Hands on Cooking classes in Fort Collins, Colorado. Hands on experience in the kitchen and tasting at the table care both essential to the learning process. Tasting is key to the palate and learning to balance flavors.

Upon graduation from Culinary School of the Rockies in Boulder, I began working throughout Northern Colorado as a private chef, cooking for families and small private parties.  I found myself spending my day at my client’s home, just me and their dog, and came home to me and my dog, and I hadn’t talked to anyone all day.  I hadn’t lived in Fort Collins long enough to have established a good support network and needed more people in my life.  I fell into teaching when friends and family asked me to teach them how to cook fish or how to “fill in the blank,” and discovered with some surprise that I loved teaching.  I moved into the house on Mulberry, put up a sign, and started my new life.  I have met wonderful people, have made fast friends in all walks of life, and have found my niche and a calling that deeply satisfies me, and am grateful for this new life.
