Cooking Classes
PREP,
Both classes I took this weekend were
wonderful. The meal tonight was the
best that I can remember having in a
very long time. The chef & staff were
all so friendly and professional. It's
obvious that you all love your work.
On a side note,  I left my recipes at
the shop. Can you email me tonight's
class?  (Steak & chocolate )
Thank you!
Becky

Dear PREP,
I greatly enjoyed Chef Rahm's Red
Meat Class and placed a review on
Yelp.  Bought a Shun knife and am
working my way through a 10-pound
bag of potatoes.  Joy
Our response to Joy -  Thanks so
much Joy, glad to hear.  We love to
see and hear people build small
business up on Yelp rather than tear
them down.  Small businesses and
customers like you help make
America great!

Hi Chef Karla,
My son and I were a part of the Slow
Cooking class on the 21st. The boy
will not shut up about your uber
delicious polenta dessert.  He is very
excited to attempt to recreate some
of the tasty goodness from the class.  
Thank you again for all you taught
us.  Jen

Hello Chef Karla,
Let me start by saying that I haven't

Dear PREP,
I had the pleasure of studying with
Chef Elizabeth Whitt during your
Learn To Cook Series and your PRO
CHEF I Series.  Not only was I
introduced to new foods and
techniques, but my class time has
revolutionized how I cook at home.  
Our family is reaping the benefits of
greater nutrition and a more confident
chef in the kitchen.  I wanted to let
you know that Chef Whitt is fantastic.  
She is mindful of everyone's learning
styles and genuinely wants everyone
to succeed.  She has had a
tremendous impact for me
personally.  Thank you for providing
such a competent and thoughtful
teacher.  Michelle

Attended two classes with Chef Martin
recently - the Cheese Making class
(FUN and went home with some great
cheeses). And this past Friday
enjoyed the Tamale class. OMG best
tamales I've ever eaten. It took me
an hour and 15 minutes to get to Prep
from Santa Ana (torture!) however,
the class was amazing - we made
over 200 tamales in 3 hours. It was
SO worth the drive. And, again, we
took home a plate full of the most
delicious tamales ever. The chocolate
tamales were a surprise, and I loved
the carmel sauce over them. Chef
Martin makes the class fun and gets
us all involved. THANKS Prep & Chef!

Last night's cooking class -- Summer
Superfoods with Dr. Allen Arnette --
was simply fantastic! I've never taken
a cooking class but always wanted to
try one. Allen made it fun &
interesting. And the food was
delicious! I hope I can take his 3-wk
Cleanse classes in the fall.

Hi… I wanted to take a moment to
that I had last night at Prep Essentials
with Chef Z.  My three girlfriends and
I traveled in the pouring rain from the
Aliso Viejo/Ladera Ranch area in
South County.  It took us over an
hour to get there  in the rain and
traffic, but every moment was WORTH
IT!!!  Our class was fun, our chef
instructor was fun and our food
recipes were amazing!   
My girlfriends and I used one of our 2
Groupon certificates and we are all
looking forward to using the next
certificate for the next class!!!  
I hope you do more vegetarian or
Vegan based classes.  I easily have
more vegetarian and even meat
eating friends that would love to take
a class.  Who could possibly turn
down an opportunity to drink wine in a
class and eat great food after learning
very handy cooking techniques????
Thanks for having the class and I will
be on the lookout for more!

Fantastic folks at PREP -
Each of the four classes I've taken at
PREP so far has been excellent, and I
love the variety that you offer.  Your
Groupon offer was by far the best
deal I've seen on Groupon ever as it
helped me recruit some friends who I
think are now hooked like I am.  But
you had me before that offer and I'll
continue to take classes even though
I've used both Groupons.  Thank you
very much for providing these classes
and for the variety of great chef
instructors you find.  I love your
store!  Cheers,   Lisa
*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *
Dear PREP,  Thank you for the
recipes!  I had a great time with the

try these recipes at home!  Mary

Thank you Chef Fama for a great

Chef Karla
My husband and I took your steak
class a week ago Saturday. We sat at
the table closest to the kitchen with
another couple and a gal and her
mother.

Anyway, we truly enjoyed your class
and your personality. It all went so
well together - much like the meal.

We will be taking your Peruvian
cooking class next month and can
hardly wait. One of my dearest
friends married a Peruvian man and
they just recently returned from 1 1/2
years of living there (for work). Her
husband is from Chiclayo (not sure if
I spelled that correctly) and they got
us in to Peruvian cuisine. Can't wait to
cook for them after this class!

Thanks so much Karla. Looking
forward to enjoying more culinary
adventures with you.  Molly

Chef Karla,
Good morning.  Please find a picture
of my chocolate soufflé I created
yesterday attached herein.

It was a lot of fun making them and
friends and family who tried them said
they were amazing.
I also wanted to show you that I
made Coconut Macaroons drizzled in
homemade chocolate ganache.
One word.....Yummy :)

Thank you again for your direction
and professionalism.  I am so glad
that you are my Chef instructor.
Daniel
