Ursula's Cooking School is fun and the recipes are always pretty simple. It is more about entertainment than technique but you do come away with some good recipes. Not for those looking for gourmet training but rather for those looking to make "semi-homemade" look like "very homemade."

Give someone cooking classes as a gift and you'll be fed for life! But with Ursula's recipes you'll love all the food you get and have to watch the waste line cause it's so good. She's a hoot and I'm glad she's back to teaching! What would we do if she ever stopped for good?!?

I have attended Ursula's cooking school for over 8 years and have learned a lot of fun tips and great recipes. Her recipes are usually easy to follow and you have the opportunity to sample everything. Lots of fun to go as a group! She is entertaining and lets you know "you are the boss of the kitchen"

Although it's been a few years since I've been to her classes, I found her to be humorous and delightful. She gives lots of useful info and short cuts. Everything is delicious, but not extravagant or upscale. If you want a fun low-key evening and you like food - go! This is not a "big-league" cooking school. Great for groups.

Ursula's down to earth approach cooking makes it easy even for someone like me to learn! She is very knowledgable and her love for cooking is obvious and contagious.

Ursula's class is fun. You learn how to make all different types of foods and you get to taste them right there in the class. Ursula is entertaining and I would recommend this class to anyone interested in a cooking class.
