Is it time to become a "goddess" or "god" in the kitchen or even just learn to add some stellar, classic dishes to your repetoire?

I admit I love cooking so much but I also love even more to teach people how to cook so they become independent in their skills and can prepare a lot of tasty, healthy dishes for themselves. So many of my clients have beautiful homes that are just waiting to be filled with the humming and activity of a dinner party for friends or clients, typically most of my clients might choose to cater larger events but for smaller parties it is often much more intimate to have an interactive cooking experience in your home.
Since reviews of clients are the best source of accurate rating of a service, I thought I would post these on my website and blog so you can get an idea of what to expect in a private or group cooking class from The Sage Dish
Thai Cooking Class
"I took part in a Thai Cooking Class with Chef Rita Conroy-Martin, and had a really lovely and informative afternoon. We learned how to make four dishes and ate at the Chefs home where she had laid out a lovely table with a Thai theme. Rita was patient and gave lots of tips during the preparation and cooking, I felt I could really master the dishes at home at the end. Rita made the whole experience an enjoyable one, even though the class was supposed to last 2 1/2 hours, we over ran to 3 1/2 hours and Chef Rita did not mind one bit, her passion for food and teaching shines."

Cooking Class in Ann Arbor
"I bought this cooking class as a birthday gift for my wife. My intention wasn't to tell her that she needs cooking lessons because she is already quite good in the kitchen. I wanted this to be an enjoyable experience for both of us. The chef (Rita) contacted me about a week before the class via email. She wanted to know what kind of cuisine I was interested in learning and also needed a few other details. I told her what I wanted and she promptly replied with a proposal of a three course meal based on my input. I thought that she did a good job of selecting the proper dishes considering we only had 2.5 hours to prepare the food and eat. Chef Rita was well spoken, very polite and professional. We went to her home and used her kitchen for this class. Normally she uses local commercial kitchens but due to the date I picked for my class, there were none available. She had us do most of the hands-on work and gave good instructions and advise along the way. Our meals came out great and we had fun cooking it. I wanted the experience to be casual and fun and it turned out to be just that. Overall my wife and I were very pleased with the service that Chef Rita provided."
