“I totally enjoyed your class at Planet Organic tonight, Chef Laura: already signed up for March Muffin Madness class. I am just starting up with healthy foods, trying to change eating habits, and pulling my family along with me. When I tried your recipes at home, they were so good my husband ate them!” 

Heather, breast cancer survivor, Planet Organic Class, 2013

We really enjoyed the Planet Organic lesson last week. As a 'newby' cook I not only learned a great deal about the preparation of Warming Kichadi and Raita but also technique. I have been a hacker with vegetables but having watched you I’m confident that I can now practice a wider range of knife strokes. We are shopping for the ingredients for both and hope to experiment soon. See you on Dec. 12th for Whole Foods Christmas Baking class.” 

Bernie C., student, November 2012

Your Winter Salads class was fantastic, Chef Laura! I enjoyed it so much, I made the Mood Maker recipe for my son and his family for dinner, and every one loved it! Your little boy looks wonderful: you have really inspired me to try some new things – thank you!”
