Mercedes is a great teacher, very kind, patient, and professional. I was a true beginner and was even afraid to turn on my stove and oven. She takes me shopping for supplies and ingredients and then comes back to my apartment to teach me how to cook. I foresee working with her for a long time to learn different techniques and recipes. She’s also just a great human being: smart, funny, and wonderful to be with.

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!
