  1. Hello chef Paulette. I have a recipe from Relish Magazine for Regina Cookies. I want to make for Christmas. Can you tell me if the 2 Tablespoons of vanilla is correct, just want to make sure there isn’t a typo. I am anxious to try these and love that yours are so great looking by using the unhulled sesame. Thank you. Denise Muro, Greenfield, Ma

    • Hi Denise, So happy you’ll be trying the cookie! Yes, 2 tablespoons is correct (I know it seems like a lot more than the usual). The vanilla flavor comes through nicely in the cookie. Thank you! Let me know how they turn out.

  2. Rochelle McAlpin (I have participated on some of your informational touring of Nashville sites and lunch around the city) They were great. |

    Hello Chef Paulette, I would love to have you come to my home for a private cooking session with my family (total of 6 people) to teach us how to cook eggplant and perhaps something else vegetarian. My son is away at college, but will be home for Christmas. He recently attempted to cook his own Thanksgiving meal of eggplant by himself while away at school and had to throw everything in the trash. He ate Jack n the Box Thanksgiving. HELP. He will be home for the Christmas time period.

    • Hi Denise! Thanks for your note. My Winter schedule went out last week and everything is sold out now thru March. In March my spring schedule will come out via email announcement. Would you like me to add you to my email list? Thanks again!

  3. I am interested in cooking classes for my 12-year-old grandson. He has taken classes in FLA, but he now lives in Murfreesboro. Do your classes enroll students this young? Please add my name to your mailing list. Thank you. Billie Dunlap –

  5. Hey Paulette! We have a gift certificate that we have been aching to use. I thought I was on your email list but I haven’t gotten any news on any summer or fall classes. Would you mind sending me class information, please? Thanks very much. :) Cassie

    • Hi Cassie, You may not be on the mailing list. I’ll be sure to add your name. Summer and Fall classes are basically sold out. In December there will be a notice for winter classes. Thanks!
