Summer 2015

Why did you start offering classes for adults? Children?

I really wanted to teach people how to cook from the heart and use their creativity to lead the way in the kitchen. At ZeeTheCook, we aren’t necessarily looking to create future chefs, but rather- future independent adults who can take care of themselves and their families regardless of which profession they choose to pursue.

What is your favorite part about cooking? And the cooking classes?

My favorite part about cooking is the creativity involved. Sometimes I walk into my kitchen without a clue about what I’m about to create. I just gather a bunch of different ingredients, and always finish with a masterpiece.

The best part about the cooking classes is watching others get just as excited as I do in the kitchen. It’s a therapeutic experience that I wish everyone could experience, so seeing my students get excited is what I love to see. The cooking classes allow my students to socialize with other foodies; they learn, share, laugh and build great memories. This makes me happy…
