What people say


(mother of 6)

After attending and participating in virtual  culinary sessions with Barbara, I felt more confident in creating more delicious meals for my family and friends.

Thank you, Barbara, for organizing the ‘Knights can cook’ club.  I was very impressed with the organization and professionalism of this after school program.


(Ninety for 90 participant)

That was a great session.   I think I’ll be able to use all the recipes. They all looked so good!
