Lil Chefs

Client Testimonial

"Jackson really enjoyed the fall session of Thyme to Dine! He learned a lot, enjoys experimenting in the kitchen at home, had a lot of fun during cooking classes AND he loved your approach...very important for him!!! He is interested in enrolling in another session...perhaps next fall. This is a fabulous idea for any child...it teaches them important life skills. Thanx for being a shining, innovative star!!! I am sharing this for good reason...fabulous opportunity!" Tina
