I love cooking and I am very enthusiastic about it. I still get excited over a beautiful cut of beef or the perfume of fresh cut basil. My teaching stems from my natural joy of cooking and using fresh ingredients. I'm patient, fun and I truly enjoy teaching my students to cook.

I also offer small party cooking classes where I teach 3 course dinners. These classes are limited to groups of 4 and are booked by calling for rates.

2 menu item classes for up to groups of six are booked by calling for rates.

I had a wonderful lesson with Chef Stevie. She explains why you are doing what you are doing and is super easy to follow along. Then end product - my meal was amazing and my family loved it too. My son said it was his favorite meal of all time and that includes restaurants. Success! And I can’t wait to do another class.

To say that I was wowed by her creativity and food presentation, will be putting it mildly! My taste buds were titillated beyond measure! I plan on having Angelique teach my 14 year old her cooking skills as well. Way to go Angie!

I am a home-maker and I have been practising my home cooking for years. I would like to share my love of cooking with a broader audience. I cook a wide array of dishes, however my speciality is Eastern European cooking. My dishes are perfect for those with sensitive stomachs and low tolerance for spiciness.

I have been studying German with Tatiana for several months and it has been a wonderful experience. After our initial conversation, I knew that I had found the right teacher. Tatiana's lessons are always interesting and enjoyable. Our lessons are conducted entirely in German and Tatiana is able to explain complex ideas and topics in ways that teach and challenge me at the same time. Since I am an advanced learner, we also spend time reviewing grammar, working on increasing vocabulary, and reading texts. Every week my fluency increases.

Tatiana is knowledgeable, patient, and an excellent teacher. I would recommend her to anyone who is trying to learn and/or improve their German. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student, Tatiana is the teacher for you. I give her my highest recommendation.
Karina
Tatiana is amazing! I really would never trade her for the world. She is patient, nonjudgmental, knowledgeable, thorough, clear, and just overall great. If it weren’t for her I would’ve quit a long time ago. I highly recommend her. You won’t be disappointed. Danke schön Tatiana!!
Annabel J.
I've been studying Russian with Tatiana for close to six months now at two lessons per week. From the very beginning, it's been an immensely fruitful and deeply enjoyable experience -- I feel my progress in the language is palpable (and I was a total beginner at 23). Our lessons are fun, and the homework assignments (most often, textbook exercises and reading responses to Russian-language films) challenging (though never to the point of being stressful). A huge bonus is that our textbook is online and free. I've been deliriously happy with my experience, and cannot recommend Tatiana enough.

As a certified holistic health coach and personal chef I've been cooking and teaching since 2008, specializing in vegan + vegetarian cooking. I meet my students where they're at. With each lesson we'll build a strong foundation of healthy cooking basics from salad dressing to dips, frittatas and plant based swaps.There's no right time to start. All you need is a desire to try new things. Progress not perfection. I email my students the recipes we've made after every class, so they can have an ongoing collection of go to recipes.

My students have expressed having an easier time in their day to day schedule within the first month and more confidence in the kitchen and an overall better sense of wellbeing within the first 3 months.
