You will take home:

- Tips for planning and shopping for weeknight meals
- Helpful kitchen and knife skills knowledge

Here’s what people say about Smart in the Kitchen classes:
Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home and for the class last week with Zillow. It was so fun and special and we had a really good time! I even caught myself using one of your knife skills last night while chopping veggies – holding the back of the blade for a better grip and control. Thanks! — Samantha Snow
Marcia, thank you so much for a wonderful class yesterday! Your food is absolutely delicious, but it is the approachable manner and ease in which you present the task of cooking that I am in awe of! Thank you for the inspiration of both food and spirit!!
