"You were certainly one of my favorite experiences in LA. I hope the east coast brings you all the joy and happiness that you have shared through your classes and meals" - Malinda
"It was a pleasure learning from you. Thank you for imparting your culinary wisdom, kitchen magic and patience. Best of luck on your new adventure!" - Pat
"I am sorry to see you go. I will always remember taking my first cooking class with my son at Surfas with you. You were just great with a 24 year old who was sure he wouldn't have a great time. BUT he sure did! He has made several of your Julie & Julia recipes. You gave him that skill. His girlfriend has been impressed with his cooking. My most recent class with you was the Tapas class with my foodie buddy Terri. It was her first class with you and she really enjoyed herself. We will miss your great teaching skills and your wonderful recipes with all the tips." - Sharon
"Thanks so much for making my cooking instruction so much fun. I've learned a great deal from you and have great admiration for your teaching abilities as well as your knowledge and experience in the kitchen. It's been a pleasure learning from you and my friends and family join me in thanking you for the wonderful meals we've enjoyed thanks to my time with you." - Robert
"You and your classes will be missed by the both of us. We wish you well in your move and future endeavors. Having experienced first hand your culinary knowledge and your caliber of teaching, you will always be successful.
We would be very interested in seeing the culinary videos, let us know when they are ready." - Michael and Cheryl
"Since sampling a few of your classes, I have found that I really enjoy the pace and art of cooking, and have re-created many of your Indian dishes. (Thank you 1,000,000X)
Cooking delicious food and being encouraged by your techniques (which I have taken to practicing) I am taking that next step forward & attending an open call for MasterChef – with visions of going even farther thanks to you.
I know you will find an enthusiastic group of novice and experienced chefs in your new area. Keep up the wonderful work, you inspire us all." - Renette Christensen
"I love your teaching style and your relaxed approach to cooking. I learned so much from you, and now find cooking to be a complete pleasure. It's a fun challenge to look a what we have in the kitchen on any given evening and think "what would Amanda make with these ingredients?", and then throw something together. And I just hosted my book club and cooked the entire vegetarian meal from your recipes. It was such a hit the ladies all wanted to find out how to get copies of your book, so I gave them your website so they could get copies of their own! " - Diane
