I just wanted to thank you for a really enjoyable week learning the essentials of your craft. You put an enormous amount of effort into it and went far beyond the call of duty. However, being both a natural teacher and master baker, you seem to have found your niche in life. I don’t suppose any of us will ever bake a loaf of bread again without thinking of you. And that’s as close to immortality as most people can get. Anyway, many, many thanks for being so generous.

 Thank you for such a fabulous bread class.

 Yours was the best culinary course I have ever attended.

I really enjoyed your course. It was exactly what I was looking for.
I received hands-on instruction and was able to get a feel for
bread-making that I have not been able to acquire through books.

Thank you again for the amazing workshop!
