“Chef Alli came to our Women in Ag Event and shared many of her electric pressure cooking tips and tricks. The crowd was very pleased with her engaging program and Chef Alli has a knack for making everyone feel at home and comfortable; she is charming, fun, and affectionately celebrates farm fresh food and its preparation. Her program helps the electric pressure cooker beginner feel more confident and less intimidated about its usage, empowering and encouraging families to prepare meals together.”

A delight to work with

“Chef Alli presented at the Great Plains Diabetes Live Well with Diabetes Event on November 4, 2017. She was a delight to work with from start to finish. Chef Alli provided information for the promotion of the event including recipes and quotes for our Facebook page well in advance of the event. We asked her to work with Sharon Penner, a dietitian, to add “diabetes content” to her cooking demonstration and the audience could not believe they had not worked together for years. The dishes she prepared were “spot on”, healthy, nutritious, and easy to prepare. The audience was engaged throughout her presentation. Would we have Chef Alli back? IN A MINUTE!”

My Kitchen Hero

“One of my joys in life is sharing food from my kitchen with family and friends. Your cooking classes have provided so much benefit to me! I began taking classes from you over four years ago, starting with stovetop cooking, adding cast iron and electric pressure cooking, as well. You taught me to troubleshoot my equipment, infuse flavor into my dishes, how to choose ingredients, and provided me with delicious recipes as a bonus. I love your cooking classes and have become a loyal and happy fan!”

I wish every woman, everywhere, could hear her speak

“The women in attendance of our retreat were hanging on Chef Alli’s every word. There were many laughs, a few tears shed from chopped onions, and most of all, hearts were touched. Yes, Chef Alli taught us how to prepare a delicious meal, but she also spoke wisdom, love and truth about marriage that hit us all right where we needed it. I wish every woman, everywhere, could hear her speak.”
