informal teaching style. I don’t feel like just a student, but more
a part of the action and I get to ask my questions. I really liked all the information
