Private cooking lesson

"Hi Ellie,
We had a great time and really enjoyed your company and the experience! The tips were appreciated too! I’m definitely a beginner in the kitchen, but, after your lesson I’m appreciative of the time in the kitchen. We’re also planning to reach out to you for a follow up lesson next year!"

Private cooking lesson

"Steve & I want to thank you so much for our cooking lesson this afternoon!!! We had such fun, and you made it so simple & easy to accomplish. Everything was delicious...yes; even my somewhat challenged taste buds enjoyed both meat recipes! And the chocolate lava cake with homemade whipped cream was a perfect ending to a perfect meal!!

Thanks again for all your help, suggestions and the wonderful cooking lesson!"
