Chef Kristin is so lovely to be around and extremely welcoming. I loved listening to her stories and her unique upbringing with food. Her recipes are hearty, healthy, yet delicious. She also grows a lot of her own herbs and vegetables that she uses in her cooking, which gives them that added fresh flair and flavor. This goes back to how she grew up eating lots of homegrown fruits and veggies. Most of the recipes she prepared were vegan/vegetarian, so if you are looking to learn how to cook in this style for yourself or even entertain a large group, Chef Kristin is your girl!

Our experience with Kristen was superb! She is very knowledgeable and is an excellent teacher. I had many questions which she answered and I learned so much. The food was delicious too. I definitely recommend her class.

While Chef Kristen was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, I did not get a hands-on experience learning how to make sourdough bread. She was also disorganized and her explanations went on personal tangents that did not add to my knowledge of sourdough making. The food she made was delicious, but for $75/person, I could have had a nice meal in a multitude of places and simply looked up how to make sourdough bread for free online. If you want a nice dinner with good company and an interesting hostess, then a class with Chef Kristen is for you. If you want hands-on experience and the opportunity to actually make sourdough, then I recommend skipping this class.
