Teaming up

This team worked together to produce a delicious, multi-course Hawaiian luau and then sat down to enjoy it

What a fabulous time my group had working with Ellie. She was more than willing to accommodate our small group and traveled to a personal residence to host our event. She was engaging and enthusiastic and my team really rallied around the activity. With all the food prepared for us to start, all that was left was the fun of working in our teams to actually do the cooking! Needless to say the recipes were simply delicious. I would certainly use Let's Get Cooking again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a strong team-building experience.

Friendly cooking buddies

Pat invited her good friend Laura to join her for her cooking lesson. Pat had received a gift certificate for a cooking lesson as a Christmas gift from her daughter, because she knows how much her mom loves to cook.

We had a great time on Monday. The beef wellington was great, everyone loved it. Thanks again it was fun.

Will this rain ever stop?

With all this rain at least we don't have to water our tomatoes! However, we have a mushroom farm growing in our yard. Unfortunately, the mushrooms are probably poisonous, so we can't even cook or eat them. What a waste!

Camp cooking lesson

Here's a group of 11 teenagers enjoying the meal that they prepared as an activity at their day camp.They were very enthusiastic and especially loved pounding the chicken!

Ripening Summer fruits and veggies

Many summer fruits, such as peaches, nectarines, and melons, are not ripe when we purchase them. To hasten the ripening process, place them in a paper bag, close the bag and store at room temperature. Once your fruits have adequately ripened, you can halt the process by putting them in the refrigerator.

Bachelorette cooking party

I had a great time working on a bachelorette party in Cambridge for a bride-to-be and her friends who know how much she loves to cook. She had no idea what was planned and was thrilled to be abe to cook with her best friends. They all donned their chef's hats and aprons and had a ball preparing and eating the wonderful dinner that they cooked together. Wasn't Candice a beautiful bride one week later!!
Thank you again for a wonderful time and great cooking tips (all the girls have been raving about it, especially the microwavable salmon dish!) Lydia L., Indianapolis, IN

Private cooking lesson

Judy and John's chidren gave them a gift certificate for a cooking lesson so that John would, after more than 40 years of marriage, learn how to help Judy with the cooking. Below is what they had to say about their experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed your cooking skills! I was blown away with how much you accomplished in just over two hours! We all enjoyed gourmet dining for dinner, including my son in law who arrived late!..Soo glad to have new recipes! I’ll be sure to let you know if John cooks again! At least he tried for the first time! Keep on trying to educate our men. Once again we really enjoyed your visit! Keep on cooking! Judy T., Chelmsford, Massachusetts
