Cooking Class Reviews

I have been attending classes for over 3 yrs

"I have been attending classes for over 3 yrs. The chefs are congenial, the staff is very nice and the chow is spectacular! I already know how to cook, but I learn something from each class I take…and have a BALL!"

Provided me with easy to make and very delicious recipes!

"Culinary Events Northwest cooking school has provided me with easy to make and very delicious recipes that never fail to impress guests at my dinner parties. I have made scores of Leslie’s recipes, as well as, those of her guest chefs, and I found that they come out right every time. By going to a cooking school, I can closely watch how to make each recipe, and to know how each recipe is supposed to taste. This provides a big advantage over cooking shows and cookbooks".

I have been attending her cooking classes for about 2 years now, and am amazed by her creativity. One can learn something new with each visit. Her classes are always fun as well as informative. She often has guest chefs too."
