Chef Amanda teaches private and team building cooking classes in the North Carolina area.



"As Chef of 1st Cut Cuisine, Cook at Wolfgang Puck Catering in Hollywood, and Co-instructor at Magical Kitchen where we have cooked together, I highly recommend Chef Cushman. She handles students remarkably well and has a natural ability with foods. Her work ethic, recipe development and chef abilities are outstanding. It is a pleasure to work with Amanda."
Chef Instructor Rick Massa

"I have known Amanda as a friend and worked with her in a professional capacity for more than 20 years. She is a seasoned professional. Amanda is attentive to detail and brings a refreshing creativity to the kitchen/ students as a Chef Instructor."
Sydell Bryant, Culinary Director – The Bridge, NYC

“I received this book as a gift and as an amateur cook I'm always looking for new ways to excite my palate.  I love these recipes! They're straightforward and delicious and I found the text very moving ; we should all be so lucky to have had parents that actually cooked. Amanda’s book is a great addition to any kitchen”
–Jenny Jay - KCRW article“
