Customer Testimonies:

"Hi Nancy and Jet,
I wanted to let you both know that our group had a wonderful time last Saturday. It was such a great experience that several couples mentioned they would like to do this again. Maybe a Summer cooking lesson. The layout was perfect and allowed everyone to see and hear. And the food was excellent. I'm not sure if I'm talented enough to make everything, but it will be fun to try. 
Tom"


"It was such a nice experience being in your shop.  I enjoyed the cooking class with Jasper.  Everyone was so friendly.  Thank you again.  Donna"

"Last nights dinner class was a perfect 10.  From start to finish, each dish was something doable at home and delicious.
I would love the potato recipe.  Thanks for sharing and you do a wonderful job in your demonstrations.
Marti Wilkinson
PS. Barry thought it was your best so far and can't wait for me to make the dishes!"
