Hi Dawn,

Just to say how much I enjoyed the course on Saturday. I loved it very much and think that the knowledge I learned from you will be most useful.

I found the course fun and did enjoy the interaction. So, a big thank you and especially in coming all that way from your home to Parkhurst. Really appreciated.

Kind regards and here’s looking forward to the next session at the end of this month.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for presenting a most enjoyable course of the Housekeeping and Cooking lessons.

Noelene has thoroughly enjoyed the friendly and informative way in which you have presented the course.

We has acquired confidence with her new found skills and as a result has become an excellent housekeeper. She has tried out many of the recipes you have given her and we were most pleasantly surprised to taste the many delicious dishes she presented to us.

We would certainly recommend the above course to homeowners who would like their housekeepers to rise above the standard of just housemaids.

This confirms that Mary Phalatse has been attending your advanced cooking classes and has been cooking at our home the different dishes she has learned in class. She has made chicken kiev, chicken lasagna and several lovely vegetable dishes.

We particularly enjoyed the chicken kiev and the candied sweet potatoes / apples. These dishes have been enjoyed by our whole family and we are very positively impressed.

We hope that Mark is enjoying these classes as we are very pleased with what she has learned and would be willing to invest further in her culinary skills (a course on pasta). We must also acknowledge that we appreciate the presentation of the food (i.e. the green beans in the squash) as we entertain regularly. We look forward to additional specialties that Mary will cook and to the commencement of your beginning cooking class so that Mary’s niece also benefits from your instruction.

Mrs. Donna Oosthuyse
