Shelley is a great personality, very sweet and thoughtful. Highly recommend you try one of her classes! My girlfriend and I have tried other chef/cooking experiences in DC and this was our favorite!

We loved our New Orleans Style Brunch with Chef Shelley! She was very welcoming and friendly from the second we arrived. Our conversations were nothing but lively and fun. We also learned quite a few new cooking techniques and the food was incredible. We will definitely do another class and will be sure to recommend her to our family and friends! Thanks Chef Shelley for a great night!
