Reviews from students:
“Definitely exceeded my expectations! Loved the intense focus on format, mechanics, logistics of constructing a BOOK as well as the nuts and bolts of recipe documentation. The templates are super helpful, the links are wonderful.”
“The community of classmates is really nice. Your warm presentation style is personal and encouraging but at the same time, you set a tone of “You can do it! Get it done!”
“Ellen provides an excellent framework, and a wealth of information, when it comes to writing your very own family cookbook. The classes were just the right combination of instruction, food stories and anecdotes, and encouragement to move forward with confidently completing such a big project. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time for my children, and never would have gotten going without the invite to the class from a friend, or the professional and personable direction from Ellen – highly recommend!”
