Have taken a number of classes and look forward to more . The recipes have become family favorites and the techniques have improved my cooking skills for sure. Carolyn is so organized and delightful to work with each class has been an absolute treat.   - Mary Ellen

Carolyn is a wonderful chef and teacher. Her cooking classes are great for people at any skill level. Everyone participates and has a good time. You take home the recipes prepared in class. Last night I even used a guacamole recipe I learned a few years ago. Yum!    – Lynn

3/13/17 – Culinary Skills Series

~This was my first time taking a cooking class at Appleton Farms and I will certainly return. I took the Cooking Methods class with Chef Carolyn Grieco. Even though I have been cooking for years, I learned many techniques that will enhance my cooking. Carolyn is very professional and engaging. She did all the prepping and clean-up in addition to providing us with a well-planned menu. Bravo!

~Carolyn is very knowledgeable, organized, approachable and fun! I’m confident any class she teaches will be incredible!

‘Sweet As Pie’ Cooking Workshop

I loved taking your pie class last Saturday, you really taught us so much. And the pie I made was excellent.  The crust was too good to be mine! So, I do know that I need to make another one before long. I’m so glad I went to your class. Thank you.  Diane


Canning Workshop, 2016

Hi Carolyn!

Just wanted to follow up with another thank you for your class! I have canned so much this fall- “putting up” dilly beans, pickled cauliflower, applesauce… even spiced cantaloupe! And so much more! Loving it! As I am writing I am making all sorts of jams for Holiday gifts. Thanks so much for teaching me this amazing skill!
All the best,

Crop -To-Kitchen Cooking Workshop, October 2016


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Did the squash extravaganza cooking class last night – a fantastic evening!! Carolyn is a great chef and instructor – she didn’t talk too much or above our own cooking abilities (or lack thereof). The food was beyond delicious and well balanced – highly recommend any cooking class Carolyn offers!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️     Paula
