My Mother and enjoyed Chef Laura’s cooking class, last night. It was just my mother and I participating in Chef Laura’s gourmet kitchen. Her skills, kindness, and professionalism far exceeded my expectations. The food (which my Mum and I prepared, with her direction) was out of this world AMAZING! We learned so much and had so much fun. Chef Laura truly made this experience extremely enjoyable. Not only do I highly recommend her, but this won’t be the last time that I take a class with her. Anyone who is graced with her presence and has the opportunity to learn from her is lucky! Thank you, Chef Laura!

This is a 5 star experience. Laura is a fantastic chef, teacher and hostess. My wife and I had so much fun with her. Laura can teach you something about food if you're a beginner or an expert. She has an outstanding personality and hosts in her beautiful home and fabulously equipped kitchen. The food you will make is better than any 5 star restaurant in San Diego. If you want to have a blast..do this!!

Fantastic Chef and host. Delicious food. Great menu. Easy to follow instructions, useful kitchen tips, and a wonderful meal. Made new friends in class... and did I mention how good the food was? The chimmichurri was amazing flavor to accentuate everything else on our plates. Steaks were perfect. Empanadas were tasty. Highly recommend Chef Laura, and look forward to attending more of her classes.

My boyfriend got my mom and I this class for Mother’s Day. We had the BEST time! My mom is an amazing chef and I am... well.. not. My mom picked up so many new tips and tricks snd was so excited! She told my boyfriend to give this present to us every Mother’s Day. Laura was absolutely a star and we could not say enough about her. She is a talented chef that is sharing her passion with others and it shows. Her prep work and thought she put into our cooking class was outstanding. It all ended too quickly and we wanted to stay longer. Best gift ever and we had such a great night. Thank you chef Laura for letting us cook snd learn under your expert eyes!!!!

Beyond being knowledgeable and an incredible cook, Chef Laura is warm and encouraging. My daughters absolutely love her classes! They have learned how to make complex dishes, like macarons, and it has built their confidence in the kitchen. So excited that she will be offering more classes!

Chef Laura’s classes are so much fun! She is organized, talented, and patient. We love the thought and planning she puts into her classes and how she consistently makes food that turns out beautifully. We have learned and take away a lot from Chef Laura and will keep signing up for more classes in the future.

Both of my girls are cooking and baking with confidence after spending time with Chef Laura! Thanksgiving was so fun this past year with them as my helpers! Many of Chef Laura’s recipes made our holiday menu.

As I had the opportunity to take two of her awesome classes, I would highly recommend the talented and lovely Chef Laura! Her straight forward clear instructions, as well as organizational skills and delightful personality made for a fun, smooth and educational experience in a group setting. The first class was "Healthy Desserts." Chef Laura provided incredible knowledge on baking, pastry techniques and ingredient substitutions according to nutrition, particular food allergies or even tastes. Everything was so yummy! The second class was "Fast, Healthy, Delicious Meals." We learned proper knife skills (I still think of what I learned each time I chop!) , tips on meal prep and how to make several DELICIOUS quick dinners. It was a blast to learn from Chef Laura and at the end of the evening take home all of our creations. I give Chef Laura 5 stars and highly recommend, as I truly enjoyed learning from her and had so much fun in the process!

Chef Laura is knowledgable, professional and fun!! Whether you are a beginner or have been cooking for a long time, Chef Laura is for you. I have enjoyed three cooking classes taught by her and have walked away every time with loads of new information, tips and tasty, healthy food to eat. The recipes were wonderful and my family has enjoyed everything that I have made from the classes. For one of the classes, Chef Laura planned and prepared a special cooking class for my friends and I to enjoy a girl's night out and to learn new recipes using an instant pot. It was such a fun night that my friends and I still talk about and want to plan for another class with her. 5 stars don't express enough how highly I recommend Chef Laura.

I took a pasta making class with Chef Laura. I'd never made pasta from scratch so I thought it was going to be hard and a lot of work. Chef Laura showed me how easy and fun it is. Mixing up the dough was really easy and I enjoyed feeding the pasta back and forth through the rollers. Right away I knew I wanted to get the roller attachment for my mixer. She sent us home with the recipe for the pasta and the amazing sauce. I can't wait for my next class!

Both my daughter (12 yrs old) and I have taken cooking classes with Laura both together and separately. Laura has flavorful and seasonally fresh menu ideas that can take you all the way thru your week of meal planning. I appreciate that Laura has thought thru how meal prep for one night short cuts the next nights menu preparations so that a bit of hard work on one night makes the rest of the week so easy. I never felt like I needed anything more than a good knife in order to execute her recipes at home. Laura gives you great explanations and simple shortcuts from how to wield a knife properly to how to chose your produce and proteins and best places to shop. Every class I always came away with wonderful "ah-ha" moments and "who knew?" discoveries. Laura's instructions are simple and efficient and oh my goodness...the flavors she combines in her menu recipes are refreshing and different for all taste pallets maximizing seasonal options that give you the best nutrition as well. Laura has the ability and knowledge to teach kids and adults of all ages and expertise. You always walk away with a great packet of recipes and wonderful nuggets of tasty knowledge. I highly recommend Laura's classes.
Chef Laura has an incredible culinary résumé that includes graduating with honors from the International Culinary Center. Previously, a caterer and chef instructor, Chef Laura currently hosts fun and exciting cooking classes where she shares her sharp culinary knowledge and techniques. She knows exactly how to prepare a menu using optimal seasonal ingredients that bring out the best aromas and flavors for a truly beautiful dish, so prepare to up your cooking game!
