Dr. George and Rhonda Malkmus,

What Students Say About Our Classes.
We have hundreds of testimonials from satisfied students, and in our teaching career, we receive excellent evaluations with many saying that they got much more than they expected and was an excellent value compared to other courses available. We will share a few of these with you.

“Can't tell you how much your class has given me the confidence and insight needed to do well with the raw food lifestyle.  I did not use to do much of anything in the kitchen - now my wife can't believe the transformation.  I'm in there preparing the recipes and experimenting.  She has now joined in and is actually doing most of the work.  The cooking class is crucial to staying with the
program. “

I would encourage everyone to make it to the Graff's classes. They are excellent teachers and the most wonderful and sincere people - not to mention excellent chefs!! AND if you are looking for a fun filled class - I highly recommend checking them out. I promise you won't regret it. They have shaped and changed my life so greatly and I will be forever grateful because, honestly my raw food prep before taking their class was known to make people cry it was so bad. Now people beg for it thanks to my excellent teachers.
