Yesterday was a pretty big day for me. My pie class was chosen Seattle Weekly’s Best Cooking Class of 2010! What a huge honor! I’m happy and humbled and feel I’ve found a little nitch that means something to others.
Although it takes many long hours to run and manage a business single-handedly, I’m having a heck of a lot of fun doing what I love and that more than makes up for the many late nights and early mornings that I find are the norm.
Quite simply put, I love to teach! Young and old, beginner or master, to see the spark of recognition when something clicks and the smiles of delight when a student achieves what they had no idea they could do is the “payment” that is priceless.
After I’ve tidied up the last crumbs off the counter and swept the floor clean, I leave the kitchen re-energized, smiling and satisfied that teaching is one of the “Best Of” professions in the world.
