I teach cooking to all levels, starting with some basics through more complex methods. Simple or complicated dishes are fun when you have the understanding of the process and ingredients. The best part of it is that you will take home a delicious, healthy meal cooked from scratch. You will cook in my well equipped kitchen under my guidance and eat a delicious dish with my family. We are fun, easy going and love to laugh; join me for any cuisine and let's take your cooking skills to a next level. You will go home with recipes of the dishes we cooked and extra food for a few meals!

I was lucky enough to have a mom that taught me to cook growing up and I love teaching the art of cooking. Have you always wondered exactly what a bechamel sauce is? And what goes into a Quiche? What's the difference between broiling, roasting and braising? Or do you just want to be able to make scrambled eggs and cook bacon without burning it? Basics or advanced, I will teach you the ins and outs of the kitchen and answer any questions you have. Don't be intimidated by food. It doesn't take expensive and exotic ingredients to make a delicious meal you can be proud to serve to company and family.

I cook almost every day. As a German, I am used to homemade food and I am sure there is a lot I can teach my students.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

Marcel is very friendly and personable. He made my 6 year old daughter very comfortable. He is patient, and works well with children. He even helped my husband and I practice some German too! I would highly recommend Marcel as a German tutor!

Marcel is an excellent German teacher for my son. A fluent speaker, he is very patient as my son works to learn German as a second language. Marcel also goes above and beyond by setting up a vocabulary web page for my son to add words as he learns them. I would highly recommend Marcel for anyone wanting to learn German, whether they are beginners or advanced speakers.

I owned my own catering company and loved managing my team at all our events. I have taught beginners and advanced. My style is simple and easy to understand so you can learn to incorporate different techniques to different dishes. I like to start with the basics and show you how to apply what you learn so you feel comfortable making your own creations in no time at all!

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.

Cooking techniques (frying, boiling, broiling, baking, braising, smoking, grilling, etc.), tools needed to cook well, pans/pan types, spices/herb review, fats/cooking with different fats, heat sources (oven, grill, stove top, microwave, etc.), "make a meal" where the student chooses it and we make it together...

I am really enjoying working with Robin. He is extremely knowledgable and experienced, and has already taught me a lot. He is assessing what I already know and what direction I want to go in, and he is making this totally individualized to the coaching i am looking for. I appreciate his efforts, expertise and thoughtfulness.

Robin is a natural teacher. I have had several golf lessons with him and was impressed by his knowledge of the sport and passion for the game. He often went about and beyond what I expected. I am looking forward to more lessons soon.

I have a strong background in traditional french techniques, and enjoy sharing those techniques with beginning students. I also take time to study flavor pairings, and love to help intermediate students "up their game" with adventurous combinations and uncommon ingredients.
As a professional baker, the best thing I can offer Advanced students is help with plating techniques, "wow" factor, and efficiency for special-event cooking.
