Laurie is a conscientious instructor. She is knowledgeable and gentle in her guidance. As an adult student, I like the fact that she allows me to take the lead in what I want to play.

My son has been taking lessons from Laurie for over a month and we have already experienced improvements. She is patient, as well as attentive to his needs and means of learning. I would and have recommended her to my friends and family.

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.

South Pasadena, CA

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. ;)

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.
