    She Cooks teaches cooking lessons in-home. We differ from traditional cooking lessons because we allow the client to purchase their own groceries. When the client purchases their own groceries it cuts down on the cost of service. She Cooks wants to empower people to cook everyday. If your parents never taught you to cook, or you never took a home economics class, we are a great fit. We hope to be affordable to the everyday consumer. We want you to be able to learn the skills necessary to come up with healthy, affordable, and delicious meals that you will cook over and over again!

    I am a chef specializing in the development of healthy, delicious cuisine. My mission is to provide healthy food for clients whether for health reasons or the simple desire to eat well and clean. I also have experience in many cuisines, notably Italian, Asian-Fusion, Healthy Southern Comfort, Caribbean, and Mediterranean. It is my privilege to provide Small Events Catering for clients, specializing in Small Plates, a tribute to the traditions of Spanish Tapas and Basque Pinchos, but expanding beyond those two traditions to include Bites influenced by Southern , American Comfort Food, Asian, and Latin traditions. I also provide cooking classes, specializing in every area from knife skills, to the creation of soups and sauces, to roasting and braising, how to cook clean and healthy, and how to spring board recipes into several different meals. It is especially helpful for today's busy people. Sessions are held in the client's home so that we can utilize the tools that are available and so that the client will be in comfortable, familiar surroundings.

  • Cook With Me

    I'm a chef, baker and registered dietitian. I can cook for 200 people but love a smaller, more personal, even hands-on dinner party experience. I love teaching and talking about food. I'm a rather rustic family-style chef and baker. I also love doing whole family cooking classes, so everyone learns, and then dinner is made for everyone! Other fun things I've done are baking classes for bridal showers and kids' baking classes.

More about Chef Heath Growing up in Lubbock, Texas, Heath spent his early years in the kitchen with his mother and grandmother learning culinary basics. He became fascinated with food and decided at the age of 15 to become a chef. Working his way up, Heath spent his teen years working in professional kitchens as a busboy and eventually moved on to cook on the line. Life then took him to Texas Tech University, where he worked towards a bachelor's degree in business. After fulfilling a successful career outside of the culinary world in the real estate business, Heath decided to get back on track toward following his passion and moved to Austin, Texas. He graduated top of his class from Le Cordon Bleu Austin in 2013, and his professional experience in the kitchen has continued ever since. Following graduation, Heath began working at Whole Foods Market. Here, Heath was responsible for preparing recipes from scratch, presenting items for assigned stations, prioritizing workloads while responding efficiently to the needs of each station. Heath does not take professional regulations lightly; therefore, he strictly followed all food safety and sanitation guidelines and maintaining all kitchen equipment. While continuing his education at Le Cordon Bleu, Heath moved on to work as an executive chef in the upscale retirement community of Brookdale Senior Living in North Austin. With this managerial position, Heath was responsible for overseeing day-to-day dining operations, training the chefs and kitchen utility workers, scheduling his staff for optimum coverage and conducting inventory checks and product orders. On the culinary side of it all, Heath planned the day's menu in accordance to corporate dietary standards, ensuring that his chefs followed each recipe to a T. He continues to whip up recipes from scratch while presenting each meal in a visually appealing manner. On top of it all, Heath is a personal chef and caterer, Brookdale Senior Living has made Heath no stranger to recipes, adhering to dietary restrictions, and therefore is trusted to prepare meals for clients who are gluten free, sugar free, or require low sodium or pureed options. While cooking is his passion, outside the kitchen, Heath can be found trying new local restaurants and food trucks, working in his garden and traveling when his schedule allows.

  • Moments of Our Lives

    My services include the following: * Personal Chef & Assistant I have been a chef for 40 years. My experience includes upscale restaurant, catering, and duties as a private chef and personal assistant. Having had many experiences in my field I am proud to have been a special events chef for Governor Ann Richards, whom I respected greatly. I am a personal chef and assistant, this would include cooking for individuals & families, while supporting the running of the household. In addition if you want a wonderful and memorable experience I will facilitate cooking class parties in your home or business. * Wedding Officiant This service is for couples who want a wedding ceremony that is richer and more vibrant than a rigid liturgical ceremony or a courthouse "civil" ceremony. Every couple deserves a ceremony that reflects their individual beliefs. Therefore, I perform every type of ceremony, including secular (civil), nondenominational, religious, and interfaith. I believe that the right to marry should be extended to all consenting adults. Therefore, eventhough same-sex marriage is not (yet!) legal in the state of Texas, I perform ceremonies regardless of the partners' gender.

    We had a wonderful time in our cooking class with Linda. Before we got together, she did an awesome job honing in our goals, which were to learn how to prepare some quick, tasty, and healthy meals as we are both very busy and trying to eat better. The meals she taught us to prepare couldn’t have been more perfect –delicious yet simple and practical for our schedules. In addition to showing us some new and tasty meals, she taught us other various cooking skills and was more than happy to answer all of our questions. It was an excellent experience not only because of what we learned, but because Linda is a lovely, fun person. We highly recommend her classes for your own cooking needs or as a gift for others!

  • Local Cooking Classes

    Path Nutrition

    (7 reviews)

    Jessica did a nice job of listening to my ideas for a casual cooking class/dinner party in my home. She suggested several menu items and did the shopping for our party. I liked the way she sent communicated clearly. For example, Jessica sent me a list of kitchen items to have ready for her use. That way she could go to work when she arrived and I could enjoy my guests. Jessica also did a nice job of teaching us cooking skills and answering questions, as she went along. We started with rolling spring rolls, which gave guests a chance to be 'hands on'. Jessica then talked us through the process of creating beef pho broth. Guests had the chance to build their own bowls of pho. I'd like to mention the quality of all the food Jessica brought was very good. For example, she brought Key West shrimp and talked to us about the importance of buying seafood that we know is clean. Jessica was in the kitchen for about 2.5 hours, which is what we had planned. I was impressed she kept the different courses flowing and on time. Jessica has a nice, upbeat personality and she loves cooking. This is another important quality to think about when you invite someone into your home to create a meal for your guests. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed Jessica and in fact, everyone stayed in the kitchen instead of heading into the den! Great event. We will hire Jessica again.
