Chef Terry is a great chef and instructor. We booked her cooking class for our team building event in Berkeley and really enjoyed the entire experience from the preparation of the dishes all the way until we sat down and enjoyed the meals we had made. I can definitely recommend her.

Chef Terry knows so much about Bay Area food. I left her house with notes I had taken about new places to try and knowledge of the history behind some of Berkeley's most treasured markets. I loved her upside-down stone fruit cake, a perfectly sweetened and spectacular summer dessert!

I have worked in the food world for almost 30 years and am definitely from the school of Northern California cooking. I get excited by the the first crops of the season and have befriended many local vendors! My global travels are a big influence on my cooking and through my experience as a caterer and a personal chef, I have cooked many different meals and cuisines. I really enjoy teaching others how easy it can be to make dishes that highlight the ingredients and satisfy the palette.
