Great job. Great experience. Flexible with our schedule. Called me on the phone when I asked. Easy to deal with. We did one class on Go to Meeting and one over the phone. It doesn't matter what level you're at, Monica is your go-to trainer!

What a blessing to find a person that made cooking fun and educational. A person that illustrated the skill of cooking with such poise. That persons name is Kelsie. Before My first cooking class at Kelsie's kitchen my youngest daughter asked if she could come along with my granddaughter. When we three told my mother about how much fun we had cooking she insisted on coming to Kelsie's the next time. Four generations making meals together is a day to remember. Great class Kelsie!

I haven't seen my son this excited in a long time. He said that he learned a lot already and that Kelsie was very patient with him. He loved the cooking lesson and is looking forward to many more.

I purchased a lesson as a gift for my (gluten-free, vegan) girlfriend. Anna was incredibly accommodating and came up with a lesson specifically designed to suit her needs. Most importantly, she made the lesson enjoyable and the food delicious. My girlfriend loved it! Anna is great at what she does and I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Anna is a great Maestra and a lot of fun to learn from! I am learning very quickly and she helps to keep me motivated to continue working on my Espanol on my own.
