“Our private cooking class with Bowen was one of the best date nights we’ve ever had! We immediately felt right at home in Bowen’s kitchen. She really took the time to get to know us – what we were already familiar with as well as what we were excited to learn about and created a completely collaborative, unique yet simple experience that stretched us beyond our comfort zones and made us hungry for more!”

“We spent a lovely evening last night in a delightful cooking class at our house.  It felt like a perfect summer evening that we will all remember and savor for many years to come.  Bowen did an incredible job of including all eight of us in the entire process of creating a tapas dinner.  We chopped, filled, diced and sauteed while eating, drinking, laughing and talking and then, best of all, we got to sit down and eat the scrumptious feast we had all created. Bowen was so well prepared it flowed like syrup and made it easy to follow and understand.  She was engaging and informative without creating any feelings of pressure or formality. I can’t wait to do it again!”

“Last night I attended a cooking class taught by Bowen of Bowen Appétit. It was fun and we learned how to cook delicious tapas that I am excited to try again on my own.  The whole evening was enjoyable and Bowen was able to engage students of different ages and cooking abilities to make the class both entertaining and informative.  I never knew I could like white sangria so much, and can’t wait to make so many of the dishes again. Thank you for a completely enjoyable evening.”

“Jer and I loved our class with you and your husband. I have to say you really gave me the courage to be more adventuresome with my cooking.  I have been afraid of trying new things and being more creative, but you gave me the courage to just wing it.”

“I was blown away by the food and level of service at my engagement party. Bowen went above and beyond to make it a special occasion for my fiancé and I. The attention to detail with presentation was exceptional and was exactly the feel I wanted – classic, homey, comfortable, yet professional. I also ADORED the specialty syrups and coffee drink she made especially for the event. So delicious!”
