Who is Chef Eva
Chef Eva was born and raised in Belize, a small country on the Caribbean coast of Central America. She is a graduate of Loyola University and The Houston Art Institute (Culinary Arts). For a number of years, she was a consultant to Pilgrim's Pride Corporation developing recipes, including their newsletter. Her recipes have appeared in advertisements in Good Housekeeping and Southern Living. Chef Eva's private dining and catering services are renowned. For more than a decade she has been teaching cooking classes at the family farm, for a local community college, and other venues. Chef Eva's Latin American upbringing, European parental influences, and two decades of world travel with her husband bring a unique experience to the kitchen that is not easily duplicated.
The Class Experience
Each year brings new opportunities to expand your culinary boundaries by participating in some of the most unique cooking classes available in north Texas. Many have returned to take several classes a year and they in turn bring their friends and family members making it a special tradition. Chef Eva's reputation has grown by word of mouth from satisfied class participants and with the publication of each new article about our family farm. Southern Living designated it as one of "America's Secret Farm Hideaways".
The Dallas Morning News said "In the course of the classes, amateur cooks take turns exclaiming at the revelations chef Eva casually drops. Not only do you push back from the Greer's table with appetite and taste buds sated, but you also go back home to your own kitchen with refreshed pleasure in the process".
Texas Co-Op Power magazine designated our farm and Chef Eva's cooking classes as a place for a learning vacation. "During the whirlwind three-hour class in the spacious, well-lit kitchen, we watched Eva prepare beef roast, lamb chops, pork loin, butternut squash, potatoes, mint sauce, gravy, roasted fruit and toasted pound cake. She handled this complex dance with practical ease, even managing to involve us in pureeing, seasoning, turning, beating and mixing. Delectable smells permeated the kitchen, and we dug appreciatively into the finished dishes. Chef Eva made it fun and had us convinced that we could cook like this ourselves".
