My friend Julie and I got the opportunity to take a cooking class with Jodi and it was wonderful. It was hands on and she walked us through selecting a menu of recipes that were not overwhelming or difficult to make. She was loads of fun and opened up her home and heart to us wacky two ladies from Detroit!... More

Jodi and her team are amazing! First, I showed up expecting to have to help and she insisted I enjoy myself and let her team handle all the details.
