Edie’s approach is very accessible and appealed to a wide variety of cooking abilities. She encouraged questions and a conversation during the demo, which was great.

We decided to try Edie’s virtual cooking class for a team building event since our team is all remote during COVID.  Everyone had the most wonderful time!
The event was well orchestrated from start to finish.  Edie was incredibly responsive, provided clear information and recommendations on the best type of class to run for our group.  She was thoughtful about providing detailed instructions, recipes and substitutions!  Our group had quite a few vegans and vegetarians and some are pretty picky eaters, so it was important that she proactively provide choices for different people.
The actual event was GREAT!  Edie is clearly an excellent cook so it was great to see her wizardry in the kitchen.  But her approach is very accessible and appealed to a wide variety of cooking abilities.  She encouraged questions and a conversation during the demo, which was great.  
The recipe she chose was delicious!  Just exotic enough to feel like we were attempting a meal we wouldn’t normally cook, but simple enough that we could replicate on our own! 
Thank you Edie for a wonderful event!  We will do another one soon!

It really helped spread some virtual camaraderie, which is exactly what we were looking for.

Cooking with Edie was so relaxed, educational and playful. She made me feel like I didn’t need to be so rigid with recipes and there were many different delicious approaches to take.
It was fun seeing all of my coworker’s kitchens and some even brought in their kids to help, which was a nice way to extend the shared experience!

So, if you are looking for something fun to do for a special occasion, birthday, or a way to spice up your quarantine, absolutely book an evening with Edie!

If you are looking for a night of great times and even greater food, look no further than Edie’s virtual cooking class!
I scheduled an event for a birthday gift, and could not be more happy with the outcome. Edie is an excellent chef who walked us through everything from the doneness of our food, to educating us on the origins of the cuisine and how all of the ingredients were important to the dish. She was a delight to work with and the set up for the night was absolutely seamless. She provided a full menu for the evening including a surprise dessert, and was always open to answering questions before, during, and after the event.
So, if you are looking for something fun to do for a special occasion, birthday, or a way to spice up your quarantine, absolutely book an evening with Edie!

Our Zoom class was like cooking with an extremely knowledgeable friend who loves cooking and wants to share techniques and guidance with you.

Cooking with Edie was both educational and lots of fun. Our Zoom class was like cooking with an extremely knowledgeable friend who loves cooking and wants to share techniques and guidance with you. I learned new knife skills techniques and how to prepare and cook certain vegetables that I had never made before; I felt absolutely comfortable asking many questions, and Edie was happy to answer them all. She also watched my technique and made thoughtful suggestions as we went.
I also greatly appreciated her focus on ingredient substitution possibilities, which will make it much easier for me to use the techniques and preparations moving forward with whatever I happen to have on hand or can find at the grocery store — we made a chicken dish, which she showed me how to adapt to various other protein types, accompanied by a number of different vegetables (and a couscous dish so delicious that I ate lots of it before the rest of the meal was prepared!).
I highly recommend cooking with Edie.

The Zoom class itself was full of laughter, verbal easy to follow step by step directions, food facts, and a delicious end result.

We recently used Creative Cook Co. to host a company wide virtual cooking class to keep our employees connected and Edie was fantastic to work with throughout the whole process! She took time to recommend recipe options for us to choose from, provided allergy and diet alternatives, and was sure to give our employees ample time to collect necessary ingredients before the class itself.
The Zoom class itself was full of laughter, verbal easy to follow step by step directions, food facts, and a delicious end result.  No question was left unanswered and everyone had a fantastic meal at the end. We would not hesitate to use Creative Cook Co again when hosting another virtual cooking class. Thank you Edie!
Thank you again for such an enjoyable experience.

Edie conducted the class in a very fun and playful way, leaving room for questions, and making us feel part of it.

