Students who took group classes say...
I liked that Lauren created a class environment that was professional, but relaxed. I never felt intimidated to ask when I didn't know what something was and I really appreciated that when learning a new skill. I liked learning how flavors go together and how to cook with new ingredients that I normally would avoid at the store because I didn't know what to do with them.
Lauren is phenomenal! She is engaging, kind, knowledgable, and helpful. She truly cares about each and every student, and she presented information in an accessible and understandable way. I loved our time in the kitchen!
My passion for food grew immensely and I walked away knowing so many more skills than I could have imagined. Watching Lauren cook was like watching a sculptor with their clay. So beautiful and moving. The hands-on work really allowed for a deeper learning experience.
Lauren is awesome, very knowledgable and approachable. I appreciated that she had clearly thought out each lesson and really packed a ton of information into each class. She has a great attitude, and overall is a joy to be in the kitchen with.
