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.

Our experience with Chef Shelley was amazing! She was patient, knowledgeable and passionate about cooking. We did the Seafood Lovers Spread and it was delicious. One of my favorite parts of class was learning how to make shortbread from scratch using a few of Chef's baking techniques. I highly recommend booking a class with Chef Shelley <3

Chef Shelley invited us into her home and made us feel instantly welcomed! Her experiences as a chef and desire to have you actually learn (whether by doing or observing) made cooking with her so much fun. On top of all that, the food is among the best you’ll ever have and it’s all thanks to her guiding hand. 10/10, 5 stars, two thumbs way up. Will go again and highly recommend Chef Shelley to anyone who wants a delicious and entertaining night.
