Testimonials

Below are testimonials/feedback from my clients after attending my cooking parties for kids, cooking demonstrations, hands-on cooking sessions or private cooking lessons.

It is such an honour to see children, who are suffering from life-threatening illnesses, enjoy the moments that generous people such as yourselves create for them. Words cannot express how grateful we are for your kindness to our dream child and the effort you went to, to make her dream a reality. Thank you for creating a special experience for Khanyi by teaching her how to bake – it was beyond our wildest expectations and so much more than we could have asked for! This is a memory that will last for a very long time with her and it is clear that you have inspired hope in this girl’s life! On behalf of our branch, the dream child and her family, please accept our heartfelt thanks.  Reach For A Dream JHB 

Embarking on a cooking course was something I always wanted to do, but something that I was very afraid of. Also, I didn’t quite know where to start. Most classes out there were far, were offered at a late hour and were mostly demonstrations. I eventually came across Jeanri’s website and what followed was months of fun, laughter, excitement and learning how to cook starting with the very basics to things I believed I could never make. I say this because Jeanri comes into your home and kitchen making you feel so comfortable from the start, you need not worry if you cannot do the simplest of tasks. All this happens in such an organized way, from the buying of the ingredients to getting your kitchen properly equipped, to pairing recipes for meals, that finally I have been left with the courage to entertain from my kitchen which is a place I now know so well and which I now love being in.  Thank you Jeanri for a wonderful experience, I still miss my cooking day!  Anonymous, JHB

Thanks very much – the party was excellent!! People were still speaking about it this week …
Rosanna, Parkmore

Thanks again for a wonderful party.  I could not have made a better choice.  The girls loved the baking and decorating.  Maxi, Silver Lakes, Pretoria

“Annette was very impressed with her party and it was the “talk of the town” Monday at school. Annette’s teacher said all the girls spoke about Annette’s party in their news session. The mom’s were also impressed with your recipes, professional approach and the fact that you could handle and entertain the group of girls. Well done!  Elsje, Morningside

“I found Cooking Up A Storm via her website, and decided to take the risk. I am really glad I did! Jeanri is extremely professional, comes fully prepared for every lesson and puts every effort into making sure that your domestic worker learns to cook. She even spent time with mine, teaching her maths so that she could halve recipes, double up on portions etc… Jeanri goes shopping on your behalf and makes sure that you have everything you need for a lesson, even down to the equipment needed in the kitchen (measuring cups, measuring spoons, proper scale etc…), so that there is no delay in lesson time. Everything she taught Fredah to cook has been delicious and we have used her recipes over and over. My domestic worker has gained a lot of confidence in the kitchen. Jeanri ensures that your domestic is able to write up a shopping list, keep to excellent hygiene standards in the kitchen, cook, bake, and tidy up properly afterwards. She also shows her how to store food correctly and minimize wastage. Brilliant!  Definitely money well spent, I can only highly recommend her”  Kelly, Parkview

“Thank you so much for last night, Adrian and I had the most wonderful evening! He hasn’t stopped talking about it, and the food was delicious! I have already started recommending you to everyone I know!” –  Shannon, Greenside

“Thank you very much for the terrific demonstration you gave today. It is so good to have some new ideas at last. Thanks again for an enjoyable day. Looking forward to your next demonstration” June, Jhb South

“Jeanri I owe you my life. I have so much confidence now and can try any recipe and it comes out good” Chipo, Sandton

“Thanks again.  It is going very well with Gugu’s cooking. She has even started to experiment and can cook a wide variety of dishes.  You are a great teacher!  Ilze, Linden

“Thank you very much for everything.  You gave us incredibly professional services and I will definitely recommend you to everyone I know!” Carina, Parkhurst

“A big THANK YOU – our team thoroughly enjoyed the Thai Hands-on course! Michelle, Randburg
