Hello. My name is Lori Watkins. Cooking is my passion! I loved watching my mom cook as a child. I have had 2 cookbooks published and enjoy cooking for small crowds. I used to own and operate my own catering company. I often cook dinner for my church as they serve dinner on Wednesday night. I get such joy out of cooking
Mainly I enjoy people eating and enjoying my food.
Lori is very thorough in her instructions and her passion for cooking great food is equaled by her passion to teach others to do the same. She has a very warm and friendly personality which makes the learning experience very enjoyable. And everything she cooks is amazing!
Lori was friendly and patient, which is important considering I don't know how to cook much! She thoroughly explained each step in a way that made it easy for me to follow along. Great experience!
OMG we made a southern dish that made me think my granny made it!!! It’s in her cookbook. She was very professional and got to my house on time with the food.
She came to my home and made ME feel comfortable!!! Lol. It was just me so it didn’t take long to cook the food so we sat and talked and I felt like I knew her for years already. We cooked fried chicken!
Deciding on the price and who will do the shopping after we determine the menu.
Have taken a few lessons but mainly experience from cooking for years and owning my catering company.
Minimum of $50/hr per student, not including food. And $25/hr after first/hr.
People having tasted my food and reading my cookbooks wanted to learn from me.
