Private Cooking Lessons

Mercedes was so punctual and professional. She was organized, responsive, and extremely presentable with each stage of the process. She made an extremely professional and beautiful menu, recipe book, and event for us. She checked in often and was communicative and flexible with each stage of planning. She was also very attentive to food allergies and being creative with our preferences. I couldn’t recommend her more!

Had Mercedes teach a sushi making class for a small birthday gathering. She was informative, fun, and an overall great experience

Our experience with Mercedes was OUTSTANDING. I direct an after school program, and Mercedes came to lead a cooking activity with our children. She helped the kids learn how to make three different foods out of an easy-to-make dough. It was by far our kids favorite activity this school year. Mercedes was easy to work with, and she did a fantastic job teaching and engaging with our kids (which is no easy task - they are quite talkative and energetic). I would highly recommend working with her. We can't wait to have her with us again!

We asked Mercedes to cater an engagement party for my husband's co-worker. An elegant, creative menu that everyone enjoyed. The food came out hot and on time. Highly recommend.
