What a fun evening!  I wasn't even home yet and I was getting texts about what a special night it was.  There was a lot of great chemistry and Julia, you really know how to whip a group into shape! And, the food was amazing.  I am still thinking about that risotto and the berry cobbler! My dream of being at one of your cooking events came true, LOL. I know that everyone enjoyed the evening and your staff was wonderful.

Thank you so much! Everyone really had a blast and we’ve gotten amazing feedback from the participants. It was also really wonderful that everyone with an allergy was able to fully participate and eat all of the courses. We can’t wait to host another event with you!!!

I just want to say how grateful I am to you, James and Francisco for such an amazing event for our students and caregivers. They had such an AMAZING time, and are still talking about it to this day. We couldn't offer programming such as these without amazing partners like you, so thank you!
