Chef Shelley treats you to a culinary journey through the staples of Southern soul food.

Southern food is the embodiment of American home cooking. In this hands-on class, Chef Shelley brings family recipes, secret ingredients and all, to teach you how to prepare a soul food spread to make any Southern grandmother proud.

You will begin by crafting a red bliss potato salad boasting a secret ingredient that takes this salad to a whole new level. Next, create perfectly crispy cornflake crusted chicken and waffles before finishing the class with an innovative carrot cake made with pineapple, coconut and olive oil — completely sugar-free!

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Treated my mom to this class as a Christmas gift. Chef Shelley was a lot of fun, had some stories to tell and we learned a lot about cooking techniques. Most importantly, the food was incredible and we enjoyed meeting the awesome other people in our group. Highly recommend this experience!
