Get ready to get a little messy in this very hands-on class. We'll be making dough, learning about great ways to present food to make it more appetizing, and generally having a whole lot of fun playing with our food!

Feedback from Past Participants

I've already sent your note to my husband and parents! I absolutely love this e-mail and it's so great to get your input. I knew she'd love the class, but so much about my daughter is how she connects with others. She really liked you and the other girls - she is a no nonsense girl but at the same time, very sensitive.

I think you did an INCREDIBLE job on this first time camp with older kids. Thank you so much for offering it! I noticed the food ALL over your floor and felt bad that things got so messy.

I'm glad we got you in the early stages of this b/c I have a feeling once this really takes off you won't be able to individualize notes to the kids/parents for every camp! Thanks again for everything!
