I have taken Lori’s online cooking class and it has changed how I feel about cooking. Before the class, I had no interest in cooking. I actually dreaded it! I now will try different recipes because Lori’s class has given me tools to make adjustments to the recipe if needed. It was also a great way to be introduced to different foods and the different ways to use them. After taking her online course, I have become more confident in my abilities and enjoy cooking more.
Menasha Senior Center
We at the Menasha Senior Center had so much fun with Lori demonstrating seasonal ideas for squash. She is engaging and connected to her audience. She would be great to book for a business event too.
Chef Lori recently helped my Senior Girl Scout Troop with a badge on local foods. I've never met anyone with as much passion for local foods, local farmers, and smartly-sourced ingredients! My girls were captivated by Chef Lori and what she had to teach them. She is engaging to all ages. Chef Lori was able to talk to us about in-season foods, where to find them, and how to use them in a variety of ways. My Girl Scouts left excited about foods they have never tried, and are ready to hit the farmer's market to seek them out.
I also had the opportunity to work with Chef Lori on food plans. She was able to provide ideas and structure to my week to reduce my stress around feeding a busy family of four. She has ideas to fit every lifestyle and food requirement that made for quick, easy, and tasty meals that can cross breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
I highly recommend Chef Lori and believe you will learn as much as we did

Chef Lori brings a great mix of technical skills, professional kitchen experience and a passion for exploring new foods. Lori provides interactive sessions and is very responsive to questions posed, often times following up to be sure things went well. Lori addressed my questions regarding food preparation, storage and retention to ensure our safety was never compromised. I would highly recommend Chef Lori to anyone who is looking to enhance their life experience around food.
I can’t say enough about Chef Lori Fernandez. My family and I spent a day grocery shopping, meal planning and cooking. This is tough with a busy family with working parents. We learned so much about what ingredients to have in the house, how to create a two-week meal plan and even how to cut vegetables. While these tasks may seem simple, they are not to a family like mine with a surgeon mom, multi-sport athletes and dad who spends his day carting the kids around. My kids had a great day, learned a ton, and loved the meals. I highly recommend a day with Lori.
