Explore the intricacy and variety of Southern cuisine with Chef Kymberly.
In this interactive class with Chef Kymberly, you'll learn the art of blending spices while cooking three authentic Southern dishes, each chock full of bold flavors and highlighted by fresh ingredients.
You'll begin by preparing spicy, aromatic Cajun shrimp paired with brown butter grits. Next, you'll tackle succulent broiled lobster tails along with roasted succotash, an array of Southern staples that includes corn, lima beans, and okra. For dessert, put your culinary skills to the test by making a sweet orange ricotta cake glistening in citrus glaze.
Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
Chef Kym was funny, warm, and made us feel like we were hanging out with an old friend the whole night. Not to mention that she makes the best shrimp I’ve ever had. Fantastic experience and would recommend for anybody looking for a fun date night or just great homemade food :)

Chef Kymberly was phenomenal. She is incredibly knowledgeable about her craft and did a thorough job explaining the cooking process. We had such a great time having Kymberly over for valentines day that we invited her to come back 4 days later to celebrate a friends birthday with us.
All of the dishes she prepared were delicious and the menus was thoughtfully crafted.

Chef Kymberly prepared an absolutely delicious meal that was (for me) a totally new culinary experience! In addition, she was extremely friendly and was happy to answer our many questions about cajun cooking. I would happily recommend Chef Kym as well as this particular menu, especially for people who are looking for something that would otherwise be hard to find in the Bay Area.

Chef Kimberly was amazing and made our class super informative and fun. She was very prepared and organized and really brought her own personal touch to the experience. She even brought a candle so we could sing happy birthday to my BF, which was so sweet of her. Definitely recommend booking her!

I had a wonderful time with Chef Kymberly! She was warm, funny and personable. Her Southern/Caribbean style of cooking introduced me to the miracle of brown butter! WOW! She showed me how to make grits that was rich, creamy and amazingly delicious. Truly, the BEST grits I've ever had in my life! To top it off, was some cajun spiced shrimp that I couldn't stop eating!

We absolutely loved Chef Kym! The food was amazing and we had such a blast talking to her. We made sure to get her card to book her future classes in Manhattan and the two of us are already talking about hosting another event for a small group of our friends. 10/10 experience.

Food was delicious. A fantastic blend of sweet and savory with a wonderful kick to each dish. Kymberly was very easy to talk to and a whiz in the kitchen. One point for improvement would have been a discussion about the African culture as it relates to the food, and possibly a more hands-on experience.

Chef Kym came with the fire. She was very professional, prepared, personable, and knowledgeable.
I love the intentionality and thought put into the entire meal. Every ingredient had a purpose. She’s definitely living her purpose because the energy in my house after was even more positive and lifted.
