Chef Shelley was a wonderful host and teacher with an absolutely fantastic personality. Even when some severe storms rolled through and we had to reschedule she was understanding and accomodated us. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for great food, a superb chef, and excellent conversation!

Chef Shelly provided an unforgettable experience for me and my young cousin. I informed chef in advance that my cousin dreams to be a chef one day and I thought this would be a great experience for her and Chef Shelly did not disappoint. She greeted us with open arms like we were family and took time to get to know us and ensured we were comfortable and felt at home before we began. Once we began cooking, she instantly became an educator and ensured we knew the history and origin of each dish, and every technical term in the kitchen. She put us to work and ensured we got our hands dirty to cook an incredible three course meal. After words while we enjoyed our delicious hard work, she spent time sharing her experiences from the highs and lows, from successes and sacrifices so my cousin understands what it takes to become a great chef. My cousin left calling Chef Shelly Nana and ensuring she’ll keep in touch. This one cooking class with Chef Shelly left a lasting impression on us and I’m forever grateful for the experience she provided.
