I just have to share a note I received from a client today. Last weekend I taught a culinary class at her beautiful home for twelve lovely baby- shower guests.
"Chris, I can't thank you enough for making our shower event such a success. EVERYONE replied how much fun it was and as you know, the food was delicious and interesting."
Even after eighteen years of teaching culinary classes sometimes at the end of the day I still wonder how it went from their perspective. Years of being a member of Toastmasters International has actually made me more cautious with regard to my presentation skills. Cooking is one thing but presenting it to my best ability is another.
I have a basket on my cookbook case and in it I keep special messages like these. Sometimes my granddaughters ask my why I keep all those old note cards. I tell them "because it reminds me of all the nice people that have passed in and out of my life!'
