“Jackie is so knowledgeable and a joy to have in your home! She provides lots of kitchen tips that help with efficiency in the kitchen.  I booked Jackie for an Instant Pot class and she did an amazing job of demystifying this newest “must have” kitchen appliance.  We prepared chili, poached chicken and risotto and they came out so delicious.  She was very thorough and covered all aspects of the Instant Pot – we discussed proper cleaning, venting, releasing, and how to program the unit correctly.  She also provided me with many Instant Pot resources online for recipes and gave me a very high comfort level with my new kitchen gadget.  Thank you, Jackie for making cooking fun!”

We'll decide on a menu, I'll provide materials you keep including the recipes and resources you need to incorporate these new dishes into your everyday cooking.

I enjoyed the relaxed and interactive atmosphere. I enjoyed the healthy tips and have incorporated them in my daily diet already!

It was informative in a relaxed setting. All of the great tips and ideas for prepping and cooking are very useful.

The best part was how relaxed the environment was.

Best part? Your personality. the fun I had learning some new things.
