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.
When my son (9 yr old boy) expressed to me he wanted to be a contestant on Chopped Jr. I made it my goal to get him prepared. I contacted Traveling Chef and immediately my son's goals became a his goals as well. Travis arrived on time, and was very detailed when explaining how to pick produce and meats. Like many 9 yr old boys it's usually hard to keep him focused, however he was engaged from start to finish. Travis was very patient and allowed my son to be very hands on which made for an excellent lesson. The food was amazing, my son was very proud of his accomplishments, and he left the kitchen spotless. I can't wait until my son's next lesson. Every mom should take a day off and allow dinner to be prepared by their children and Chef Travis.
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!
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.
I joke with Chef Jay often that he's (and his fried chicken) the reason I snagged my husband! Our cooking lessons are so full of life and information! I've even started to get my friends in on the action. What he does with flavor profiles (a term he taught me) is beautiful. Always on time and always comes through.
Chef Billie Sutton provided an awesome cooking demonstration for the Boeing Seal Beach Fitness Center. Her presentation on the dishes she prepared were informative, on point, and most of all, tasty!
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.
