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!

About Vinit
I am a professional chemical engineer, born and brought up in India, graduated with PhD in chemical engineering from University of Delaware. Picked up cooking early on to satisfy my own deep desire of traditional home food be it dal baati, dal dhokali, dal dhokala, lahasuni aloo sang makka roti, kadi with bajara roti, kaju ker, pachkuta, rabori, mungodi (sorry for using traditional names as there is no real short translation of these into English language)...and did not realize that it had become my passion until my dear family/friends started pointing out repeatedly. Over time my research background has infused some serious curiosity to understand the underlying science behind the art of cooking (do you know what is the secret to delicious Indian food - is it the minimum overlap of flavors in ingredients!!) and have started rethinking th
e recipes e.g. try making bread pakoda (fritter) keeping bread in the inner core and potato paste on outside instead of traditional way of doing it other way round...does it taste better and easier to coat with the wet gram flour for frying??). Cooking for me has become an endless joyful journey filled with learning and experimentation...always refreshing. Now, I try to share/teach my cooking experiences/excursions with others as time permits.

I have been singing professionally since 1991 with Los Angeles Opera, NY City Opera, Köln Opera, Covent Garden, Glimmerglass, Glyndbourne, Los Angeles Master Chorale, and as a session singer on film soundtracks and albums.

Lesley is an extremely knowledgeable voice teacher who has helped my voice tremendously. I was having trouble singing lower notes and she made me realize that I had very little support when singing. Now she has me doing exercises to strengthen my muscles and has given me great feedback during my lessons which has helped my voice tremendously. I highly recommend this teacher!

About Roxanne
You may think this is interesting, but I am the owner of a home bakery. I sell baked goods from my home and deliver to my customers...

That's what I do during the day. In the evening, I love to teach young people how to cook. Actually, it doesn't matter how old you are; if you can handle cooking utensils, follow some helpful instruction and read a recipe, you got this!

I come from a family of cooks from way back in the day. I was taught, starting at age 6, how to cook in the kitchen and handle small knives. I had my own special knife for chopping and slicing vegetables and fruits. That's all she would allow me to do for a long while. Then, my mom slowly introduced me to new things, like boiling eggs and making gravy and homemade biscuits. Not much came from a box or can back then. I learned a lot about the foundation of making a wonderf
ul meal...prep work.

It sounds a bit off-putting, but if you invest in a few handy kitchen tools, prep can be pretty easy, and a little fun! That's part of what my students will learn in my classes.

I am a learner. I love to learn! If I'm not learning, I feel half alive. That's why I love cooking and baking. There is always something new to learn and see and do. It's hands-on, and that's my style of learning!

Many people can follow a recipe and cook a pretty good meal, but when it comes to looking into the fridge and the pantry and pulling something together, that's a whole different story. I love creating dishes that make my family wonder where I got the recipe from. When I say, "I just made it up!" That's a good feeling.

I not only want to teach students how to read a recipe and make a meal, I want to teach them some of the science behind cooking; why you should be careful when a recipe calls for salted or unsalted butter; or how to melt chocolate the old-fashioned way!

I'm very excited about taking this journey with each of my students. I love interacting with people and fostering a loving community.

So, come on, let's do this together!

Stacy does not hesitate to get to know her students and she will immediately modify any lrecipe necessary. I had some food allergies and if I needed an adjusted recipe, she already had one provided. She is clearly passionate about everything involving the kitchen and her enthusiasm is infectious. She istantly becomes someone you want to impress and she helps you do just that. Amazing. Love her, want to take her agin.
