Hello and Welcome
to the Connecting Kitchen!

Here’s my story that inspired the Connecting Kitchen.

For years I’d been trying to find a way to connect with my oldest son. Nothing worked. We could not spend 5 minutes in a room together (or on the phone) without arguing or shouting until… we started cooking together. I paid him at first because he needed the money, and he begrudgingly agreed. But we quickly realized it was fun. Too busy chopping, stirring, or mixing to be fighting, anyway.  Continued

What Clients are Saying

“I was inspired by the Connecting Kitchen to cook with my girlfriend. Cooking in a relationship is a great low stress activity in an environment where you’ll always end up growing closer together. You drop omelettes and burn cookies sometimes, but in the end you laugh about the mistakes you make and get to enjoy both the meal and the time you spent together.” – Wil DeCramer
