    Shoshana makes the hardest dishes easy for anyone to replicate . Her classes are easy to follow and so much FUN . One of my favorite classes was challah baking , I was always so intimated to make challah , after her class I started making it weekly and I always get compliments from guests. I’m looking forward to the next class.

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

We speak over the phone first to discuss what they are looking for, then if needed we have an in person consultation.  Set up time& place and let the cooking begin. For new clients I do require a deposit before meeting and travel expenses if the distance is greater than 25 miles.

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

certified in food safety & handling

years if real life experience 

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

$30 consult fee - if hired 50% is applied to hourly fee

$30 per hour for private lessons 4 hour minimum

How did you get started teaching?

i was a preschool teacher for 20 yrs and I used teaching in my classroom 

this grew into classes for teens & adults 

What types of students have you worked with?

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I just hosted a food tasting to introduce people to my new chef service it was very well received 

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

look for someone that is passionate about cooking and truly loves it. Someone who cooks out of love &  shares that joy with their students.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

why am I learning to cook?  What type of foods do I want to cook?  Do I have a good space to cook in?
