Private cooking lesson

On a wintry January day these cousins enjoyed cooking together.
"My family really enjoyed having you over, Ellie! Everything we made was delicious and I truly learned things about cooking that I didn't already know, which made the whole experience that much better. I've already put your tips to use, by making another batch of pad thai with my mom and also by making scrambled eggs. I'm looking forward to learning more through your cookbook and newsletters. Thanks again!"

Kid's cooking birthday party

This very enthusiastic group cooked an Italian themed meal to celebrate Cameron’s 12th birthday.
"Many thanks to you, Ellie for making my son's birthday party so memorable. The kids all had a wonderful time and were excited to go home and cook for their own families! I enjoyed meeting you and will be sure to let my friends know about your, "Let's Get Cooking", parties. Again, thanks so much for such a fun party."
