"I happen to believe that you should learn to feed yourself and maybe a few others. ... Instead of shutting down home ec. we should have just expanded it and made everybody take it."

My husband, Hank, took your class and I have really enjoyed all the meals he has prepared. I don't think I have cooked a meal since the course started. I know he enjoyed the classes. And I thank you for turning my husband into a great cook. We really have fun and enjoy our meals.
