Setting Up a Class: Get a group of 5-10 together. Decide on a date and time with me. Decide on a theme. Come. Cook. Eat. Learn. Have fun.

Setting Up a Private Lesson: I can come to your home and work with you in your own kitchen. {Cost: $40 per hour}

The Teacher: I am not a trained chef. I don’t have any sort of formal training. I learned to cook from my dad and lots of practice. I have a passion for food, cooking, and providing my family with great, healthy food. I also have found ways to cook and organize cooking that work in a busy home.

Class Expectations: You will receive a copy of all the recipes and tips covered during the class. You will observe and assist in the preparation of the recipes focused on in the class. You will sample recipes. You will have a fun time hanging out with friends.

Cost: $10 per person {You must have at least 5 people in the class or the rate will be adjusted.} You may pay for the class in the Whole Diligence Store.
