''I have to admit, having read all that Betsey Beaven had accomplished, inspired and created, I was rather leery/intimidated at the prospect of working with Ms. Beaven. I am not anywhere near being a vegetarian( ask my family) and even further from being vegan... I think Meatatarian would be my official title... but .....
I could not have been more wrong about Betsey and the unbelieveable food and passion she brought to our school. She was the most welcoming, understated, thoughtful, intelligent, creative person I have worked with or met in years.
Her knowledge of mushrooms, herbs and vegetables and her ability to convey it in an engaging manner was a joy to watch.
Again, her passion at seeing the final product plated, tasting a recipe she has done dozens of times in the past, talking on a topic she has extensive knowledge of, is inspiring.

Her cookbooks are a must. ''

"I have collaborated with Betsey Beaven on three occasions; preparing selections from her fine cookbooks for presentation at a wine tasting, a photo shoot for Merrimack Valley Magazine, and a holiday fair where shoppers were so impressed with the food from her recipes that they purchased gift certificates for my chef service on the spot.

Betsey has been a thoughtful, enthusiastic, and creative consultant; always with new ideas to help me develop my business."
