Dear Chef Silvana,
I want to thank you for the wonderful cooking camp. Nathan brought home five delicious dishes every day and learned different cooking techniques. He took pride in his creations and was excited about cooking. He has made several cakes after the camp. I’ve been learning the recipes with him every Sunday since then. So I’m indirectly learning from you too.Ammy Yuan
Silvana’s classes have been the absolute highlight of my daughter’s summer for the past 2 years. She has learned many tricks and techniques with baking, gotten completely comfortable in the kitchen and brings home the most amazing desserts for us to enjoy at home.Rebecca Wagoner
My daughter, now 8, has been cooking with Silvana since she was 6 and just adores her. Silvana has that gift that allows children to do so much and feel so capable. And the food she brings home is just incredible. It would not be out of place at some of the fanciest restaurants in town!Usha McFarling
Gabi likes that your recipes are ‘just right recipes’ – doable for kids but also something an adult would find interesting to makeLinda Redey
