Customer Testimonials

fun & patient teacher

My daughter and I attended one of Johnna’s cooking classes to try and learn more about vegetarian cooking.  The class was excellent, Johnna has a way of making you feel that cooking is fun.  We made 3 dishes, roasted vegetable enchiladas with green chili sauce, Arroz, and Agua Fresca de Fruta. It was all delicious and my daughter and I make the dishes at home for the whole family.  We are not vegan yet but if I could cook like Johnna I probably would be.  She is very patient.
