Testimonials

"I have been a high school teacher for 22 years and I think I know quality teens when I see them. You two girls are remarkable in every way. You not only created a fun cooking camp, but one that raises awareness about different cultures and promotes lifelong skills for kids with celiac disease. The camp was extremely well thought out and organized and the recipes and teaching styles were what I would expect from professional adult chefs/educators. THANK YOU!"

Parent of a 2020 Fall Class Student

Friends, I’m not saying this to be nice or grading on a curve because Caroline and Paloma are still in high school. I’ve taken a lot of cooking classes, and these were among the best. It’s an understatement to say my son loved these classes. They took place over four days, and he was STOKED for each one. Even better, the food he made was legit delicious—we ate every bite.
 

I could tell how much the kids in class (many of whom had celiac) appreciated being able to make and eat delicious food that wouldn’t make them sick. I’m something of a misanthrope, even under the best circumstances, but I thoroughly enjoyed getting to meet such impressively creative, talented people.
