WORKSHOPS

You can rely on me for interactive, fun events. I enjoy teaching and know how to keep groups engaged. Everyone loves talking about food!

Length: 1-2 hours, customized to your needs. More time means more hands-on activities, examples, and time for discussion. Participant evaluations often request longer sessions, so if you can fit it in your schedule, I recommend 2 hours.

Speaking fee: $250 for up to 2 hours, plus travel time and expenses for talks outside of Calgary.
