FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I will have an initial chat with the student to understand their short term cooking goals, What inspired them to take this step, and identify a plan that will meet their cooking objectives. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Practice, Practice, and Practice. I started cooking since I was 13. My mom was sick, so I had to step in to cook for my family. Since then, I have been cooking. Now I have 2 boys and a dog and a husband who are very demanding and always hungry when it comes to food. Just feeding them alone has made me realize my passion for cooking. I spend at least an hour cooking every day and spend several hours on the weekend exploring cuisines and I am an avid reader of cookery sites, posts, and forums.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My pricing depends on your objectives.

Generally, I charge 45-60$ per hour per person which should include your ingredients and the meal you cook. You can box it up and take it with you after the class. The price can vary depending on what we cook (since some of the dishes can be gourmet and so the cost can vary)

However, if you sign up for a long term class, I will charge you 40$ per session

If you want to spend the evening with your partner, learning to cook and then eat after, it will be 70$ per hour

I generally prefer to give the classes from my house, since I know where the ingredients are. However, if you prefer for me to come to your place, I will have to first evaluate whether it is feasible and if it is, you may have to do a few extra things to make it happen (prep work at your kitchen, pay mileage, etc)


How did you get started teaching?

Practice, Practice, and Practice. I started cooking since I was 13. My mom was sick, so I had to step in to cook for my family. Since then, I have been cooking. Now I have 2 boys and a dog and a husband who are very demanding and always hungry when it comes to food. Just feeding them alone has made me realize my passion for cooking. I spend at least an hour cooking every day and spend several hours on the weekend exploring cuisines and I am an avid reader of cookery sites, posts, and forums.


What types of students have you worked with?

I started exploring this path to teach after helping a lot of my friends in fixing their messy attempts to make a dish. I will typically get 3-5 calls a day from my friends all over the world. "Hey! I tried doing this and the dish is so watery, no tasty, gooey, etc and I will work with them to fix it and usually it results in a happy ending and they will thank me for helping them out" Then I started teaching kids and friends and neighbors and that's when I got really interested in this. Then, we entertained people home and they would love my cooking and we will end up spending hours going over the recipes. Now I am here and I want to share my happiness with others.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Cookery is a life long journey. Take this step with the right expectations. I am only going to be a small circle of influence in your cooking expedition. Have an open mind. If your food didn't turn out great, keep trying. Enjoy the cooking process as much as you enjoy eating it.
