    Debbie..thanks again for orchestrating such a lovely evening.  We’ve had great feedback from everyone on your presentation, the wines and the restaurant.  It was the perfect location for our company’s holiday gathering.  Of course, none of it would have happened without all your hard work and skill.  Your speaking style was perfect for our event; lively, entertaining, and of course, informative!

    Savvy Cool Curds is hands-down a great idea. There is no one better suited than Vanessa Simmons to select the best in Canadian cheese to discover each month. I’m sure the cheese-of-the-month will succeed because consumers want local…they want Canadian!
