About Me – Denise Milligan

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

I started cooking with my Mom and Granny when I was a whopping 2 years old. I never really had an interest in cooking professionally, but no matter where I was or what I was doing, I found that cooking was the one thing I always came back to – no matter what.

And then something REALLY unexpected happened.

Through a serendipitous series of events, I found myself in Spain. I discovered new foods, new friends, and a culture that thinks the sun rises and sets by meal times. (Doesn’t it?) My honey, Al, and I have now counted more than 20 years of living – and learning – part-time in Spain. And that adventure has opened the door to travels all over the world. The biggest lesson of all? That cooking and/or eating together is the key to the good life.

So THAT’S where Foodie Friends Co. came from.

From bread baker to cheese maker, to Spanish food specialist and beyond, I LOVE exploring new foods and cooking methods, finding ways to simplify – and sharing those things with YOU. Because the only thing better than cooking together, is eating together.

If you’re local to the Longmont area, I hope you’ll join us live. And I’m working on ways for us to connect online if you’re in another state — or even another country! Sign up below and I’ll keep you posted.

About Foodie Friends Co.

It’s really very simple.

We’re all about finding ways to fit simple, delicious cooking into busy schedules – so that we can spend more time enjoying great times together. We organize and host cooking classes that range from casual BYOB Happy Hours to more formal (but always very fun and casual) classes. We’re always on the lookout for interesting food-focused ways to spend time with other foodies, or just share Mediterranean-focused, simple, healthy, and delicious recipes. 

P.S. We’re working on a members area for when you just need the perfect recipe, some tips, or can’t make it to a live gathering. Sign up below to find out when that’s ready.
