Professional References

I am writing to provide a reference  for Teri Vlaskamp who was a student on the chef training whilst I was instructing at 105degrees Academy, Oklahoma City.

I found Teri to be a very conscientious student and have been very impressed with her passion to produce high quality food, presented in a very modern way.

I have no doubt that, as she moves into her career as a professional raw food chef, she will continue to maintain a high standard of professionalism and very high quality food.

Yours Sincerely,

Russell James (The Raw Chef)

105degrees Instructor

As an instructor at105degrees Academy, it is with great pleasure that I recommend Teri Vlaskamp to anyone in need of a raw/ vegan chef. Throughout the course, I was continually impressed with Teri’s creativity, passion, and commitment to gourmet cuisine.

During her training, Teri displayed utmost care in regards to sanitation and food quality, assuring clients of the high standards she keeps. When assigned a project, she excelled in preparation, dedication and hard work. She also exhibits superior communications skills and business ethics.

I am confident that Teri will provide excellent cuisine in her career as a raw/ vegan chef and I highly recommend her services.

Teri, I can’t tell you how much yesterday meant to me. The time and care you took to prepare all you did in my binder and the fact that you personalized everything was just incredible! Then the cooking and the sharing and the learning. Mama Mia! Amaaaazing. This is by far the single best investment I have made in myself and I am so glad I did. You are awesome at what you do and the world is lucky to have you in it. Keep sharing your gifts and your extensive knowledge of such an important topic!

    Chef Teri is an amazing and passionate teacher! My family and I really enjoyed tasting all of the different foods from breakfast, to snacks and deserts! I was completely surprised at all of the different food options suggested by Chef Teri. It’s more than “raw veggies and fruits”. She taught us that food can not only be extremely flavorful, but it can also give you the nourishment that your body craves and needs. My outlook on food will never be the same. Thank you for your inspiration and creativity!!
