“You are so friendly, you’re taking the guess work out of cooking naturally, easily, encouraging us to become great chefs, too. You’re changing the game here, my dear. You’re not out to be seductive or mom-like, sharing a decadent recipe, you’re teaching us how to cook by choosing gorgeous, fresh ingredients.”

Lia Holmes

“I really like how you explain the reasoning behind everything, that certainly makes it easier to learn. And the idea of taking an intuitive approach vs a textbook approach is a very good one. You seem to be a natural teacher. You’re able to take feedback and build something creatively out of it. That in itself is a gift and it’s wonderful that you’re sharing it.”

Timmy Ray

“This is amazing! Before watching this I thought I knew about herbs, but turns out I had a lot more to learn and you are an incredible teacher! Can’t wait to use these techniques with my garden herbs.”

“This project was a labor of love from me to you. I have had so many readers—not to mention friends and family—ask me to teach them how to cook. Cooking really comes down to knowing how to build flavor. After receiving an influx of emails this year asking me how to use spices & herbs, my friends Kristen at Food Renegade and Cara from Health Home & Happiness both told me to get my butt in gear and just do it!

I’m SO thankful for all the support and encouragement I received to do this class. I hope you’re as pleased with the result as I am.

I can’t wait to hear about what you all end up creating in your kitchens!”
