My second degree is in Culinary Arts (my first degree is Psychology), and I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Miami. Since graduation, some of my industry experience includes cooking at a Disney Resort as well as Catering for Aramark. I have also owned my own catering and cake business. I have taught cooking and baking classes to both adults and kids online and in person.  

I am so excited to be able to share my knowledge and look forward to seeing your student in class! 
The recipe that will be posted each week will also contain a supply list. The supply list will list everything your student needs to have in place before class starts. For example, gathering ingredients, bowls, baking dishes, measuring cups etc. Usually these items are already in your kitchen. This is called Mise En Place and I would list this on each recipe for class.
This is a cooking class. We will use the stove, oven, knives and other household kitchen items. Parental supervision is recommended.
If your student has any allergies, please contact me and I would be happy to provide you with a recipe with substitutions. This also applies to students that wish to join the class but may need vegetarian friendly substitutions. I have personally followed a vegetarian diet for many years and will be happy to make sure your student feels included.
