Words can't explain the positive impact Chef Ellen made on my life. Roughly two years ago I attended her "Help I Can't Cook" class where she not only taught me how to make an handle full of meals in a lesson, but instilled a passion for the culinary arts. Eager to learn more, I inquired about the different cooking classes she offered. She offered to create classes around my busy schedule. Chef Ellen is a truly outstanding chef and an amazing friend.
Chef Ellen is the mom of a friend and happens to live in the city where I currently reside. After having my second child and dealing with terrible headaches my friend suggested I contact her mom to help me out with meal prep - since cooking for my family was really the last thing I could do at that point. My experience with Chef Ellen was great and simple. She is honest and straight-forward. She was able to make really great meals for me that I just had to reheat - this truly saved me during a really hard time. I have not had a lesson from Chef Ellen but I wouldn't hesitate to do it - she knows her stuff and it would be fun! If you are thinking about taking a lesson or having her cater an event, have confidence that she will do a great job and the food will be YUMMY!!!
I took a class with Chef Ellen to learn how to make a simple chicken dinner but walked away with so much more! She doesn't teach just recipes but also skills that can be applied to all different types of food. She was very patient and understanding and proved very knowledgeable on the subject of cooking. I was very pleased with the class I took and cannot wait to go back!
such a fun class and you learn so uch
I love being in Chef Ellen's high energy cooking classes. One learns alot of techniques and how to use cooking tools. Her bridal background comes into play because she knows what basic tools are necessary for a young couple and ones to avoid. I love how she teaches you and you truly feel more comfortable in the kitchen with your skills! I can't wait to take another class with Chef Ellen1
I have attended several Chef Ellen's classes and have had fun and learned a great deal from her. She is high energy and no question can't be answered. She is very experienced yet down to earth. I took her advice and invested in several pieces of specific cookware. I highly recommend her classes as a newbie to home cooking!
In life there are imitators and there are originators, Chef Ellen is truly an originator. Your time will never be wasted and will be the most enjoyable hour you'll ever have in your life not to mention that The knowledge you obtain and the delicious food that you get to eat afterwords are the bonuses. Chef Ellen is patient, kind, pretty!, And most importantly a true joy to spend time and learn from. Her techniques and abilities could put graduates from the culinary Institute of America to shame. There is no ego, you come as you are and she treats you like a prince or princess and you leave with knowledge that you didn't have before a truly excellent experience and a delicious meal. I highly recommend Chef Ellen for teaching, catering, hosting, or anything else that involves food and entertainment she was you're number one first choice. Paul
