Ann is an excellent teacher and communicator. The food was spectacular and she is clearly a true expert in her field, with so many unique yet accessible techniques. I really appreciated that a number of the foods were seasonal, from her amazing urban farm, and that nothing gets wasted in her cooking process! Definitely recommend!

We loved cooking with Chef Ann. Recipes were simple enough to want to try them ourselves and her cooking tips were invaluable. Don’t miss her garden! I would repeat this experience in a second.

Chef Ann was the best! It was like an intimate dinner party with friends, only we did the cooking! Chef Ann taught us several techniques, gave us tips, fed us from her farm, and introduced us to some great new flavors.
