Jerry is a terrific chef! Her vegan burgers were delicious and so healthy! I've always felt overwhelmed by the idea of making veggie burgers, especially since they usually just fall apart. But Jerry's were crispy on the outside, soft and flavorful on the inside, and full of love. Thanks for a wonderful meal!

I have been to Jerry's before so I was very exited when I saw that she had signed up for my dinner. Thanks for the lovely wine and the great atmosphere you brought to the table, Jerry. It is all the time a great pleasure for me to meet and dine with you.

I had a great time trying Jerry's vegetarian burger. I even enjoyed being a steak guy. Jerry was an exceptional host and made my first time fun.

I truly learned a lot from the Komboucha class! Jerry was very informative and since she has been making it for awhile, she was able to answer each and every question we asked :) Crossing my fingers that my first batch will be a success!

I'm so glad that I was able to join Jerry's Kombucha class! I learned a lot from her about making Kombucha at home and it was really helpful to get the chance to try different kombucha flavors that she had for us. I now have a better idea of which home made kombucha flavors are my favorite. I really appreciated the "kombucha kit" format and that she gave us the starter "scoby" in order to begin making kombuch that VERY SAME DAY! Thank you for an informative and fun class Jerry!

Jerry is my girl! She's funny, warm, and a really interesting person to talk to. On top of all that, food is great! Looking forward to sharing many a meal in the future with her!

I’m so glad that Jerry hosted her Mac and "Cheese" Vegan Edition meal share again. Jerry’s a gracious host and her meal was … well, yummy! I never knew that vegan mac and cheese could be that tasty and it was great to enjoy a healthy meal that included bright red grape tomatoes and lemon asparagus. Oh, and she really won me over when she served the perfectly al dente rigatoni pasta (my favorite way to have pasta). Dessert was moist, chocolatey, not over sweetened … and I was surprised to hear that they were made with black beans! I had a blast chatting with Jerry and her guests … it was a fun evening filled with so much laughter that we all lost track of time at the end! Looking forward to meal sharing with Jerry again in future!

Jerry was a wonderful host and a fantastic chef! She made me feel welcome and comfortable as soon as I entered her home. The food was absolutely delicious, and we enjoyed a variety of healthy and tasty vegan dishes while sharing stories and laughing. I left with a full belly, a happy heart, and three new friends.

As usual, Jerry is a pleasure to meal share with! I think this is the third or fourth time that we've meal shared now … so glad to have had the opportunity to catch up and chat with her at Jessica's Spicy Monday Fish tacos & Coconut Rice meal share! Jerry is awesome and I'm looking forward to (once again) meal sharing with her!

It was great meeting Jerry at Rita's meal sharing. She is very easy going and friendly. Looking forward to seeing her at future meal sharings (and hopefully attending one of hers!).

Jerry is a delight to have as a meal sharing guest! I first met her at the another meal share and was really happy to get the opportunity to meet up with her again for my St Joseph’s dinner. I was thrilled that she and the rest of the guests were happy to learn how to play an Italian card game (Scopa) … it was a blast! And, a big thanks to Jerry for bringing her home made kombucha … it was **delicious**!!!! After I write this review, I’ll be clicking on the “request” button to request to learn how to make this healthy, fermented drink from her. … can’t wait!

Sharing a table with Jerry was an absolute delight. She's very engaging and I would love to enjoy more conversations with her. I look forward to seeing her at another mealshare soon.

I was glad that Jerry generously hosted another butternut squash mac and cheese meal. Her food is not only absolutely delicious but so healthy for you too. Not only that, she makes her own kombucha. Highly recommend!

Every part of the meal was delicious--even those protein packed brownies! And the company was delightful. Thank you Jerry!

This was something I did not expected. Wow, I never dreamed that a vegan mac and cheese can be so good. Jerry is a great host and we had so much fun telling stories all evening long. Thanks for the gift( sorry can not remember the english word) that was very nice.

This was my first Meal Sharing experience, and a wonderful intro to the concept. Jerry is lovely and her vegan meal was fantastic. Really creative and delicious. She is a gracious host and besides a yummy meal, I really enjoyed great conversation with the other guests.

So much warmth and energy from the minute I walked in. I felt right at home. This was my first vegan meal and it was absolutely incredible. Great flavors and bold spices, so rich in flavor and incredibly nourishing and satisfying. The guests were amazing and the stories shared about their world travels were so vivid and captivating I felt like I was living inside their stories out of touch with reality. It was such an adventure and a wonderful time.

Jerry is wonderful to have as a guest at your table. She's very laid-back and so knowledgeable about healthy eating. I cannot wait to try her vegetarian cooking. She is always welcome back at my table and I hope to see her in other future meals!

I had a great time getting to know Jerry at Krishna's Japanese brunch today! Such a friendly and positive person with a very interesting background. :) I was happy to learn about other cool events she has participated in and to also discover that she likes a lot of the same things I do. I'm convinced that her and I would have still met at another event somewhere in Chicago (even if we wouldn't have met via meal sharing). Looking forward to meal sharing with Jerry in the future!

The Butternut Squash was unbelievable! Everyone was amazed and showered Jerry with praise, plus everyone has seconds :) It was so delicious and we all felt good and full from healthy food. The food was great, but what I loved most was Jerry's apartment and casual vibe, I felt so at home and would recommend it for anyone.

Jerry was such a lovely guest to have! I had seen her speak before at Ideas Potluck, but it was awesome to have her over. Even though we were eating, she kept everyone hungry by talking about her butternut squash mac n cheese, so I'm so excited to try it!!! Not to mention the black bean brownies...intrigued.... :)
