About the teacher

Jackie Apple

As a youngster, JACKIE APPLE loved hanging out in the family kitchen, sitting on the counter watching her mother prepare classic Argentine food. Throughout her youth, Jackie traveled often to Europe and South America. Some of her most vivid memories are of the flavorful foods created by her relatives and host family: cherry clafouti in Vichy, France; pasta alla norcina in Perugia, Italy; beef empanadas in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In college and graduate school, Jackie cooked whenever possible. Friends always jumped when she offered to make a meal, and she even met her husband that way! Eventually, cooking on nights and weekends was not enough - Jackie enrolled at the Tante Marie Cooking School in San Francisco. There, despite stressing about every success and failure, Jackie had the time of her life. She knew then that the kitchen was THE place for her.
Jackie has been teaching cooking for more than 15 years, taking great pleasure in seeing students learn something new that they will share with others. Like many of her students, Jackie has a family to feed and a busy schedule. She understands the importance of creating recipes that can be made quickly and efficiently.
The most important message Jackie has for her students is “Just Cook!” You will be amazed at the dishes you can create for your family and friends.
