Great private cooking class! Pam answered all our questions and was patient and a wonderful teacher! Can't wait for our next class with her.Apr 21, 2016Verified
My dad and I worked with Pam for a cooking lesson so that he could learn some basic kitchen skills and I could learn a little something as well. Pam was great! Not only did we get a lesson on some basic and easy dishes explained in a patient yet fun way (my dad has really never cooked before), but it was educational as well regarding nutrition and some healthier alternatives to common ingredients. She has changed some of my cooking patterns in just one session. We both learned a lot, had a super fun time and are looking forward to our next lesson. She has many excellent topics to choose from. I definitely recommend her without reservation!Jan 9, 2016Verified
Easy, nutritious meal done quickly! The protein bars taste like brownies!!Jan 4, 2016Verified
I attended the veggie-slaws class. It was a one-hour session. The dishes were simple enough to make at home on my own, healthy and tasty! Pam's teaching method is hands-on, but not overwhelming. She teaches you how to make the dish and supplies you with a manual to take home! As she is a nutritionist, she informed me of the health benefits of the dishes we made. Pam is very personable. Although you are in a complete stranger's home, you don't feel awkward or uncomfortable. I had a fun, informative time!Dec 3, 2015Verified

I work with people to find a healthy lifestyle they LOVE. Together we'll find a nutrition program that is easy to follow and feels right, an exercise program you love doing, and food you love to eat. I believe if you don't LOVE doing it, you won't!
