Very engaging. Spent time with all of us in the class.

Chef Tracy's knowledge of food, nutrition, and how each seasoning brought the best flavor to the food was amazing! Not only did I get to bring New Orleans to my kitchen, I learned how each food and seasoning affected my body. She taught us how different substitutions did not work well with regards to causing inflammation to the body or even reacting with medications. She was so patient with my 11 year old son who served as my sous chef. We had an incredible evening.

Chef Tracy was fantastic! I enjoyed learning about the science of food while cooking. She was knowledgeable, fun, and very patient. Would definitely work with her again.
