What Neighbors are Saying:

I loved how professional you were. Everything that you had – the two kinds of water, the coffee and tea, the flowers, the beautifully set table, the aprons and recipe cards – all of that was extremely well done and thoughtful. You’ve taken care of every detail and I really appreciate that. The cooking all went flawlessly, thanks to your careful preparation and time management. And I learned a few tips. – Glen

The process was very organized. We all participated in every phase of the project (trying out our training wheels). I loved meeting people who I may never have run into anywhere else! – Catherine

This was so much fun. I really learned a lot and met some great folks. It was really cool getting to learn in a home environment rather than a big kitchen or a classroom. Everyone seemed to have a great time, and it was awesome to finish the class with a meal around the table. I would definitely take another class. – Dylan

My husband and son were really impressed with and grateful for your clear, encouraging and organized instruction and it was a special pleasure to enjoy the (amazingly delicious) fruit of your collective labors together. – Naama

It was fun, hands-on, and made some fancy food which felt really easy to make. – Laura

Loved everything about it: the adorably portioned single recipes, the camaraderie, the free-flowing questions and answers, the delicious finished products, the two-sided recipe cards, and getting to meet neighbors. Emily

Friendly group, simple steps explained well, lots of opportunities to ask questions. – Joy
Jen creates a genuinely warm atmosphere in which neighbors can connect with each other. She has prepared the recipe ingredients and planned the order of operations such that the timing is managed perfectly for the 2 hours we are together. Her sessions are a perfect combination of fun, inspiration, culinary learning, connecting with others and an opportunity for me to have fun with my 13 year old daughter outside of the house and away from technology! – Laura
