“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is today.”
Chinese proverb

My menus include:
  • Italian – Pasta, Tiramisu
  • Spanish – Paella, Orange Cake
  • Thai – Tom Kah, Pad Thai
  • Moroccan – Tagine, Pistachio Cookies
  • French – Beef Bourguignon, Creme Brulee
  • French – Coq au Vin, French Macarons

Socialize and cook together – a great combination

I help facilitate interaction and decision making in a social setting. We’ll share stories, recipes, techniques. Plus, having time in the kitchen with a personal trainer is rewarding for all, because feeling comfortable in the kitchen is the first step toward enjoying the art and science of cooking.

Join me in the kitchen to gain a closer relationship with friends and coworkers, and to gain cooking skills.

I can help you find your inner cook, and help you define the flavors you enjoy so that you cook for your own tastes, your own personal cuisine.

Or, you don’t cooked: you have a meeting, do a presentation, and then eat my food…


  • Corporate groups
  • Bachelor, Bachelorette parties
  • Volunteer groups, clubs
  • Moms, or Dads night out
  • Couples night out
  • Teens, Kids (6+)

You’ll acquire new skills and easy, tasty recipes that you can use for your entire life! To put a new twist on an old proverb:

“Cook a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to cook fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
