Julie Peters prepared food and taught a two-hour class using Young Living Essential Oils. We discussed the menu ahead of time. Julie gprovided great customer service, listening to my input on what might work for our group. When I attended with several team members, I was impressed. The food was nutritious as well as delicious! She even went the extra mile and made everything look elegant. One thing I really appreciated is how she made it simple and explained everything clearly. We received recipes and I was able to go home and make the dish on my own. Not only was her class organized, but also creative and fun! It was a joy to work with Julie. Ms. Peters is a professional. I look forward to enjoying more of her food in the future!
Local Yocals has easily become a family favorite. They are able to blend the perfect combination of incredibly fresh local flavors, and incredible chef talent. The menu as always has staples, but also has new flavors to try. If I have to choose a vendor at any event and Local Yocals is an option, we will choose them every single time. One thing I also appreciate is that they write where the food sources are from, it seems like everyone claims to be local, and this is the real deal. Well done.
Sue is very knowledgable about food, ingredients, and local offerings. Her passion for food and great rapport with children make her classes a winning combination! More importantly, the kids think it is delicious and fun!
Our experience was fantastic. She handled our party of 12 very well and the food was great.
Johnny gave detailed instruction and demonstrated all aspects of the cooking experience. He also provided information about food purchasing, storing and preserving, as well as tips for preventing cross-contamination. I will be scheduling additional classes. My experience was delightful.
