Chef Kira was amazing!!! We took her Soul Food 101 class for my mom’s birthday, and loved every minute of it. She even went above and beyond to ensure our class was just the three of us, making for a fun, intimate learning environment. We are already planning our return to take yet another class with her! Book Chef Kira, you will NOT regret it!

Chef Kira was raised by a family of cooks, farmers and nurturers. Memories of making hand pies in her grandmother's kitchen and farming in the yard with her grandfather have inspired her career in food. By cooking in kitchens across Europe and Morocco, she submerged herself in the art of food and learned the true value of flavor. Under her tutelage, you will learn to create meals that taste just as amazing as they are good for you!
