    She is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about foods, taste and aspects related to jams and jellies. She works very hard and her students will learn that also.

  • Sharolie Jansen

    I've been around chefs before and some can be quite intimidating. Donna does a great job of teaching without the need to feel stupid or inadequate. I left her class feeling more inspired and creative.

  • Acie Vincent
