"Chef Janice Thomas has over 20 years experience in the food industry. In addition to owning her own catering company for 14 years, Janice has been teaching cooking classes for many years in Arizona, Oregon and Wisconsin. Studies at the renowned Cordon Bleu in Paris and with well-respected chefs in France, Italy and China have enhanced Janice's repertoire. Extensive travel in Mexico afforded the opportunity to cook with a variety of local chefs, where she developed a love for the distinctive southwest flavors. Thus was born Janice's specialty in food fusions.
Janice states, "Combining the flavors of many cultures results in an explosion of taste delights."
"We are committed to excellence in service and instruction. Learn by experience in classes structured as hands-on workshops. Have fun being a part of a great culinary adventure!"
