If you’re wondering who I am and how I got here, it’s a looong story. But if you insist, you can get the short-ish version here.

Let’s just say I’ve been around the (cutting) block a few gazillion times. I love spending time with other foodies, cooking together, or teaching, and sharing what I’ve learned from my travels, studies, and tasty experiments. I hope you’ll join us!

Foodie Friends – Reviews

There’s nothing else
like this in our community.  This is all your and Al’s vision, Denise.
Thank you for bringing
this community feel to Longmont!”


“Thanks again for
another awesome class last night! I made my sourdough this morning and it turned out great. Thanks again, hope to
see you at cooking club and/or another class soon!”


“I’ve taken two cooking classes with Denise. Her culinary skills are diverse and creative, the recipes are easy to follow and
she encourages students to make them their own.  The classes are fun and peppered with her fascinating travel stories and cultural insights.
She’s a gem!”


“I love your classes, the informality of them! Because you are so nice, and do not possess an elite attitude around cooking… and you feel confident that you can achieve a great dish! I would not change a thing.”
