Pam came over and provided us private instruction in our home on basic cooking skills. Pam did a great job. We will be hiring again this next weekend to help us with preparing for Thanksgiving since it will be our first time cooking everything ourselves. I would recommend Pam to anyone looking for cooking instruction.

I am very impressed with Annabel's work! She not only baked the most artistic cake, but also delicious! I ordered 3 cakes from her last October 7 and each one was unique, creative, and delicious. Annabel listened to my needs and also added her own personal touch to the cakes. She was very responsive, professional, and just went above and beyond. The cakes were a little pricey compared to your regular bakery or store bought cake but it's worth every penny. The 3 cakes that I ordered were customized and one cake was a bit complicated due to allergies but I was willing to pay for the extra price. I am a happy customer and I will surely order again from Annabel Sweet Novelette Cake. And you should too!

I hired Chef Kerry to prepare all meals for a moderate size group over a weekend. He provided an amazing array of options for every meal that left all of my guests satisfied and full. All of our dietary restrictions were met with exceptionally delicious vegan dishes, desserts, and snacks. I will definitely reach out to Chef Kerry Prince for upcoming events both vegan and traditional in the future.

I had the pleasure of learning from Laura last weekend. I consider myself an experienced cook and I'm grateful to report I learned new techniques, recipes, and cooking tips from Laura! Not only did she thoughtfully provide cooking advice prior to our first lesson, but she additionally considered all my health requests when I expressed a desire to continue learning "clean" cooking. I am an avid weight lifter and fitness instructor and I explained to Laura that I am very conscious about how I cook (i.e. cooking without salt, eating very lean protein meat/fish, etc.). I cook every single meal for myself and meal prep on weekends in order to weigh out all my portions before the beginning of my week. Laura modified several recipes to adhere to the guidelines I outlined for her and even gave me suggestions for sauces, curries and cooking techniques I could use in future meal planning. Laura was also aware I am in the process of moving to another country and she used her knowledge of the specific country's culture to recommend several cooking items I could purchase to maximize my ability to cook with variety yet within budget. Laura went above and beyond my expectations by applying her knowledge and expertise to best advise me on cooking techniques I can use both in the U.S. and when I move abroad, shared her passion for cooking and piqued my interest in expanding my cooking repertoire. I highly recommend Laura for cooking lessons, meal preparation and special events.

Eat Well with Will

I have had Will's cooking on a numerous of different occasions. And I must say Will has a real talent in the kitchen! He can make almost anything from scratch or make things that you don't think will taste good turn out to taste wonderful! My favorite dish he made was a chicken dish with a load of different seasonings. Every bite I had was so moist and tasty (in a good way)! I would highly recommend to try Will's cooking, at least once, you would not be sorry and definitely be pleasantly surprised with how flavorful his dishes taste. :)

The lesson's provided by Chef Travis far exceeded my hopes and expectations! He answered every one of my questions and created videos to demonstrate his techniques. We had lessons using Skype, so we were able to chat and demonstrate skills throughout the lesson. The time spent in his lessons were extremely valuable and lots of fun! Anyone wanting to learn kitchen techniques would be happy to have lessons with Chef Travis!!

Elaine helped my daughter and I with cooking lessons and menu ideas that would work with both of our dietary issues. We spent an afternoon together - through the magic of web cams. We prepared a vegetable lasagna, a spinach and strawberry salad, the most amazing miso soup ever and a squash and edamame treat that was out of this world. The dishes we prepared were made from fresh, organic ingredients that were gluten free, light on salt and most importantly quick and easy to prepare in our busy schedules. Elaine took every culinary and dietary issue of ours and came back with brilliant solutions. Elaine is knowledgeable and approachable with the ability to communicate what she knows without being preachy. I've ordered the Herblends seasonings, and she also has a cookbook. I'm very impressed her knowledge and abilities make great food and show us how she does it.

Chef Lyon is fantastic! I learned so much from my private lessons. He led me through the cooking basics step by step and each lesson was a lot of fun - and delicious. I have so many "go to" recipes in my repertoire now. A++

I cook for flavor first, so everyone tries my food just loves it, even when I prepare vegan dishes for meat eaters, they dig right in. That's because I've been cooking vegan food for 20 years for myself, and insist on eating the highest quality and best tasting food. That's what I share with others, and besides, I put ove in it. You can taste that too! I never use recipes, nor is it all in my head, I just utilize ingrained principles of good taste and how to combine foods and spices and it comes out great every time!

About

My name is Giulia, I was born in Italy and I've just moved to California. My hometown is Napoli, very well know for its traditional recipes and variations of other regional plates. My special dishes are most of all with pasta, especially pasta alla napoletana, carbonara, bolognese, seafood, pasta al forno (in the oven), and all sort of pasta with legumes and vegetables. Moreover, I can teach you how to prepare healthy but really tasty meat or fish dishes, vegetarian and Italian variations of Asian food as light Cantonese rise, noodles with vegetables and curry chicken. I can teach you how to make home made pasta, such as gnocchi and fettuccine, and share with you all the secrets I have learned through family's generations. Also, I can give you advice about the products to use for the real Italian taste! Italian language and culture. I will teach you Italian from the basis (depends on your level) starting from the alphabet and simple sentences. Grammar and conversation go together, because one is fundamental for the other. Other aims are the written and oral comprehension and learning about Italian culture like main historic facts, literature, music, cinema, recent events and cities.
