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

Southern soul 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 with a family recipe for red bliss potato salad boasting a secret ingredient that takes this salad to a whole new level. You will also make cornflake chicken and waffles with real maple syrup and an innovative carrot cake with pineapple, coconut, pecans, and olive oil—sans sugar!

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