    The Chef (Chef Val) was very professional and patient with the beginner students. We all teamed up and made some amazing vegetarian burgers and sweet potato fries. We will definitely invite her back for another couples retreat class.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I currently provide nutritional instruction to several Senior Independent Living facilities and the participants are always eager to learn how to apply different spices and herbs as a way to enhance their food choices (replacing salt and somethimes sugar).  I always start with an introduction, prepare a sample using salt/sugar subsitutes, referring to plant based options & protein replacements, let the attendees sample and tell me what they taste and then I share my secrent ingredients to their amazement.  Never a disappointed client yet.
