I really enjoyed Chef Melissa's class especially because she taught me how to modify meals based on the dietary restrictions without compromising flavor and/or no need to make completely different meal because of it. I am slowly shifting focus to a vegetarian diet because I have been hearing many health benefits. Chef Melissa made it so easy to jump into these dishes so that I can start cooking at home. I highly recommend taking Chef Melissa's classes!

Chef Melissa’s culinary expertise and nutritional background have blown me away! Her heart goes into every single, scrumptious meal she prepares while understanding my personal food preferences and dietary needs. Her dishes burst with flavor, zesty creativity and freshness! She packs an abundance of fresh, high quality ingredients into every scrumptious morsel while artfully creating delectable flavor profiles that nourish the body and soul. The variety and flexibility that she offers when it comes to meal planning is something I truly appreciate. As an efficient communicator and highly organized professional, Chef Melissa makes meal-planning, grocery shopping and cooking look effortless. Her contagious energy and love for healthy meals makes her a pleasure to work with. Healthy never tasted this good! Thank you Chef!

I recently enjoyed a lunch cooked by Chef Melissa and it was yummy, flavorful and healthy. After my well prepared meal of vegetable stew highlighting seasonal zucchini, farro arugula salad and fresh fruit chia pudding, I was happy and satisfied without feeling heavy. As a person she is engaging in a calm and friendly way and creative with food in ways that you will appreciate. My stomach and I look forward to another meal!
