I hired Mitch to do a cooking class for 5 girls from 7-10 years old (surprise) . He was very enthusiastic, asked what the girls like the most to cook and offered a few choices of menu that I could pick from. He gave me a list all things that i need to buy for the menu ahead of time. on the day of the class, he arrived on time, played a game right at the door with girls to guess what was he doing in our home.Originally he set the time to be 2-3 hours but he stayed for 4 hours and did not rush anything in order to finish early and his price stayed the same! Mitch started teaching basics of how to hold a knife, how to cut and let all the girls using his knife and cutting tomatoes and onions for salsa, cutting bacon for Pasta Alfredo, etc. He mixed up cooking with fun jokes with girls and gave a history of the food or ingredients where it was appropriate. He was super patient with all the silly or serious questions from the girls. our menu was pasta Alfredo, soft and hard tacos with ground meat and eggless chocolate mouse for dessert. we had a great meal and leftover for the next day. Mitch cleaned up kitchen and utensil well during and after cooking so i did not have to clean at all. I have recommended him to my friends and would hire Mitch again.
I have attended a few of Stefan's cooking classes and I'm very impressed with his level of commitment to helping those of us who require additional assistance in the culinary field. His classes are geared to all levels of expertise and come with all the necessary tool to have a successful experience.
Debbie is WONDERFUL and I would highly recommend her to everyone I know. I signed up for a series of 6 cooking classes with her with the goal of forcing myself to try new foods and learning new recipes - I definitely accomplished both! Everything she taught us was health conscious and tasted delicious! I am looking forward to the next set of 6 classes with Debbie!
I have had the great pleasure of enjoying the delights of Mrs. Love's cakes and amazing cooking. She catered our company Thanksgiving Dinners for several years. Her cooking never fails to blow everyone away & I cannot say enough about her level of professionalism. Her cooking made those Thanksgiving dinners an event we all would look forward to all year long.
My family was lucky to work with Denise this winter/spring. She came to our house several times for private instruction and was so warm and encouraging and knowledgable as she explained everything she was doing for us. It was amazing to see her involve my preteen/teen boys whenever they had time and in whatever they decided to take interest. She encouraged them to taste new foods, to discuss what they liked, to think about what was healthy and to enjoy working in the kitchen (or at the grill!) She gave me great tips and examples for meal planning, shopping, prepping, cooking, cleaning and organizing my kitchen, all with a great focus on healthy habits. She has put us on a path to better eating and more enjoyable family meal time together - what a gift. Thank you Denise!
Deborah was flexible about helping me to cook better, with more variety, and to learn to cook some meals that my husband loves. At first, Deborah helped me sort out my kitchen equipment and supplies at my home. The cooking techniques she taught me are ones that you just don't get by following a recipe. We will continue with weekly cooking visits to my home. She is clearly an experienced chef instructor, with a pleasant and fun personality. MAH, Fairfield County
I have taken two cooking classes with Chef Celeste Borelli at her boutique studio kitchen in Avon and could not have been more pleased with both of them! Chef Borelli has a warm and inviting personality and is truly gifted at turning fresh, local ingredients into elegant, yet simple to prepare, dishes that I have made myself several times since the classes. In addition, I was fortunate enough to enjoy a lovely and delicious brunch prepared by Chef Borelli at her home. I encourage you to contact Chef Borelli whether you are looking to learn some fresh new dishes to share with family and friends this holiday season or could use a little help with your cooking.
I have seen Chef Neena and her assistant Maria in action for a kid's birthday party and they are truly a lot of fun! The kids (pre-teens) had so much fun making pasta and sauce all from scratch! The look on their faces when they got to eat what they made was one of surprise and accomplishment. She even cleaned up all the mess! No stress and a lot of fun for a birthday party!
Chef Jenn demonstrated a level of versatility and professionalism that can't be matched when she held a Thai cooking class for my bachelorette. With last minute notice and requests we were sure we would have had to compromise on she came through with exactly what we wanted. To top it off she did so quickly, and more flexibly than we could have ever asked for! She was knowledgeable, fun, and she fit right in with my crazy group of girlfriends making for an amazing night! I have used her tips and tricks frequently in my own kitchen and have used her recipes multiple times in my home and they are always a hit! Highly recommended!
We hired Holly to host a bachelorette cooking party - and what a blast we all had! Holly was excellent at communicating details of the event and arrived with everything we needed to pull together a fabulous dinner. It was the perfect way to spend an evening together and celebrate our soon-to-be bride. I'd highly recommend Holly for your next event!
It's very rare to find a cooking teacher as patient, as smart, and as fun as Rosa Ross. We held a Peking Duck class at our home and enjoyed the experience immensely. Rosa took the time to explain both what to do and the underlying principles of why we were doing it -- something rare among teachers today. Our class had people of varied levels and we all were able to learn and participate. From basic knife skills to crafting the perfect dumpling to cleaning and curing the duck to some amazing cooking techniques and shortcuts, Rosa was there to help us along the way. And much laughter and delicious food ensued.
Outstanding food. Vitalizing service.

I am certified by the Kushi Institute in Macrobiotic Cooking. I have been practicing a macrobiotic lifestyle for 30 years and lived and worked at the Kushi Institute for three years in the registration department. I raised two grown children with the macrobiotic diet and lifestyle, and they are happy and off living their lives now. I am dedicated, compassionate, patient and kind. I have also been a yoga instructor since 1997. I have taught macrobiotic and ayurvedic cooking classes at the Integral Yoga Institute in New York City, in the tristate area as well as San Francisco. I have helped many people change their lives and health for the better by just showing them the way. What we put into our bodies creates the sea of life or our bloodstream. If this pulsating stream is acidic, clogged and unclean, then viruses and germs can harbor and grow and create life-threatening illnesses. With a macrobiotic diet, you will clean your body in a safe and gentle way without medications if you so chose or with moderated medicine from your doctor. The food can become delicious to you as you start to appreciate it and most importantly, feel better! This is a splendid opportunity to learn from a teacher who lives it every day. I am very supportive and have a wealth of resources of the best macrobiotic teachers in the world. I would be happy to talk to you about any health concerns and give you my idea of a plan for you of healthy eating and healing. Please call or text anytime. Thank you!
