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.

Chef Shelley is truly one in a million! She made my boyfriend and I feel right at home as soon as we stepped foot into her apartment. She turned what was meant to be a simple birthday gift into an unforgettable experience. Chef Shelley is truly so much fun, and I would recommend anyone to try one of her classes! 10/10 - I will be booking another class in the future!
