Elana, your classes and the recipes I’ve learned have gotten me through the holidays. I cooked the brisket with some English accoutrements (minty peas, ginger carrots and Yorkshire pudding) on Christmas day, along with the pumpkin pie. On New Years I cooked your Chicken Tagine with Couscous, and your Blackberry Chiantishire dessert. Needless to say there was some great spiel over the food cooked and I’ve got you to thank for it. See you in class!Sophia Marsh-Ochsner

The Roasted Tomato on Multi-grain Toast with Raw Honey and Fresh Basil was an unexpected surprise!! I loved the combination of the sweet raw honey with the savory roasted tomato. I’ve made it several times already, and everyone loves it as much as I do!Diana
