Liz Turner learned to cook in a big, old-fashioned kitchen with mother, grandmother and 13 great aunts. She cooked her first complete Thanksgiving dinner at age 11, with Mom coaching from bed, as she recovered from surgery. She did most of the family meals throughout the years, which provided her with a basic understanding of the kitchen and cooking.
A passion for Liz has always been entertaining. She enjoys all of it, from the planning, food preparation and presentation to the table decor and setting. Through the early years of married life, she channeled this passion into trying to teach herself fancy complicated dishes -- some more successful than others. Her husband surprised and encouraged her with the life-changing experience of a 40-hour cooking class with Julia Child!
Liz's personal and professional life offered her the opportunity to travel and live internationally. She expanded her culinary knowledge by taking classes and studying the local cuisines. Upon relocating full-time to the White Mountains, when her husband retired, she received her Cooking School Instructor Certification, remodeled her kitchen and in 2005, opened the door to the Blue Apron Cooking School.
I haven't had so much fun cooking, ever! I learned so much from you and the other ladies, measuring flour, holding the knife, the beauty of the food processor and the inevitability of something not going as planned, getting through it and moving on to a delicious meal. The synergy developed during the class is wonderful and a credit to you. Thank you again and I look forward to next semester.
- Fondly, Bon Appetit! Carolyn
