I can teach you the basics or advanced techniques of cooking/baking, or learn a new way of doing things! I focus on creative cooking and also by learning how to deal with food sensitivities if you deal with them and work around it by finding substitutes and modification to make wonderful recipes and creations!

A wonderful chef, very informative, organized and professional. Great recipe and Maria adapted everything to suit my smallish kitchen and not too equipped cupboard. Very knowledgeable. Super delicious. Highly recommended!!

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 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 tutored my 6 year old daughter in German. He is very friendly and likable, and she enjoyed working with him right away! He even played "Filly's" with her (a German My Little Pony toy!" He is very patient and makes learning fun. He was punctual and also flexible. We had a great experience working with Marcel!

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.

Emily's teaching exceeded all my expectations for the four lessons she gave me on healthy cooking. She arrived punctually, well-prepared, and brimming with cheerful, well-informed advice that allowed me to gain far more confidence with my efforts in the kitchen! I highly recommend her! I couldn't have been happier.
