“Thank you so much for all of the enthusiasm, time and dedication you put toward making the “Eating Right” course for Cooking Matters at Dorchester House a major success! You were always incredibly prepared, eager to teach, and more than willing to listen to the interests and desires of our participants.”

“What a lovely experience. Debra is a very gracious host and a people person. Without much effort she guides you through even complicated kitchen procedures no matter what your degree of expertise. She listens to your comments and insures your understanding of the task at hand. All the food, preparation and cooking instructions are well documented for you to take with you. Ask lots of questions and your evening will be a real learning treat. ”

“Debra’s sushi class has long established itself as a popular fixture during MIT’s Independent Activities Period. Debra’s intuitive way of teaching sushi preparation, while using ingredients and utensils readily available outside Japan, combine to make the class a big success with students and non-student participants alike.

Debra also livens up her classes with anecdotes and stories drawn from her experiences in Japan, not only adding to the enjoyment of the class, but also putting Japan’s culinary traditions in context. After the sushi is finished, participants can then enjoy the results on beautiful Japanese crockery imported by Debra from Japan over the years, while also learning about traditional Japanese table settings. A culinary and visual feast, heartily recommended.”

“We were overwhelmed by the wonderful culinary experience you provided us. My husband is still talking about the sushi which he feels was the best he ever had. And I’m getting calls from numerous guests raving about the dinner. It was wonderful- down to every last detail. I’d love to do a repeat performance next year.”
Thanks for everything
