You asked for it

Thank you to all the people who attended the session I gave at Planet Kids Bellevue tonight "Beyond Mac & Cheese – Learn to cook a home-made Family-Friendly Dinner every day"!

You asked me about the following:

Cooking schools:

I forgot to mention that I offer private one-on-one, or small group, cooking classes, done at your own kitchen, focused on your needs and level of skills. Look at my web site - www.wflavors.com
Also, I can help you with organizing your kitchen to make your cooking more efficient and fast, just like the pros.

I took classes at the following cooking schools:
Sur La Table
Bon Vivant
Lake Washington Technical college
Culinary Institute of America

Also check at PCC & Whole Foods

Recommended cookbooks:
Wolfgang Puck Makes it Easy, Wolfgang Puck (my favorite chef! My #1 cookbook)
Nightly Specials, Michael Lomonaco
The Babbo cookbook, Mario Batali
Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, Ina Garten (all five are very good)

Another highly recommended book:
Love and logic magic for early childhood : practical parenting from birth to six years / Jim Fay & Charles Fay

Magazine - Cooks Illustrated provides very comprehensive and detailed recipes and cooking instructions. You can learn a lot from it.

DVD’s and videos available at the local library:

Good eats/Alton Brown
Jacque Pepin’s Cooking Technique
The French Chef/Julia Child

Also, don’t forget to sign up to my blog. I just started it a few days ago and am still learning how to work with it.

Stay in touch,
