Stephanie Petersen has been our guest speaker/teacher a couple times at our Sweet-Stops events. You can't help but 'catch on' to what she is teaching because of her enthusiasm, knowledge, and love for whatever she is doing. Looking forward to more classes. (The truth is.....doesn't matter what she teaches....it's worth your time)Jun 17, 2014

What a dynamo this fabulous lady is! She taught about 35 ladies how to make decorative breads that were drop dead gorgeous! Everyone was thrilled and impressed with their creations... and Stephanie's bubbly personality made it so much FUN! She's charming, talented and will be your new BFF!Jun 13, 2014
Chef Stephanie Peterson, writer, television and media personality extraordinaire. Peterson is not only classically trained but breathtakingly masters the art of artisan bread. Having worked side by side chef Peterson on many professional venues, she exudes professionalism as well as charm and impeccable product knowledge. It is an honor to know this fine chef.Jun 12, 2014
Stephanie, aka Chef Tess has become a very popular repeat instructor for my clients. I have hosted 4 events with Stephanie as our instructor to teach clients cost saving kitchen skills and home production. She is on time, well organized, creative, and a problem solver! Have a strange space? She'll figure out how to use it. She is very willing and able to work with the needs of the group to ensure successful classes each time. The first class Stephanie taught, I had 5 sign ups, the most recent one had 23. (that was only the 3rd class. Word spreads that the Chef Tess classes are a great event!)Jun 12, 2014
I love attending Chef Tess classes! She is fun and bubbly and I always learn something new. She is a wealth of information. Don't forget to check out her website also and you can even order baked goods (yum) if you want really fresh and oh so good treats!Jun 11, 2014

Baking and cooking have long been a passion of mine, but seeing people learn to take-on a new skill has been powerful beyond words!
