“I have taken many classes with Lorie and I always leave inspired. Everything is well-planned with lots of hands-on opportunities. I always learn something new and have so much of fun in the process--and of course the food is delicious.”

If you are a “foodie” or a beginner, Lorie’s classes offer an interactive cooking experience like no other.  Classes benefit the novice cook and reignite the passion for cooking in those with years of experience.  I have learned so much from her extensive experience and have enjoyed all the “chef tricks/shortcuts” not learned in cookbooks or the run-of-the-mill classes.

"Over the years, I have taken many different cooking classes, but Lorie's are the absolute best and my favorite!  She is an extremely talented chef and teacher; you learn so much in every class - even a seasoned cook like myself!  Not only are the class menus and instructions exceptional, the atmosphere is fun, festive and you feel like family! It’s always a blast!"
