“Wow, just opened the fermented veggies that we made with Ilah Jarvis and they kick some serious ass! Must get more starter and make more!!” -Janine Anderson

“Ilah is friendly and knowledgeable .  Her relaxed, mellow attitude towards measurements and instruction made me feel comfortable about trying the recipes on my own.  My first batch that I created in my kitchen turned out beautifully and it was great fun to do.”-Annie Kenny

“I liked that I could ask questions that were not necessarily addressed in the books. I also liked the peaceful, creative setting.”-Rebecca Anaya

Want answers to your burning knit, crochet, watercolor or cooking questions? Schedule a private class with Ilah. We can meet in my Berkeley office or a location of your choice. 1 hour = $40. ilah@eatbetterfeelbetter.com
