What People are Saying About our Classes & Staff
"Merry Christmas ! It has been a great year thanks to your business and new friendships.
I love sharing how I am taking Cooking Classes, especially this past weekend with
my extended family at our annual Christmas party. I can't wait for the New Year
and classes to start up again!"
"We used your Beet Tartare recipe from our last visit on Christmas Eve, and it was
a big hit!"
- Tom & Patti
"Thank you for a delightful Friday Date Night - a Night in Paris! The group was
delightful; the food delicious; the learning excellent; the wines far better than
expected. Joyce and I had a wonderful time and will do it again. Meeting the chefs
and the "dates" was fun. Again, thanks so very much. I used the Los Vascos chardonnay
from Chile with crab cakes last night and a great fit! Thanks again."
"We tried the Gold Rush Martinis last night and boy....were they good! The hardest
to find ingredient was the Calvados...but thanks to my neighborhood gourmet market,
they had some imported from France! What a great recipe!"
"I sent out an e-mail to all my friends about the wine club and signed up myself
on line this morning. I think it is a wonderful idea. I love the wines that you
have and feel the price is fantastic. You do not have to pay a lot of money for
a great bottle of wine".
"When we moved to La Quinta, our LA friends would ask me 'what are you going to
do there?' My reply was to meet people/friends through COOKING CLASSES, art classes
(I oil paint) and whatever. And so your business opened and here I am ....meeting
people through the cooking classes. I have actually met 2 very good friends now
because your classes".
"Dear Andie, Wanted to thank you so very much for the class last night. As soon
as I can I'm back for the GS 39 knife - and another class. I rearranged the knife
drawer this morning so they are on a towel side by side, instead of on top of each

with your incredibly delicious meal. We will be back!"

Praise for Our Private Events
"Just a note to let you know you really threw a wonderful event. I was inspired!
I might even take up cooking! It was over the top! Educational, fun, full of good
wine, super food and of course extraordinary girlfriends! Andie, Katie, Jane and
everyone at "Cooking with Class" went to the extreme for the Girlfriends! A very
special and memorable night."
"Thank you for arranging last night's event. It was outstanding - they really pull
out all the stops. The "cork dork" aka Sommelier Katie was fun and informative.
What can I say about Andie's cooking --- WOW! My vote is to go as often as they
will take us --- let's go!"
"Wanted to take a moment to thank you both for a superior Shenandoah designer event!
We couldn-t have been more pleased. I think everyone came away with a good training
education and had loads of fun!!"
"Our guests woke up still glowing from their fabulous evening with you and the Cooking
with Class Staff!! It was the highlight of their trip and they asked to do it again
next year with You......I was pleased they were happy, they were pleased that they
were happy and I know that you're always pleased to have your customers leave happy,
too. Barbara said that it was the best fish she has ever eaten, anywhere, and she
travels often and eats well wherever she goes. So kudos to you!"
"Andie --- thanks so much for being such a special part of our 2008 festival! While
I didn't get to see your presentation first hand, I did get to see some great video
of you, both on stage and in the Tasting Tent. Today, AFW ... tomorrow, the Food
Network! Here's hoping you don't forget all the -little people who've been rooting
for ya from the beginning ... !"

More Praise for Our Kids Summer Cooking Camps
"We can't hear enough from our daughter Cassidy on just how much fun she had...thank
"Dear Jane, Jeanette, and Andie - I just wanted to thank you all once again for
the most fantastic camp experience my daughter, Gabrielle, has ever had. It was
well worth the price. She came home every night so excited about everything she
learned that day, geography, history, and stories and customs, from each country
they "visited". Her palette has expanded as she tried all types of foods and seasonings
she had not tried before. Thank you for the extra bonus of manners, table setting,
and etiquette. The party, the food, the decorations, the ceremony was such an extra
added bonus. All the children seemed to leave today with such individual, incredible
experiences. We will most certainly be back!"
