SWEET BASIL COOKING INSTRUCTORS – SCOTTSDALE
To quote a teaching chef we knew many years ago: “You need eyes in the back – and on the sides – of your head.” And those eyes have to react quickly to a number of different hands doing a number of different tasks.
We’re proud that our chef instructors are so good at what they do – and that each one enjoys sharing their skills with those who attend our classes. Each one is an integral part of what makes Sweet Basil Cooking School a success.

Linda’s most memorable cooking experience: “While catering a party I was using a large amount of brandy for a flambé that created a pan fire that reached the ceiling. I kept shaking the pan until the alcohol cooked out.”
