    My daughter and I had a cooking class, making pasta with three sauces. Very nice and patient. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would do it again. Highly recommended!!!

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        My small group classes are for 4-8 people, 3-5 hours long, $65 per person on average. Morning classes start at 10:30 am. We finish by lunch. Evening classes start at 3-4 pm and finish in time for dinner. Classes for two are 2-3 hours long, $75 per person on average, and can take place in my kitchen or yours. An additional travel fee of 15% will apply. I offer a set of weekly or monthly one-on-one classes which purpose is to deliver the most efficient results for those looking to improve their cooking skills noticeably. Based on your needs and budget, you can select a program with weekly menus, as well as personalized recipes adjusted to your taste, and the convenience of training in your own kitchen. The initial consultation is $45 per hour.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        1. I talk to my customers to discuss all the details. If needed, I invite them to my free demo. 2. We set the date and time. Two days before the event, I expect my customers to confirm the date, time, and a number of guests. Two days before the event is the last time when my clients can make changes, including cancellation of the event — free of charge. 3. After confirmation, I provide my kitchen address and final instructions. All changes related to the event made after confirmation are subject to a fee. Last minute cancellation should be paid 50% of the price.​
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
