John and Liisa were wonderful teachers, and it felt like we were at our friends home for dinner. A unique dining experience!

What’s better than having a good time and eating excellent food? Not much. But with Cottage Cooking my partner and I got to participate fully in making our meal. John and Liisa and terrific guides for food preparation. What makes the experience so nice is that they are always positive and pleasant. They are also a sight to see when it comes to teamwork. They complement each other so well. While watching them I was saying to myself “Can’t wait to try the same teamwork with my partner when we cook together. All in all it was a great evening. I’d recommend it to anyone wanting to combine a fun evening with learning about how to make a special meal.

Just wanted to drop you few lines out of enthusiasm after this wonderful time in your nest where we also happen to have learned to cook new dishes and laughed. Quality time was key and at 20:35, a new friend stepped out from your home.

Thank you for hosting this event and for your help in purchasing this night as a gift for my parents. You were so fast and friendly. I wish I could drive down there and go too! Hopefully, the next time I come to Asheville, we’ll meet. I know my mom and dad had a great time!

What an incredible experience James Purcell Atkins, Jr. and I had last night! We had a blast with John and Liisa… such an amazing and warm couple. We learned so many new cooking techniques. And, the food was outstanding! Can’t wait to try everything at home!

What a great cooking experience!!!! John & Liisa were so much fun!!! We cooked, we massaged kale (lol), we laughed, we ate (soooooo much good food) and we had a GREAT time doing it all. If you have plans to visit Asheville you’ll definitely want to add Cottage Cooking to your itinerary! John & Liisa are the best and the food is de-frickin-licious (Liisa’s coined phrase.)

Cottage Cooking was the perfect date night for my husband and I. John and Liisa were fabulous hosts/cooking instructors! We learned how to cook 4 easy, yet delicious items and had such a great time doing it. Thanks for a wonderful birthday dinner!!
