What You’ll Learn:

  • Recipe Booklet: Students will be provided with a recipe booklet at the start of class. The classes will be fun, instructional but informal enough for the participants to chat as we go along and enjoy themselves.
  • Skills: Anyone can learn how to cook! You need a good instructor and a pinch of fun and a dash of creativity! Recipes are easy to follow and menus can be customized by client request. Watch your confidence grow as you learn how to cook! Your team will need to collaborate, delegate, communicate and work toward a common goal. There will be sharing, problem solving and creativity and some fun times!

I receive calls regularly from clients asking me:

-How to eat more healthfully, how to manage a specific diet, OR do I cook vegan, keto, paleo, vegetarian, gluten free-

-OR, can I cook a low cholesterol menu, can I use organic food products, can I follow their doctor’s recommended diet- etc, etc, etc!

The answer to all this is- YES!

The fact is, food is important!

Good food that tastes great is even better.

Food that supports your dietary goals while pleasing your palate is the best!

I care about getting things right and listening to you. My goal is to customize meals to my client’s dietary goals and food preferences to ensure the best experience possible for you~

Your Chef,

Susan Ytterberg
