What Our Customers Say

Thank you so much for this follow up and for the most fun day I have had in ages. I am excited to try all of these wonderful things and look forward to another time with you in the near future. Spalding loved the shrimp and mango sauce! I knew that would be his favorite and so therefore didn't want to eat any ahead of time! Ida

Dear Chef Carlin and Wonderful Assistant,
I wanted to thank you both for hosting your cooking program for us at Fairview Public Library this summer. We appreciate the time and energy you devote to making these programs enjoyable and educational for our young adult patrons by combining cooking and life skills. I particularly appreciated your ability to pick out teens who were isolated or in need of attention. I observed one young man who arrived very sullen and spent time texting on his phone but was drawn in to help cut kiwis. An older college student seemed to feel a bit out of place until being engaged in conversation about her college. She has become a regular patron at our library since. Also the food was delicious! I hope to be able to schedule return visits to our library in the future. Thank you again for making our Build a Better World Program a success!
