Meet your host, chef
and culinary coach
I've been cooking professionally for over 25 years, from Michelin-star restaurants to luxury hotels, five star resorts and private kitchens.
During the height of the pandemic, I lost my job but found a new passion: teaching adventurous home cooks how to craft restaurant meals from their own homes. I have since taught hundreds of families, and cannot wait to help you create extraordinary meals from your own kitchen.
Surely! There are so many ways to cater to restrictions and I can give you multiple ideas to make your dinner "inclusive". Working at hotels and restaurants all these years, I've come across all kinds of limitations whether they are spurred by allergies, social choices, religious beliefs, lifestyle changes or the latest health craze. We can tailor anything to fit your needs.
I have dietary restrictions, is this for me?
The duration of the workshop lasts 10 days. The workshops will be spread out so you have time to digest the information. You'll get homework and you'll send it in so I can review your ideas/plans and make sure you're getting the feedback and support your need to make this dinner happen and not just fall to the back burner again.
will it be for 10 straight days?
I know you can sometimes feel that you need to have a home straight outta House Beautiful magazine, but truth is, it's about the experience and how you make your guests, your friends, your family feel when they're in your home. So let's be creative! You can do this no matter what size space you have at home.
I don't host dinners because I don't have space
For sure! I am here to help you plan your epic dinner and if you've been in any of my classes before, you know that I love answering all your questions to help you. You'll be able to chat with me live and you'll also get dedicated time for Q&A during our weekly happy hour at Friday Night Sip Sip Hooray!
are the classes live? can I ask questions?
I know! You're a busy body and there's a chance you might miss one or two sessions, but I got you covered! The replays will be available right after every workshop so you can catch them at your own time to stay up to date.
what if i miss one of the workshops?
100% F-R-E-E. The workshop training is packed with value so that you have all the tools you need to plan your own epic dinner, regardless of size, occasion or theme. You'll walk away with your own action plan to confidently host any type of dinner/lunch or brunch gathering.
is this really free? is there a catch?
don't worry, we have the answers!
