We had a fantastic experience with Chef Lilly! She made us feel welcome and we quickly felt like old friends spending a fun time in the kitchen. Chef Lilly taught us 7 traditional recipes from her Algerian mother's cuisine repertoire and the the dinner we made together was so delicious and flavorful. She also gave us healthier cooking alternatives and very useful tips. The best part is that Chef Lilly packed the rest of the dinner so we could have another feast at home! We highly recommend her!

If you've ever wondered how to get into healthier cooking, Chef Lilly has the answer for you! Her food is vibrant — full of colors and flavors that bring out the true essence of the ingredients. She prepares food with their health impact in mind, but at the same time, manages to make the final dishes taste wonderful. Who knew that a spinach dip full of flavor, was also full of rich goodness? The lemon turmeric energy balls were such a treat that incorporated a vibrant blend of ingredients that Chef Lilly easily shows how to combine in order to create your new homemade power bars. Chef Lilly's sense of humor, food and health knowledge, and easy to follow recipes, make for a wonderful class that you shouldn't miss if you want to care about what you eat and how to improve your own health!

We had the most fabulous experience with Chef Lilly! She was the perfect host, teacher and guide in our desire to learn more about plant-based cooking. Not only does she have a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge, but she is supportive in letting us try new skills and very fun! We spent - as a couple - hours with her enjoying her insights and skills and were so surprised to see how quickly the time had passed! We cannot possibly recommend her to you with more enthusiasm - you would be most fortunate to be able to take a class with her! Thank you, Chef Lilly!! Jim and Sharon