The whole experience was delightful. Since the day we got the ingredients list in advance, I knew it was going to be great. The ingredients included substitutes and vegan/vegetarian options, which is very thoughtful. Our team is spreaded across different countries, and not all the ingredients might be available for everyone, so I appreciate having more than a single option.
Edie conducted the class in a very fun and playful way, leaving room for questions, and making us feel part of it.
And the final result was absolutely delicious! The taste and the textures combined perfectly, and the whole making process was very enjoyable and easy to follow.

Leaving the event, you feel that you both learned something and had a great time.

Edie does an amazing job creating a fun atmosphere centered around delicious, healthy, authentic food. Leaving the event, you feel that you both learned something and had a great time. She made our remote work event fun and friendly, and I would recommend her for any remote cooking experience.

Overall Edie was a pleasure to work with and her class was super fun!

I reached out to Edie to host an event for my company and she was responsive, helpful, and accommodating from day 1! She gave us plenty of recipe options to choose from, as well as vegan and vegetarian alternatives, to really fit the needs of our class. We ended up doing a Sensational Salad Cooking Class and made the Sweet Potato, Avocado, and Chicken Salad, and it was absolutely delicious and full of flavor! Throughout the class Edie was able to teach us some knife skills and different cooking tips which I loved. Overall Edie was a pleasure to work with and her class was super fun!

She did a great job of keeping us on task, walking us through the various dishes, and showing us how hers looked so we could compare.

Cooking with Chef Edie was delightful!
She worked with me on a creative menu (Spanish Tapas) for a fun girls night, including appetizer and wine/drink recommendations to compliment our tapas. She provided a comprehensive grocery list that made it easy to shop, and was available to answer all my questions prior to our scheduled class.
During the class Edie made it a point to get to know our group by name and interact with us as if we were in person. She did a great job of keeping us on task, walking us through the various dishes, and showing us how hers looked so we could compare. The food was delicious! We all learned some new techniques and tried some recipes of items we had not made before. The best part is that the food was not intimidating or overly complicated, so they are absolutely dishes I will make again. Highly recommend a cooking class with Chef Edie!

I cannot recommend Edie enough, her custom menu and her class far exceeded my expectations.

I wanted to make sure my boyfriend’s birthday in quarantine was still a fun and memorable one. We love to cook together and have perfected a few meals, but a good burger was something we hadn’t been able to achieve – a bummer since it’s his favorite food.
Once I found Edie, I knew she could not only help us perfect our burger recipe but show us how to build a meal around it. She tailored the menu to our tastes, made sure to recommend burger buns to accommodate my gluten allergy, and even was able to make cooking fun for our two friends who joined but don’t like to cook.
Leading up to the class, Edie’s communication was amazing. She checked in to make sure we would like the menu, to offer up tips and suggestions and even just to chat about things we had in common. I cannot recommend Edie enough, her custom menu and her class far exceeded my expectations. We laughed, we cooked, we had an unforgettable experience.
And, I can’t wait to make the spicy tomato jam and coleslaw again!

We really enjoyed cooking with her. We can only recommend booking a class

From the first contact until after the class, Edie was always super helpful, creative, understanding and fast responding, communication overall was just quick and easy. We booked a corporate class for up to 30 people and the recipe was a light salad with variations for all food preferences (vegan, vegetarian, gluten free), the instructions during the class were super helpful and helped to make the class really feel like real cooking and not only as adding ingredients to the plate, Edie also had some great recommendations and tips for us and we really enjoyed cooking with her. We can only recommend booking a class with her. 
Thanks a lot for everything Edie, I received a lot of positive feedback and I am so glad everybody did it 👍 Hopefully we will be able to cooking with you soon 🙂

thank you again for a fun filled evening and a nice diversion from all that is going on.

Just wanted to thank you again for a fun filled evening and a nice diversion from all that is going on. It was great to learn some new cooking techniques and tips. I am looking forward to entertaining with my new dishes. Mostly, I am looking forward to all my leftovers tonight.
My friends and family really enjoyed the class as much as I did. The husbands appreciated the final results. [My son] scored when he chose the cooking class as a birthday gift.

