You can read more of my customer testimonials on Google, Facebook and Instagram. Here are some of the lovely things people have said about my cooking classes in Cheshire and California…

A wonderfully indulgent experience. Gemma was fantastic at sharing her trips and tricks with us in a way that will stick and create better daily meals for our family. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!’ – Kaylynn, Los Gatos, California

‘She is brilliant, her recipes are delicious and her teaching style is informative and fun. I truly enjoy cooking and do quite a bit of it and have had guests in class who are novice cooks. We all come away with recipes that are easy to replicate (and make your own), using healthy, readily-available ingredients, that taste good and can be made mid-week on a busy night or dressed-up and served to company. I can’t recommend Gemma and You Say Tomato highly enough.’ – Christina, Gilroy, California

“Her cooking classes are the perfect combination of learning something new and incredibly useful with a great night out with friends. I have left every class with not only a whole new set of recipes, tips and skills, but also a ton of inspiration to not be afraid to get out of our cooking ruts at home. She understands the demands of busy families and has helped us find a lovely balance of great food with efficient preparation. I also love the approach she’s taught us to organizing our kitchen and pantries. My time with her has helped breathe new life, energy, and fun into a homecooked meal.” – Heather, Los Gatos, California.

I organised a class with Gemma and 10 girlfriends and the night was a big hit! Gemma is incredibly easy to work with, fun and caters to the groups needs. The class itself is so much fun with yummy food and loads of tips and tricks. Can’t wait for the next class! – Katie, Alderley edge, Cheshire.

“I first came to one of Gemma’s classes after I’d heard about her from friends. Then I kept coming back! Cooking for my family while balancing work and the rest of life can be a challenge but I know her recipes will work, that they’ll taste great and won’t take too long to make. She has certainly gotten us out of our dinner ruts, and really changed the way we meal plan for the week. An added bonus is that we aren’t wasting food like we were before- everything gets eaten or is properly stored away for another meal in the future. I also have my kitchen impressively organized with all her helpful tips to reduce clutter and keep things to a minimum.’’ – Jackie, Monte Sereno, California.

“Gemma was a fabulous friendly host for our private cooking class! My mother and I leaned so many new tips and enjoyed the food after our class with our family! I would highly recommend booking Gemma, I know we will be booking again in the near future!” – Kayla, Wilmslow, Cheshire.

“Her demonstrations are informative, entertaining, and after sampling large portions of each dish, extremely satisfying! She teaches you from the comfort of your own home how to fearlessly navigate the kitchen, confidently substitute ingredients when needed, effortlessly prepare whole, unprocessed (and organic when possible) food for your whole family all while putting her charming British accent and sayings on display. Because I love her classes so much I’ve partnered with her to teach my customers how to meal plan, cook with confidence and keep to their nutrition goals!” – Macey, owner The Dailey Method (fitness Barre studio), Los Gatos, California.

“Simply amazing!! Gemma is fantastic and the classes are just fab. I learned so much at the same time as catching up with friends and eating gorgeous food, perfect way to spend an evening! Thank you so much Gemma, will be booking another one soon.” Rachel, Wilmslow, Cheshire.

“Gemma’s classes are so much fun! The food is always delicious and healthy. You leave knowing you can turn out a beautiful meal without an overwhelming amount of effort. The menus are so approachable and achievable by any level of cook. Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced, you’ll feel comfortable in Gemma’s kitchen and you’ll always learn something new.” – Annette, Los Gatos, California.

“Gemma is an artist in how she puts lovely nuance into the dishes she creates and also in how she shares them with her classes during a very fun class. Our Italian Feast was a wonderful girls night out, and I’d also highly recommend as a gift or a corporate team builder. Thanks so much!” – Suzy, Los Gatos, California.

“The best cooking class experience I’ve had. You Say Tomato really makes cooking delicious, high quality food easy to understand and replicate once you’re back home.” – Robyn, Palo Alto, California.

“Gemma is wonderful! She is warm, funny, articulate and passionate about cooking. Her classes are a valuable use of time that are fun, and of course, delicious. I have attended 3 classes and have learned so many fantastic tips that I have been able to incorporate into my own cooking.” – Melissa, San Jose, California.

“After taking private lessons with Gemma for a few months, I am miles ahead of where I was! Gemma is a terrific instructor; she has lots of great ideas for meals that are easy to make, provides detailed grocery lists and instructions, and is very patient about teaching even the most basic skills.” – Jeanette, Monte Sereno, California.

“Such a culinary and sensory feast, all the tastes, smells, advice on shopping and tools and the best ingredients. I don’t know how you could teach so much in one evening, while cooking, and sharing laughter and fun with us! And everything was too delicious to put in words!” – Ingor, Norway and Morgan Hill, California.
