My son and I took the water kefir class and had a blast. Barbara is a great teacher and had an amazing variety of flavor combinations for us to create and taste. Our kefir grains have tripled already and we now have an endless supply of fresh kefir at home. We highly recommend taking any of Barbara's classes if you hope to expand your knowledge on how to make great tasting food that will nourish your body. Tracey and Tanner

I have known Barbara for about five years now both personally and professionally, Barbara is a Master at her craft. Her organization skills and attention to detail are like to other. Her fun loving spirit and communication style make her so easy and enjoyable to be around.
Over the years I have learned much from Barbara and have a great respect her creativity and style.

Just attended Barbara's water kefir workshop yesterday and it was fun, informative, and very clear. Brought my 1st and 2nd fermentation batches home and today I (properly) burped the 2nd fermentation batch, added some orange and my kids and I all drank it. Feels good to drink something delicious and so healthy for you! Thanks, Barbara for supporting and guiding us through the process. Feels like I can totally handle making this at home for years to come!