You made it easy by adding simple tips and instructions and every one of us will take those with us to the kitchen many time

Thanks for a truly awesome event!
Everyone had so much fun – from aged 3 through those as old as me, it was both great fun, and our families thoroughly enjoyed the results. In particular, you made it easy by adding simple tips and instructions and every one of us will take those with us to the kitchen many times.
We will definitely want to do this again and spread the word!
Thanks again!!

Each household had Edie as a private cooking coach right on their screen!

My son adores cooking and to ensure he still had a memorable birthday in quarantine, my family, with the help and expertise of Edie, of course, surprised him with a virtual cooking class!

Edie’s email communication with us leading up to the class was exceptional. She tailored a menu specifically around his tastes and skill level. We asked Edie if she could incorporate some ingredients he hadn’t used before, and whether she could accommodate a gluten allergy, and she delivered on both requests. Edie thought of everything to make us feel prepared ahead of time.

During the virtual class Edie talked us through the entire setup for the meal’s preparation and guided us through 3 courses step by step. Each household had Edie as a private cooking coach right on their screen! She was charming, attentive, and very patient—providing tips, checking in with each kitchen, and letting us ask all the questions we wanted. The meal was absolutely delicious and the main course of grilled Za’atar lamb chops with roasted Spring vegetables and a preserved lemon Tahini sauce blew us away!

I highly recommend Edie’s virtual class if your friends, family or co-workers want to feel connected, need a morale boost, or want to celebrate a special occasion. We had a blast, lots of laughs, and it made my son’s birthday very special despite the social distancing!

We had a fantastic time with Edie and are looking forward to our next class with her!

Edie was a phenomenal chef, and was able to guide a virtual cooking class full of kitchen newbies in creating a delicious meal all while providing entertaining insight and background to the meal we were preparing.
She was excellent at communicating the required ingredients ahead of time, as well as providing vegan/vegetarian substitutes, and ensured all of the preparation steps were clear and easy to follow. We had a fantastic time with Edie and are looking forward to our next class with her!

You made my son’s birthday something special that engaged all of us in such a difficult time.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience yesterday.  I just had some Turkish cake for breakfast.  ☺  Two of the kitchens had actually cooked 4 chicken thighs so that we can have a delicious dinner again tonight!

I’d highly recommend working with Edie and hope I have the occasion to do so again soon!

I worked with Edie to put together a virtual cooking night to celebrate my birthday in the midst of quarantine. Edie was fantastic in working with me to design a menu that accommodated my family and friends’ dietary needs as well as our limited grocery availability as a result of the pandemic.

The evening was a great time! Edie was thoughtful to ensure no one got left behind and taught us several helpful tricks along the way — I’ll never cut an onion the same way again! I’d highly recommend working with Edie and hope I have the occasion to do so again soon!

Everyone remarked what a fun and novel experience it was.

Thank you again for doing this with us! Everyone remarked what a fun and novel experience it was. None of us were able to finish what we cooked in one meal though! It was delicious and a great learning experience. We also shared one of the pears for dessert and used the other chopped into a very rich oatmeal the next morning.

My mom hasn’t stopped raving about the experience and the food

Thank you so much for the class! The recipes were amazing and the grocery list was super easy to follow, having substitutions that were cheaper or easier to find was super helpful as well. Everyone had so much fun and the meal was amazing! My mom hasn’t stopped raving about the experience and the food (especially the carrots). Thank you so much for helping us learn how to cook an amazing meal!

And the food, oh soooo good!

We celebrated our 16th Wedding Anniversary by treating ourselves to a private cooking class and we are so glad we did. Edie planned a very special menu for us well in advance so we could get everything. When it came time to get started we enjoyed our virtual class and truly enjoyed meeting and cooking with Edie! And the food, oh soooo good!
