Customer Testimonies:

"Hi Nancy and Jet,
I wanted to let you both know that our group had a wonderful time last Saturday. It was such a great experience that several couples mentioned they would like to do this again. Maybe a Summer cooking lesson. The layout was perfect and allowed everyone to see and hear. And the food was excellent. I'm not sure if I'm talented enough to make everything, but it will be fun to try.  Tom"
"It was such a nice experience being in your shop.  I enjoyed the cooking class with Jasper.  Everyone was so friendly.  Thank you again.  Donna""Last nights dinner class was a perfect 10.  From start to finish, each dish was something doable at home and delicious.
I would love the potato recipe.  Thanks for sharing and you do a wonderful job in your demonstrations.
Marti Wilkinson
PS. Barry thought it was your best so far and can't wait for me to make the dishes!"

Whether you grow your own veggies or buy them at the farmers’ market, you’ll love the fabulous flavor they get from the grill. We’ll show you how to grill what’s fresh! Shishito Peppers, bell peppers, onions, corn, summer squash, tomatoes… Then turn them into fabulous summer dishes that keep their color and flavor. Try Blistered Summer Squash, Peppers, and Scallions with Goat Cheese. Once you sample Grilled Corn, Tomato, and Red Onion Salad with a Fresh Basil Vinaigrette, you'll know it's just the thing with grilled chicken or steak or burgers. Until, of course, you try Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Cilantro Peanut Dipping Sauce (did you know you can grow peanuts in KC?) and a Grilled Green Onion and Black Sesame Seed Flatbread.  Then as you savor every bite, we’ll talk about all the variations of these recipes…. You’ll have more ideas than you know what to do with! Cheers!

So you can have family and friends over, turn on the oven, and you’re good to serve up a feast. We’ll make a zesty Polenta Crusted Italian Sausage Pie, made with local Italian Sausage. Church Supper Chicken and Wild Rice Hot Dish is a breeze with rotisserie chicken to the rescue. Lastly, A warm Autumn Dried Apple Compote can do double duty for breakfast with toast or as a dessert with store-bought or homemade pound cake. And a surprise--Karen's easy gift-from-the-kitchen that you can make ahead for holiday giving.
