What People Say about Paula

I would say the experience was completely collaborative, the ideas and recipes were original, creative and delicious. Paula lit up the stage when featured at the International Food and Wine show in Toronto.  It was a pleasure to work with chef Paula, she was professional and has a great talent to adapt to many business requests and bring her own flare to every recipe and presentation.

The family has really fell in love with Paula’s cooking classes. Didn’t jump on board at first but after first class – I was HOOKED! I’m now up to three classes a week – all different, gourmet, everyday, kids and teens. It’s been so much fun, I had seriously never had so much fun cooking and my family of 5 so excited to eat! I will continue to join each week – I love the tricks and tips and the why and how! Especially during these times it’s been important for a new social outlet – but be sure – I’ll be signing up even when new normal begins.

Dear Paula, yesterday’s gourmet cooking class was amazing. My whole family enjoyed making the dishes at the same time with you. Your classes are fun, relaxing and full of tips and great recipes. The Thai menu from yesterdays class was fantastic. Congratulations!

Paula’s virtual cooking classes have given us the opportunity to learn a new skill and to develop more confidence in preparing delicious meals together as a family.

Our 11 & 13 year olds have discovered a love for cooking through Paula’s teen online cooking classes. Simple and delicious recipes that are beyond their mom and dad’s kitchen skills. Definitely give one a try!

Paula was recommended to me by a friend and I have been using her weekly meal services for about 2 years now. Not only is she a create cook but she is a wonderful person. Her weekly meal plans cater to all dietary restrictions. It also helps that her portions and costs are amazing and affordable for the freshly cooked meals provided. Furthermore, Paula is also very accommodating with offering meals that may not be on the menu for that week. Additionally I have catered through Paula and likewise I’ve received positive and great feedback from family and friends. Many have gone on to place orders after tasting her food. My husband is always raving on how tasty her cooking is. My son always asks me why I am not able to cook as good as her. My personal favorite is her Chick Pea Burgers, I would highly recommend you…

Private cooking classes with Paula are great! She makes cooking so fun and entertaining, even for kids! My boys and myself have had such a great experience when doing her private lessons with our friends. Her recipes are delicious and easy to follow and the best part, dinner is ready after the class!! I highly recommend her classes and her catering services as well. Her food is amazing!

Paula did an amazing job! We were neither able to meet Paula, nor to talk to her on the phone, and still she absolutely nailed it. She came to the venue with her team, set everything up with barely any supervision necessary, and she served her delicious food. We had an incredibly hard time choosing from the many options she provided us beforehand, as they all sounded extremely tasty. Paula always replied to our mails within couple hours and she always was very understanding and helpful. I would definitely recommend her. She’ll make your event perfect!

“If you would like to enjoy authentic Mexican food, try Paula’s Guacamole or her amazing “taquitos”. Her food is really tasty and it really feels like you are eating homemade food. Congratulations Paula!”
