I was very, very pleased with our experience with Chef Valerie and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others. She shared some tips that I’m sure we will use over and over again. She is very knowledgeable and gracious. We would surely take another class of hers when time permits.

Chef Valerie was professional, patient and very kind. We put our session to use by making empanadas the following week for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! Thanks for putting this cautious very new cook at ease.
